not sure if you need more than that....
Connection for LAN is there. It is a wireless router that my desktop pc shares. (the desktop connection is perfect.) However the laptop that shares this connection will not work. The exact page that EVERY internet page pulls up is: Internet Explorer Cannot Display the Webpage
My troubleshooting steps:
Diagnose connection problems... Windows cannot find any problems with this computer's network connection.
I have turned off the switch for disabling the LAN, shut the pc down, unplugged the router for 1 minute and then reconnected and powered both on. Nothing. I have tried to visit a secure https site.. nope
Delected browser history and whatnot...
Tried the no add-ons mode.. no
Disabled internet security to no avail. Norton is not working right now anyway and I cannot uninstall and reinstall. I cannot access it at all and cannot download the removal tool...
Windows has not assigned me an IP address (whatever that means)My IP add does not start with 169.x.x.x
After testing it in safe mode I found that I have access there.. Lot of good that it does me.
No third party service is interfering with it. I have checked half them and then the other half neither one of them helps.
Neither does deselcting programs in the startup programs list work to fix the issue.
System restore will not work properly. After restoring to point and restarting it says that it was unable to do it.
reset IE settings....
I think that is all. I may have forgotten a few steps. lol
Please help me.
