Can't connecct to Google/gmail

I'm connected to broadband via Qwest and using gmail. My system suddenly will not connect to Google or gmail. When I use the Windows XP network diagnostic, it indicates that I am not connected to the internet. However, I CAN access other websites other than Google or gmail. Help!

These computers are temperamental things, aren't they?! I worked this morning with a tech in live chat for an hour or more. FINALLY, the solution was as simple as setting the date on the computer properly! Don't ask me why this problem caused this particular difficulty.. Now if I can only remember that the next time it happens.

I pluged my cord into the laptop from my router witch is used for my house connection not wireless or dial up im not to good with this but i tried to troubleshoot it and it said cant diagnose the problem i...

If you have a router, and your PC is fairly new, AND if it's a laptop, you can either plug in the router to it, or just run the disk that came with the router or your broadband connection company, and your laptop will find the connection. It's much nicer to have it be wireless. Use the router disk. You'll need to have the Network name (like "Mom's PC" or something) and the network password. We had a problem with ours too at first, & it made us do several things over & over til finally it suddenly just worked. Are you using a disk to help install it? What did you try to diagnose it with? Windows or the router or a disk? Can you give us a bit more info, please? Also, you can probably just call the broadband company or the router company, and ask them to walk you through getting it going. I have Qwest broadband & they're great about helping.Or the router company will be also. Hope you find a way. If not, come back & tell us more & we'll be glad to try again. :)

Problem in opening the links !

Do you use a router, or are you connecting the modem straight to the laptop?

Does the modem have multiple plugs for computers to plug into (if so, it is functioning as a router as well.?

Do you have any firewall/internet security software installed?

My guess without the above information would be that it is a problem with your DNS setting. Open "Network Connections" and right click on your "Local area connection" and go to properties. Click on the "Internet Protocol (TCP/IP" entry and click properties. Be sure that it is set up to "Obtain DNS server address automatically"
