So recently my computers internet stopped working, it is a desktop, windows 8, and I use a USB wifi dongle to connect to my wifi it says that it is connected to wifi but nothing internet related works. I've tried some of the things others have recommended, I tried pinging a website in command prompt (that worked) and of course I tried restarting my computer, unplugging the dongle and plugging it back in,  I've scanned for Malware, and I made sure that my wifi is working by trying to use it on different devices. and im not sure if it is related or not but around the same time I started getting avgui.exe errors when I start up my computer (and if you are wondering how I am posting this i'm using an old computer)

never mind, I fixed it sorry for the trouble. but if anyone else has problems try this: open command prompt as the administrator and enter these commands (press enter after each one)

ipconfig /flushdns

nbtstat -R

nbtstat -RR

netsh int ip reset c:\resetlog.txt

netsh winsock reset

 

Type exit and hit enter.  Restart the PC and see if you can now connect.
