I used to access internet in my window 7 pc through Samsung mobile phone modem. For the last one week, although the modem successfully connects to the pc and shows 'internet access' message, web pages are not loading. One or two times the browser managed to open some websites like www.keralapsc.gov.in and gmail, but after on hour or so, the problem reappears.

I tried reinstalling the drivers and clearing DNS cache and used IE, Mozilla and chrome.


What to do?
Sorry, if I posted in the wrong section.

I am having a similar issue with my daughter's Dell Inspiron 3521 Windows 8 laptop. The network connection appears to be working as I can ping any address just fine, but no site will resolve in either IE or Chrome browsers. I found that my DNS server settings were different compared to other computers at home, so I set to auto-set and now they match, but I still have the same issue with sites not resolving in browsers. I have cleared caches, flushed the DNS, released and renewed the IP. I am not sure where to go from here. I guess next step will be starting in safe mode, but maybe someone here will have a different or better approach. 


Finally tried doing a restore to a point 10 days back. It is working again. Not sure, but I believe something may have changed some settings in the registry.
