Try fushing the DNS.

  • Go to Start -> Run.
  • In the Box, type in "cmd".
  • A black box will appear. Type in: "ipconfig /flushdns".
  • This should clean your DNS cache.

I saw the value of the ping in your previous post.
That's good since 192.168.1.1 is your router.

Log into your router and check what the DNS is set to.
IF they are set to 192.168.4.100 and 192.168.8.100 set them to the DNS of your ISP.

the DNS values are fixed. DNS 1 is 192.168.4.100 and dns 2 is the one with 8. funny thing is that i can change router settings wirelessly. i released and renewed Dhcp. dns 1 and 2 are now 194. not 192. still no luck. i can still use the wifi with other devices so it must be the laptop

How exactly have you set up your network?
Do you know what a DNS is and what it does?
Do you know you can't just "pick" a DNS address?

Please awnser all 3 of these questions.

I see. I'll try to explain.
A DNS is a Domain Name System.
This system basicly converts IP addresses to 'readable' names.
A simple example you can take is google.
On the internet it is actually known as xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx where xxx is a number between 1 and 254.
Now this would be really hard to remember, so they invented DNS.
A DNS Server binds xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx -> www.google.com
You do have access to the network but 'not' to the internet.
I can do 1 more check to make sure it's a DNS error.

Please try to ping the device.
  • Go to Start -> Run.
  • In the Box, type in "cmd".
  • A black box will appear. Type in: "ping 66.249.93.104"
  • A lot of information will appear, Please right click the black window and hit mark.
  • Select every line of text you recieved and hit "enter" to copy.
  • Then paste it into your next reply.

Also please awnser the question of who your Internet Service Provider is.

Regards,
Olrik
