I had my friend come over the other day with a laptop that had internet issues, I cannot figure out the issue for the life of me and I'm curious if someone could think of something I havn't tried.
The problem: Internet connects, but is limited in fuctionality. Limewire will function (has since been uninstalled), MSN will function properly, AVG will update and thats about it. I cannot view any web pages nothing zip.
What I have tried.
-Refreshing the IP address
-Ran Hijackthis to see if it was a LSP issue
-Pinging various sites (it works)
-Reseting the router
-Trying it on 3 different routers
-Reseting the internal wireless card
-Trying a wired connection (wired and wireless connections produce the same results)
-Ran ATF clearner
-Tried Firefox/IE/Opera all have the same problem
-Using windows diagnostic tools, they all seem to think everything is fine, obviously something isn't
This is all I can think of off the top of my head, I'm pretty sure I have tried others
I'm very weak in my knowledge with networking, the only abnormality that I could find is that IPv6 has limited connectivity, I have searched it on google, but I really don't know what it is exactly and cannot find a fix for my friends problem. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. I have also asked if he knew what was the last thing he did before the incident occured, he cannot recall anything.
If nobody of the fourms can think of anything or I cannot think of anything new, I'm going to do a repair install on the laptop and see what it produces.
