  1. Hello everybody!

    A month ago I had no problem with using my hp compaq laptop which my firm gave me, at home. only thing I had to do was just unclick the box that says "use prox server for all connecions" in internet explorer /tools /settings /connections /lan setting. Everything was fine. Then I do not know what happened but today I can not seem to access any web sites. I tried connecting my speedtouch router by wireless and by ethernet cable. Buth seemed ok. There was connection even 54 mbit connection. but I still can not reach any web sites. I can ping 127.0.0.1, I can ping 192.168.1.254 (my router) But I can not ping google. com or yahoo. com. I thought that it could be because of dns settings. I checked but dns is configured to obtain adress automatically. I just searched previous similar posts but no help I got. I do not know what to do.
    Need Help?

    Thank you..

    Can you access your router by entering 192.168.1.254 in your browser address line?
    That should then let you into the guts of the thing and you can see the what the connection status is.

    Yes. when I enter my routers ip in to the adress line I can access to my router and can see that it has online connection and ip.

    Does that lead me to anything?
