Question about Computers & Internet

I hooked up a new router and now i can't get my internet explorer to work. I diagnosed the problem and it told me it could be a firewall problem. I keep getting this message: HTTP, HTTPS, FTP connectivity warn HTTP: Error 12007 connecting to The server name or address could not be resolved warn HTTPS: Error 12007 connecting to The server name or address could not be resolved warn HTTP: Error 12007 connecting to The server name or address could not be resolved warn HTTPS: Error 12007 connecting to The server name or address could not be resolved

I hooked up my Netgear WGR614 V7 to my boyfriend's computer and his Zhone modem. All of the normal lights were on, my laptop picked up the router, but I couldn't get to the (or 1.1) address...

With that PC still attached to that router, go to that PC's network adapter's status (right-click on its symbol that has a yellow triangle flagged over it in the System Tray.)
Go to "Status" (& sselect the "Support" tab) or go to "Network Management" (& select "Manage Connections" from the left-side menu options).
Verify that the GATEWAY IP address is blank.
If it is blank, then THAT is the problem!

BLANK GATEWAY IP ADDRESS SOLUTION: click on Properties (go back to the "General" tab, if you don't see it), scroll down & select "TCP/IP" (it should not cause an issue if you don't do this in "TCP/IP v6" but you MUST do this in "TCP/IP"), click on Properties, & click on "Advanced..." to click the Default gateways' "Add..." button & enter "" with "Automatic metric." Click "Add," "OK," "OK.," "OK."

IT COULD BE A FIREWALL: Sometimes, people uninstall a software firewall such as Comodo, McAffee, Norton, ZoneAlarm, or others & there could be an associated cleanup tool available for download from the respective company's website (if it has a cleanup tool). It is also possible that the router only accepts assigned MAC addresses--which would be resolved by either adding that PC's MAC address or by disabling this feature from within that router's web administration page (available on your network at through a web browser of your choosing.

OTHERWISE: Internet Explorer generally installs with a connectivity diagnostic utility. Just open Internet Explorer & click on "Diagnose Connection." Follow the steps & it will guide you to the solution or to the cause.

Have you isolated the problem by directly plugging your computer directly to your modem, bypassing your router? If you have done this but still cannot browse some websites, then this is a DNS problem with your Internet Provider. Try using Open DNS, as Primary and as secondary. Then try to browse again. But if you have plugged directly to the modem and was able to access those websites, then there is a restriction on your router and you may need to press and hold the reset button to reset it back to factory defaults.

Open the GUI page of your router and configure DMZ

(Open command prompt on your system, Start>RUN>CMD, type ipconfig in the black window, check the default gateway, put the same address in the address bar of your internet browser like internet explore, it might ask you for username and password, which would be either 'admin' 'admin' or admin for username and 'pasword' for password)

Put your XBOX in DMZ and it should work

Or else simply go into advanced configuration in the Router GUI page and disable NAT

You don't say which firewall you are using but those are the standard ports for the internet so most firewalls will allow those connections anyway. If you are connecting through a router check that your PC's gateway and DNS addresses are set to that of the router (right click on the icon which looks like 2 computer screens in the bottom right and then adjust the TCP/IP properties.

I checked my firewall. All cords are connected properly. The same

When using a router with your internet connection (cable, dsl modem etc.) hooked directly to the routers data port it will use the roughter's dhcp to assign ip addresses to other computer on the network. If you have your internet connection hooked directly to a computer and are using internet connect sharing then you must disable the dhcp service on the roughter because the internet connect sharing has its own dhcp and it will assign all the ip addresses. to get into the roughter's setup you open a browser (internet explorer, mozilla etc.) and type

Windows Vista - No internet-no backup

Sometimes after you install Norton antivirus products, most notably Norton System works, the firewall included with the antivirus will block the internet from working properly. Right click on your Norton Icon on the right side of your task bar & turn norton off. Try your internet again. You may have to close & re-open Internet explorer after you shut off your norton. The other thing is you could remove your firewall entirely, as your router should have a firewall in it, and if you are using win xp, it also has a firewall. This kind of configuration sometimes causes some rather unusual effects.

Assuming your router is set correctly to your modem or the password and username are set correctly in a modem/router, make sure DHCP is enabled in the router, this gives each pc an ip address automatically.

Go to open internet explorer>tools>internet options>connections tab and ensure never dial a connection is ticked or greyed out. close IE

go to network connections, right click on your wireless adapter>properties>highlight TCP/IP line>properties and make sure that obtain an ip address automatically is ticked.

Open up internet explorer again and click refresh a few times, it will detect the proxy server then should connect, if not then the router configuration is wrong.

Netgear Firewall

with the router connected, open Internet Explorer and type after you log in there is a option on the left for firewall and you can turn it off. If it were me I would use the routers firewall over a software firewall though. By the time a software firewall detects a hack, its already in the PC.
