OK.  Look at your ipconfig.  Note the gateway address.  I assume it is 192.168.1.1 but if it's not substitute the address you get in the following:

 

ping 192.168.1.1

 

Do you get 4 replies?  If so try:

 

nslookup google.com

 

You should get something like:

 

 
Non-authoritative answer:
Name:    google.com
Addresses:  2607:f8b0:4002:c09::65
          74.125.21.102
          74.125.21.138
          74.125.21.139
          74.125.21.113
          74.125.21.101
          74.125.21.100
 
Do you?    Does that work?  If so try f1.com  (Something about formula 1 racing)
 
Try typing in  69.58.188.49 in your browser and hit Enter.  That's another way to get to f1.com

Typing ip address 69.58.188.49 or 216.58.217.46 produces Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage.
 
I have managed to download and install firefox. I can get to google.com that way with the ip address.

Open a Command Window again and type:

 

ping 8.8.8.8

 

and hit Enter.  Does it give you 4 replies?  If so Let's change the DNS servers to something different.

 

Go to Control Panel>Network Connections and select your local network. Click Properties, then select Internet Protocol (TCP/IP). Click Properties.   Click on Use the following DNS server addresses.  Put in 8.8.8.8 in the top box and 8.8.4.4 in the second box then   OK.   Check that it is working by putting in   nslookup google.com   in a Command Prompt window.    

 

Any difference in IE or Firefox?

It seems like it is working now, if not perfectly, at least better and having chrome and firefox available gives me some other options. 

 

Thank you for all of your help.

Where are you located?  That's a google address too tho why you get it I haven't a clue.  Are you close to Mountain View CA?

 

 

Try to reset IE:

 

Open IE, Tools, Internet Options, Advanced.  There should be a Reset button near the bottom.  Try it then close and reopen IE.
