I have had the HTTP 12007 error, where the laptop connects to the wireless network, but neither IE or Firefox will show web pages.

I have done the following in no specific order:

Reinstalled IE 8
Reinstalled Pro Set Wireless
Cleared the ARP cache
Removed Norton Anti Virus
Pinged yaho.com - doesnt return a message!

A friend said to visit here and ask for help. Is ComboFix the answer?

Thanks in advance to anyone who has the time to help me.

I forgot to say its on Windows XP Sp3 on a Panasonic Toughbook CF18.

does it work connected via ethernet cable? Do other computers work with that router?

12007 is not an http error except in the fevered brain of microsoft "make it act like a mac" department.

It is usually because you don't have a good dhcp address, the right dns server, or your firewall is doing what it thinks is best.... and you are using IE.

Its a DNS Error check with your ISP for the proper DNS IP addresses.

a quick check is to open a dos window and type
ping 72.14.213.147

if that goes through, open the browser and type in

http://72.14.213.147
and see if google doesn't open up.

If it does open that dos window again and type ipconfig /all
and compare the dns servers with what your isp says to use.

Thanks for taking the time to help me on this. I am out on the road travelling just now, but as soon as I get back home I will try the ping and DNS check.

Thanks

Hi again. This is what I have tried:


1 - I tried OpenDNS 208.67.222.222 - primary and 208.67.220.220 - secondary

2 - ping 72.14.213.147 works fine.

3 - http://72.14.213.147 goes through to google.

4 - ipconfig /all returns the dns servers with what I typed above.

5 - Still no web pages displayed normally in IE or Firefox.

Then I did this:

1 - I tried BT DNS 62.6.40.162 and 194.72.0.98

2 - ping 72.14.213.147 works fine.

3 - http://72.14.213.147 goes through to google.

4 - ipconfig /all returns the dns servers with what I typed above.

5 - Still no web pages displayed normally in IE or Firefox.

Other PCs are connected to the router via wireless and by wired connection and work just fine.

Is there anything else I can try?

Im guessing you maybe infected with something or your security settings are messed up.

Hi there. Yes I think you may be right. I have uninstalled Norton Antivirus so there is no Security now that I know of. The firewall is off. Could there be something hidden that uninstall has not removed?

I tried a restore point before doing all that butthat didnt work either.

A this stage I am willing to try anything!

Do the other computer have a hard set dns servers in tcp/ip properties? or are they getting it from the router via dhcp...

Check and see if you have a proxy set in either ie or firefox. If so remove it from one and test the browser.

install avg9 if you have no antivirus. (avg 9 now checks for active leftover resident parts of norton or mccaffee that did not get uninstalled properly)

Then try malwarebytes and superantispyware.

Another command line test is this:
telnet 72.14.213.147 80

If you get a blank screen, type
GET HTTP

in all caps, and you should get the html code for the google landing page.

Try it again with google.com instead of the ip address.

Do you have both wired and wireless connection on this computer to test? Do you get the same results for both?
Do you have a usb wireless to try?

If all else fails, you could uninstall tcp/ip and reinstall. That's a long shot though.

This is a confusing tool from microsoft but it might trip over something you can fix:

good luck.

OK - So this is where I am at:

The other computers don not have a hard set dns servers in tcp/ip properties. They are getting it from the router via dhcp.

I have no proxy set in either ie or firefox. Both still not working.

I tried command line test is this:telnet 72.14.213.147 80

I did get a blank screen. I typed GET HTTP and it ran through lots of text then returned a message saying Connection to host lost.

I didnt get the html code for the google landing page.

Tried it again with google.com instead of the ip address. It said Could not open connection to the host, on port 23: Connection failed.

I do have both wired and wireless connection on this computer to test. I do you get the same results for both.

I dont have a usb wireless to try.

I am just about to try the AVG9.

You are supposed to do this:

telnet ipaddress 80

where 80 is the port that http is ran on.

Ah OK! How do I check which port number to use instead of 80?

I have also tried to install AVG9, but it needs an internet connection - which of course I still dont have!
