Just today, I encountered a weird bug.

I have a proper internet connection, but suddenly, all my internet browsers will fail to load any webpage. ( The wifi icon at the taskbar is still normal )

I tried the ping command using cmd, it worked. That adds on to the mystery..

Disconnecting and reconnecting to my wireless netowork makes no difference.

I tried connecting to a different wireless connection, makes no difference too.

For Firefox, whenever I click on any link or type into the search bar, absolutely nothing happens.

For Chrome, I get this error message : Posted Image

For IE, I get this error message : Posted Image

Hello -
This has been a problem with Chrome since it was released (or at least since 5 years ago) -

Go to Internet Explorer > Tools > Internet options > Connections > LAN settings and check the auto detect box (Top Box) > OK > OK

See if that setting works for you -

Good Luck -
