IE unable to open web pages


The version of IE does not matter.

Click "START"
Click "RUN"
Enter 'cmd' and press ENTER.
Enter 'ping www.yahoo.com' and press ENTER.
Do you get output like:

Reply from 209.131.36.158: bytes=32 time=81ms TTL=56
Reply from 209.131.36.158: bytes=32 time=37ms TTL=56
Reply from 209.131.36.158: bytes=32 time=44ms TTL=56
Reply from 209.131.36.158: bytes=32 time=61ms TTL=56
Ping statistics for 209.131.36.158:
Packets: Sent = 4, Received = 4, Lost = 0 (0% loss),

If so, then your Internet connection is working fine.
If not, then you have no Internet connection.

laptop wont open web pages


Also, you may try the following:

First, let's try to find if you get to Internet at all.

Click on START and then RUN. In the small window, type cmd and then click OK or press ENTER.
A DOS window wil open and you'll see a blinking cursor.

Type:
ping www.google.com and press ENTER
you should get 4 lines with something like
'Reply from 208.69.32.231: bytes=32 time=90 TTL=52'

If you get
'Reply from 208.69.32.231 time out, it is NOT good.
Then try this:
Type
ping 208.69.32.231 and press ENTER.

Did something change?

Leave this (DOS) window open.


Open START, then Control Panel and then Internet Options.
Click on Second Tab, SECURITY.
You will see 4 icons. All of them should be set to Default Level.
If they are not, set them on Default Level selecting one by one.
(If you are using IE7, than you can click on
'Reset all zones to default level')
Now, go to ADVANCED Tab and click on
'Restore advanced settings'.

Click APPLY and then OK.

Now, go back to DOS window and repeat the 'ping' commands.

Any changes ?

Wireless Internet


I am guessing you are connecting that netgear card wirelessly? Does it get an IP address? Have you tried pinging the router from the laptop once the connection has been made? Try this. Go to the start menu, click the run button and in there type cmd and press enter. Once the black command prompt is open try ping yahoo.com See if that comes up with anything. Also try typing ipconfig and press enter. It will show 3 things.
IP address
subnet
gateway.

The gateway should be your 2wire modem.
Try ping gateway ip and see if that works.

Let me know! thank you.
