    Internet working but Windows reports not working


    Hi guys, The internet is able to connect, via ethernet or via wifi, but Windows reports that the internet connection is not available. The annoyance is that Windows apps think they can't connect, so really that only affects them. All other non-Windows app programs work fine and connect ok. This happened after a power outage reset the tp-link router. The tech came in and got the router working again, and every device was able to reconnect to it after changing their connection credentials.You can see the 'world' icon showing as I prepare this post. I'm wondering now if it will actually prevent

  2. Browsers report no internet while ping works and windows reports connection

    On my Windows 10 laptop from the browser (Chrome, Firefox, Waterfox, Edge) trying to access internet sites reports that it can't connect after a while, but ping works. Accessing local servers is fine. Accessing sites through an explicit local proxy in Waterfox also works.

    After a reboot the browsers work for a bit, but then fail.

    putty telnet seems to work fine.

    I've already tried steps from:

    Ping works fine, but no Internet connection in browser

    I've done a wireshark and it shows that TCP connections are getting reset (RST packets from the machine as far as I can tell).

    The machine has Sophos Anti-virus installed. MS Office also, but not much else.

    EDIT:
    I have now tried:

    • Disabled the firewall - the problem still occurs.
    • Tried Opera browser as well
    • Tried wget from powershell - also reports the connection being reset, at the same time that the browsers are not working
    • Tried Privoxy - also not working when browsers direct aren't working.
    • Removed Sophos entirely in case that was causing the problem.
    • Done a malware scan with Sophos Virus Removal Tool, which found nothing.
    • Updated the wireless driver for the built-in wireless adapter.
    • Tried a USB wireless driver.
    • Tried a wired connection, which seemed to work, but maybe we didn't leave it long enough.
    • Flushing the caches of Chrome, which appeared to work for a while.

    Any ideas for how to get browsing working reliably?

  3. internet audio isnt working

    Hard data works on the desktop through software but streaming audio or flash audio through internet browsers doesnt seem to play.

    im working on this problem on someone else's computer. i've updated their realtek audio controllers through windows update, i've uninstalled and reinstalled adobe flash, i've tried both IE and FF3 and i still dont see any resolve.

    if there's anything that can be done or if anyone else has had this problem in the past, suggestions are welcomed.

    this computer is a compaq with vista home premuim, 1G ram, intel chipsets, and realtek audio controllers.
