Hi, I'm running Windows Vista SP1, normally with AVG Free/Firefox/Adblock Plus.

Since morning, my computer can't access the internet. It can access computers on the LAN.
I haven't checked the connection in safe mode.

I downloaded AVG Rootkit Free, Avast!, and Spybot, but to no avail.
Hijackthis didn't find anything I found suspicious, and SDFix didn't find any hidden files.

I'm out of ideas.
Any help is appreciated!

I tried resetting my router, and that restore internet to my main desktop.
Strange how the router could've been the problem, since other computers had internet connection.

A forum moderator gave me the idea to reset by moving this topic here...
Thank you very much,

So, it appears the issue is fixed?
