Hey,
I've been searching online for weeks on how to fix this, but I have no clue.

Info:
The router is a 2Wire DSL Gateway Model 2701HG-B from AT&T.
I currently use a SpeedStream 4100 DSL Modem from AT&T.
I plugged the ethernet and phone cord into the 2Wire DSL Gateway Model 2701HG-B, my Intel® Pro/Wireless 2200BG Network Connection says its connection is great, however I cannot surf the web. My laptop will say its connected to other routers if I travel but will not allow me internet access. It used to work, now it no longer does. I reset the router, repair connection, rebooted, no luck. What am I missing?


i'm having the same exact problem as the person who start the thread below:

Thank you!

Check your web browser to see if there is any Proxy Information
If you go to a DOS command prompt what is the result if you type 'ping google.com' without the quotes? If you get replies, it could be an issue with your web browser.

"pinging google.com [74.125.67.100] with 32 bytes of data:

Reply from 74.125.67.100: bytes=32 time=58ms ITL=54
Reply from 74.125.67.100: bytes=32 time=58ms ITL=54

the fact that you got replies means that you are indeed connected to the Internet. You say that Firefox had proxy settings, write them down somewhere and then remove them and then try to browse.

That's the default setting I believe. So you can ping google.com, but cannot see it when you type the address in firefox. Try the follwing, click on start then run and type cmd and press OK, this will get you a DOS prompt, in the DOS window, type

telnet google.com 80 if it just stops on "connecting to google.com" then port 80 is being blocked

if it goes to a blank DOS window type GET and press enter

After the DOS window went blank I typed GET and hit enter and got this:

Well this proves that port 80 is not blocked and that your internet connection is working. Its possible you have a firewall that has firefox in a block list, have you tried using Internet Explorer to view Websites?

Yes sir, but no luck.

My wireless is Firewalled, as is my Local Area Connection, and my 1394 Connection.

Are you using the Windows Firewall or a third party firewall like Norton or Mcafee? Try clicking on start then run and type netsh winsock reset and reboot.

did you try the winsock reset? You have to reboot after. When your unable to reach the site, what error message does your web browser give you?

I did the winsock reset and rebooted.

"Firefox can't find the server at www.geekstogo.com.







The browser could not find the host server for the provided address.

* Did you make a mistake when typing the domain? (e.g. "ww.mozilla.org" instead of "www.mozilla.org")
* Are you certain this domain address exists? Its registration may have expired.
* Are you unable to browse other sites? Check your network connection and DNS server settings.
* Is your computer or network protected by a firewall or proxy? Incorrect settings can interfere with Web browsing."
