When I tried to install the newest version of iTunes, the computer told me to install Service Pack 2.
So I did.
Then I had no internet.

Lots of phone calls with Verizon and Dell have revealed the following:
1. In DOS, I was able to successfully ping google.com
2. In safe mode, I can get the internet through a browser.
3. Clearing the cookies, temporary files and history from Explorer didn't help
4. Nor did resetting all Internet Options to default
5. Nor did doing a System Restore back to idyllic pre-Service Pack 2 times.

Lets try and see whether you have equipment related problems. In this step, we will allow the equipment to self-diagnose and resolve the problems.

If you suddenly lose connectivity over your High Speed Internet line, have a slow connection or are unable to browse the Internet despite indications that you are connected, it is possible that your modem is not communicating properly with the Internet network.

Save all your current work, close all open applications, then shut down your computer ...unplug router and modem

Power up the modem first and after it gets initialized and all the lites are steady..
power up the router...after all the lites are on...
power up the computer

The above steps should take care of your problem

no joy then try this..

Reset WINSOCK entries to installation defaults...type in ... netsh winsock reset catalog .... press ...enter

Reset TCP/IP stack to installation defaults...type in...... netsh int ip reset reset.log ... press ...enter
