Inter net browser opens but doesn't connect, internet connection is connected but cant connect to the browser?

The modem indicates a connection and the browser starts up and opens but I get no start page or any pages...therefore no connetion from the browser to the modem?

This is typical, there's a new virus that overwrites the dns server details and the only fix for this problem is either to waste hours recovering dns or doing a clean installation will fix it. "clean installation means format the hard drive, and re-install your operating system"

please rate me.

First check your network adapter settings )make sure that it is set to 'obtain ip address automatically'). In network and sharing center, make sure that you are not using a public network. Also, in control panel, internet options on the connections tab, make sure that use a proxy server is not checked in LAN Settings.

One is that my desktop computer keeps saying that 'internet can not connect to google.


Are you able to surf the internet with Internet Explorer in normal ways?

If the answer is no, get any latest version of new browser (chrome, firefox, etc) and make it as your default browser and see if the problem persists or not.

And if the answer is yes, the problem may be lying into IE itself. Now, again, use any other updated browser and make it default and see what happens.

Hope this helps, Mrityunjay.

How to set goggle as default browser


Google is a search engine not a browser.
You can run any browser such as Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox and get them to default to Google as the default search engine or you can save Google as a Favourite in IE or a Bookmark in Firefox.

To set Google as the default home page in IE.
Open Internet Explorer then enter www.google.com when Google page opens then Click on Tools - Internet Options
In the General tab click Use current.
Now when you open IE then Google automatically opens.

To set Google as the default home page in Firefox.
Open Firefox then enter www.google.com when Google page opens then Click on Tools - Options
In the General tab click Use current pages.
Now when you open Firefox then Google automatically opens.

If you are using any other browsers then setting up Google as the default page is configures in a similar method.

Desktop problem


try downloading and installing firefox web brwoser, then use this instead of internet explorer... you may just have a bug in your internet explorer and it is so much easier to use firefox than to try and repair a faulty internet explorer.

go here for firefox :

When i load the IE I can see nothin at all


Ok well first we must ensure there are no "Other" problems. Download the Firefox Browser, or Opera www.mozilla.com, www.opera.com download and install and use this to check to see if it is a Browser problem of a PC problem. If there is no problem connecting with Firefox, then I suggest that you do a repair install or an Upgrade of your Internet Explorer, This will prob fix your problem.. Really don't use IE anyway use FF or Opera, another good one is Google Chrome... I love it.
