1 pc on my network cannot connect to the internet

This PC is plugged to a router which is used (without problems) by other PCs

Internet explorer will not find any page (reorting DNS error)

Outlook cannot accsess POP3 box

PC can see all other PC's on the network

Pinging the router ( is succsessful
Pinging Google ( isn't

Have followed proceedure (from another thread) to remove any damaged IE plugins (removed cookies, files, history, objects. set security to med low, restored defaults &disabled 3rd party browser extensions)

have tried the command ipconfig /flushdns

have also tried using a winsock repair utility called xptcprep.exe

have now run out of ideas and would appreciate some input

sounds like you gave it a good go! have you tried uninstalling the driver and re-installing?
did you check to make sure the dns servers werent set static?
try another cable?
another nic?
rip out the protocols and reinstall them.
couple more ideas to try perhaps.
have fun

If you have SP2. goto the command prompt and type:

netsh winsock reset catalog

then restart computer. If that does not work connect directly to the modem.
