Internet Problems on a LAN computer?

May 6, 2008
  1. Hi ive been experiencing internet problems with my Custom made computer. The computer Has a Nividia 680i Evga motherboard with all drivers Current and up to date. This computer just had a Reformat about 5 days ago due to XP SP3 installation error. My internet was running Great Until i got home today Fire Fox Will Load my Home page witch is igoogle with all my Gadgets including my gmail preview. But when i click on a link it wont load... so i tried out IE5 to see if it works funny thing it does but i have to close it, Re open to do any searches because they just wont load... I did an internet speed test and it showed up a bit sluggish so i did it again and it showed normal speed...tried FF and IE5 and nothing...then i thought about my reformat and forgot about an anti virus.... so i got NOD32 and it picked up 2 virus it deleted and i restarted... And the internet still does not work


    Rebooted my router and my modem,
    Reset my router to Factory settings,
    switched cables around rebooted,

    the thing is that all my other computers that are in my network are running just fine... if anyone gots any suggestions id be nice

    Open 'command prompt'(CMD) and see if you can ping the gateway.

    From the command prompt type: ipconfig/all

    Somewhere on that page you should be able to find 'default gateway.......192.168.x.x'

    If you can't ping that IP, there is something wrong. This is just a start though.

    Also, check to see if your anti virus is blocking any sort inbound/outbound traffic. This might be the problem. Not sure though.

    Ping Came Up just fine and i dont got any Firewalls or anti Virus that inhibit the use of internet programs,

    I think that i have a spyware , "Trusted Anti-Virus" im working on getting rid of it rite now .

    Thread should be in the Security and the Web forum
    May be better to post there for more assistance

    Try this anyway:

    You should also download and run CCleaner, to clean out all temporary files

    • Please download Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware to your desktop.
    • Double-click mbam-setup.exe and follow the prompts to install the program.
    • At the end, be sure a checkmark is placed next to
      • Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
      • and Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
    • then click Finish.
    • If an update is found, it will download and install the latest version.
    • Once the program has loaded, select Perform full scan, then click Scan.
    • When the scan is complete, click OK, then Show Results to view the results.
    • Be sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
