Cleared cookies, temp internet files (around 5% storage) and history etc

The problem only happens now and then , as far as i can tell internet connection (bt broadband) has not dropped.

I am assuming you have checked and it is not set to use a proxy?

Can you ping any addresses on the Internet? If not can you ping your gateway?

LOL

Click on start, then run, then type cmd and press the ok button.

When at the cmd prompt type:

ping insertipaddresshere and press enter

If you get replies from the ip address then you can reach that address.

First type ipconfig /all and press enter.

Find the default gateway from the information listed. Try to ping that address.

Then try to ping an address on the Internet like google at , 216.239.51.104.

If that works so far so good. Then try pinging www.google.com.

If that fails then we know we have DNS issue and can move forward.

So you could ping google, with both ip and hostname, and your gateway?

Yet when you browse it does not work?

Have you downloaded mozilla firefox and seen if that works? This will allow us to get to the specific problem which may be internet explorer itself and nothing else on your computer.
