    If the browser is able to access the local network, then check settings for the firewall and/or browser.

    lets see if TCP is ok first -- get a command prompt (run cmd)
    First clean up TCP;
    netsh winsock reset catalog

    netsh int ip reset reset.log

    netsh winsock reset

    ipconfig /flushdns

    net stop "dns client"
    net start "dns client"

    ipconfig /release
    ipconfig /renew​
    now determine what the TCP settings are
    ipconfig /all​

    try to access using an address
    now see if DNS will find a website

    if ALL this works without 'timeouts' or 'unreachable host', then try the browser again.
