For some reason I can connect to almost any place I go, but can't connect at my own home. One look into my 'Network Connection Details' shows 3 DNS servers and 'according to my son' 2 of them shouldn't be there at all. My IPV4 protocols show that only  the one is selected for use, but for some reason, 

 

Can someone help me here? Can't figure out what is wrong with my laptop ... my son thinks the other two are from something I may have downloaded or whatever ... but he thinks THEY keep changing things

 

HELP PLEASE!

Tried that a number of times ... as well as my son coming back to my laptop and changing the Server back to 192.168.1.1 ... but the other 2 addresses in the picture in my post keep overriding  me

Something doesn't look right there, I'd put a check in obtain DNS servers automatically and reboot.

And

Copy and paste the text in the code box below into Notepad.

@Echo off
pushd\windows\system32\drivers\etc
attrib -h -s -r hosts
echo 127.0.0.1 localhost>HOSTS
attrib +r +h +s hosts
popd
ipconfig /release
ipconfig /renew
ipconfig /flushdns
netsh int ip reset all
netsh winsock reset catalog
shutdown -r -t 1
del %0
Save as flush.bat to your desktop.
Then
right-click flush.bat and select "Run as Administrator" your computer will reboot.

What's confusing here is that you said you "can connect to anywhere except at home." That would indicate a router / modem problem at home. If the computer connects at say the church then there would be nothing wrong with the computer.

Can other computers connect at home ?

Do this too,

Open a command prompt--> right-click on the Start button, and choose Command Prompt.

Copy & Paste the following:
 
cmd /c "ipconfig /all > postme.txt & ping yahoo.com >> postme.txt & reg query "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings" | find /i "proxy" >> postme.txt & notepad postme.txt & del postme.txt"

into the Command Prompt window, exactly as shown above, including double quotes:
press ENTER on keyboard.

A file will open in Notepad. Please copy and paste the contents here. Close the Notepad window and the file will be deleted and the Command Prompt window will also close. Post results in a reply here.


Try this too,

1. Open Network and Sharing Center.
2. Click "Change Adapter Settings".
3. Find Network Connection that is used to connect to internet (either "Local Area Connection" or "Wireless Connection"), right-click on it and click Properties.
4. Now in new windows select "Internet Protocol 4 (TCP/IPv4)" and click Properties button.
5. In the new window click the checkbox for "Use the following DNS server addresses:"
6. Type in 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4
7. Click Ok and close the rest of the windows.

After this is done, check your internet connection and if you can open pages.

We will be leaving for my sister-in-law's house in Florida tonight .... I'm not at  home to check this out right now ... I will take care of this when we get back home ... we will be gone for about 2 weeks. 

She is having major surgery and I didn't want you to think I just quit ... I appreciate your help ...

after changing the server address to  8.8.8.8 and so on, I am able now to connect to sites I wasn't before ... thanks  for all this help 
 
I'm sure I should replace my router at some point and maybe upgrade my satellite service, but not until my free-loading step-son  and his girlfriend  move out :)
