I'm sure other people have had this problem, and I have viewed their threads and tried everything that was listed that I could find, but to no avail.
I have a HP Pavilion running Windows Vista Home Premium. I try to connect to the internet, but whenever I try to browse it cannot display the webpage I am trying to load. And here's the kicker, the darn thing says I am connected, with full bars even.
As far as I can tell, I have no out of date drivers
, I checked and double checked to make sure.
I have tried resetting the TCP/IP and winsock settings/files using the commands I found in a thread on this forum, but it didn't work. I tried using ipconfig described in another thread, and even though I can successfully ping sites (three different ones I might add), the release/renew commands didn't resolve it. I even tried a system restore to rollback updates, still didn't work.
Most of what I found in these forums I have tried, but I cannot seem to establish internet connection even though it says I am connected.
It has yet to be updated to Service Pack 2, but I'm pretty sure that's not what's causing the problem, but it's a possibility. I would try to copy and paste the results of ipconfig /all, but it seems like you can't do that with a DOS window as well as you can with any normal text window.
I have exhausted my research capabilities to a good degree and am in need of assistance.
