Question about NetGear WGT624 Wireless Router
Yesterday my friend and I were watching an episode of a tv show online on his laptop, then suddenly the internet went out, i restarted both the modem and router many times but nothing worked.
he always uses my internet connection via his wireless card and has never had a problem until yesterday.
i didnt bother checking my laptop if the connection worked (i use a netgear wireless adapter), so i just left it alone and went to bed.
this morning i checked my internet connection ( i use a netgear wireless adapter) and the connection was the same as his laptop. its connected but cant go to sites.
so i disabled my wireless adapter and actually tried to connect directly from the modem, and it worked. then i unplugged the ethernet cable and enabled my wireless adapter again, and to my surprise, my internet connection was fixed! so i tried the same method with my friends laptop, but sadly it did not work.
i then tried to diagnose the problem and it said something about ''policy provider:windows firewall filter name: query user''
i yahooed this and found other people asking about the same problem, but none were ever resolved. i've tried using openDNS but that didnt work either.
i tried pinging the IP address and it did reply 4 times, then i pinged yahoo and it said ''ping request could not find host yahoo.com'' so now i'm out of ideas
sorry for the entry being so long...i just wanted to be very detailed so it would be easier for someone to help me....thanks
EDIT: i disabled his antivirus (AVG) also but did not fix the problem
First try forcing the DNS Address by channging the option to use the following DNS address in TCP/IP properties. primary DNS is 22.214.171.124 and the secondary DNS is 126.96.36.199 then try to connect. This should work if it doesnt follow the steps 2.
If it is Vista, then Vista has two FW administration user interface screens. One looks as the XP admin UI screen, and the other one is different and is the Advanced FW UI.
> Go to the Adv FW UI which is off of Control Panel. The icon looks like a brick wall.
> It will show you all the FW rules. So look for the filter name, and you can right-click the line and do what you need to do.Let me know whether this works?
