hey there im running vista home premium on a dell xps decktop and ive been running into the following problem

when i sit at my desktop my wireless connection is apparently strong, in that when viewed on my windows wireless management software i have excellent connection. However, as the title says, when i use the internet in anyway my connection brakes, this happens when google chrome, internet explorer, or any of my online games are used.

at first i thought it was a hardware problem however i've verified with my notebook (the comp im on now) that it is not my wireless modem. i also replaced my wireless adapter on the xps as i have a buddy at the comp store who replaced it for free :P. i've checked that my drivers are all up to date and eventually arrived at the idea of a virus. ive ran malwarebytes, microsoft security essentials, and the windows malware detector all in safe mode and normal mode and still have come up with nothing. i'm kind of at a dead end here and would like yo here what you have to say.

thank you

Hello, lets try this ...

Please click Start > Run, type inetcpl.cpl in the runbox and press enter.
Click the Connections tab and click the LAN settings option.
Verify if "Use a proxy..." is checked, if so, UNcheck it and click OK/OK to exit.
Now check if the internet is working again.


Go to Start ... Run and type in cmd
A dos Window will appear.
Type in the dos window: netsh winsock reset
Click on the enter key.

Reboot your system to complete the process.

If needed : type these one line at a time, press enter after each line. See if it works after each.

netsh interface ipv4 reset
netsh interface ipv6 reset
ipconfig /flushdns
