Hello! First time posting, so I apologize if I do anything incorrectly.
So as of sometime this last weekend, my internet stop working correctly. I have Windows 7.
I left home Friday to visit my parents, and came home sunday to find it not functioning.
My computer claims to be connected, and I can go as far as properly ping google throught he command prompt successfully.
I have tried numerous suggested fixes from friends. Drivers have been uninstalled and reinstalled(Both for my motherboard and wireless card/dongle), ips have been verified, pings have been established, routers have been reset and reverified, new hardware has been brought in, I've tried it with multiple different networks. I can ping Google through the command prompt, no problem.
And still nothing happens.
I mean that in a literal sense. When I bring up a browser window, I click a link or a favorite, and it tries connecting for a split second before stopping.
It doesn't even go to a "Cannot connect" or "Error" page or anything, it just doesn't move or go anywhere.
I have tried multiple different malware programs, including Combofix and Malwarebytes, and other fix programs like WindsockFix on top of that.
I have verified that I'm not being rerouted through any proxies, nor that I'm being blocked by any routers. Like I said, I've tried connecting to multiple different networks miles apart from eachother.
It is very specifically my PC. My roommates internet works fine, my phone connects fine, my 3DS works fine, and my PS3 works fine. All connect and work no problem.
I currently have my desktop at work, just to see if it was the internet provider I was suddently having a problem with. It was not.
The only clue I have as to when it stopped working was that my AVG Virus program updated around 7pm Saturday Jul 5th--Literally in the middle of me not being anywhere near my home or computer.
So I'm out of ideas. My friends are out of ideas.
So hey! Let's ask the internet. You guys are smart.
Well, if you need any more information about my set up, by all means, ask away.
I'm at work currently, so I have internet readily available.
Thanks for reading!
