Can you ping a public IP like 4.2.2.1? If yes, can you ping yahoo.com? Post back with the result of ipconfig /all.

I have the same problem here. Able to ping google.com and public ip addresses
but I'm not able to even access my router's interface or surf any websites.

I was having this problem on my new PC which came preinstalled with
Vista, where although everything previously worked and I still had
internet connectivity, as shown by my still being able to refresh my
DHCP information, change my DNS settings, and ping my router, suddenly
DNS stopped resolving, not internet connections succeeded, and trying
to bring a a browser window resulted in the popup:

*www.microsoft.com is not set up to establish a connection on
port "World Wide Web service (HTTP)" with this computer.*

Well, I finally figured out the problem. I had recently installed
Kapersky AntiVirus. Kapersky wasn't the problem though. The problem
was that the the Dell computer came preinstalled with Norton Internet
Security, and that program was causing conflicts. I removed it through
Programs and Features on the Control Panel, and the problem went away.

I hopes this information helps someone else suffering with this
problem, as right now there is nothing else on Google out there with a
solution.

I'm still getting a lot of blue screens though, with symscan.exe.
Probably just more unstable crapware from Symantec that Dell
pre-installed. Hopefully, I'll figure it out before too long.

Hi spoo,

Here's an easy solution I found:

Open the browser that's not working for you and make sure that for it's
LAN connections, it's not using a proxy server.

So, eg ... *-for IE: go to Tools --> Internet Options --> Connections
Tab --> make sure the box for 'Automatically detect settings' and 'Use a
Proxy Server for LAN'-* are _BOTH_UNCHECKED_.

Worked for me. Hope this helps anyone with this annoying problem.
