My laptop all of a sudden stopped connecting to the internet for some reason. I have a dell inspiron E1505 with windowx xp media center edition sp 3. I can get an ip adress but when I go to the internet I get"Internet explorer cannot display the webpage". When I type in the gateway to my router which is a Verizon GT704WG, I get the same thing "Internet explorer cannot display the webpage". I have tried using winsockxp, and tried the following commands netsh int ip reset reset.log , netsh winsock reset catalog then rebooted my computer and still cant connect. Please help

Hey Rodgers,

Does the same issue occur if you use an Ethernet (wired) connection? Please post the results of a connectivity test.

Step 1 - Connectivity test:
  • Press Start
  • Select Run
  • Type cmd and press OK
  • In the new command prompt window, please type the following commands (*Note: each ping will take approximately 10 seconds to complete; wait for the command prompt to return before you type the next one. Also, the single '>' and double '>>' are intentional; please type the commands exactly as they appear):
    • ipconfig /all > C:\results.txt
    • route print >> C:\results.txt
    • ping 127.0.0.1 >> C:\results.txt
    • ping google.com >> C:\results.txt
    • ping 209.85.171.100 >> C:\results.txt
  • Once the above commands have completed, navigate to your C: drive and open the text file results.txt -- please copy/paste the contents of this file into your next response.
Also, try restarting your machine in Safe Mode with Networking and see if you can connect to the Internet.

Step 2 - Restart your machine in Safe Mode with Networking:
Please restart the problematic machine in Safe Mode with Networking and then see if you can get an Internet connection; can you?
*Note: You will not be able to use a wireless connection while in Safe Mode; please ensure all tests are performed with a wired (Ethernet) connection.

Heres an Update

I was able to update my Antivirus in safemode, once it updated I restarted the laptop scanned for viruses & spyware and it picked up alot then restarted, and now the internet is working again. If you still have some stuff for me to do, I will gladly do it.
