Lots more info needed;
Dial up/broadband, modem/router, wired/wireless, what do you see when you open a browser, have you tried a different browser, do you have a firewall running, any recent changes or installations, have you tried a System Restore to the point when things worked...

How are you connected to the Internet via USB or an Ethernet cable?

What type of service via Cable or the phone line

What type of equipment just a modem or modem and router

What browser you using IE / Firefox etc

explorer/ ethernet/wired/windows firewall/no recent changes/bthomehub

First thing to try.

Winsockfix click here


No need to flush DNS or reset TCP/IP in this case, which are other suggestions often given...

If that doesn't work

Go to start menu/accessories/command prompt


ipconfig /all

What are the entries for IP address, subnet mask, DNS servers, gateway, DHCP server?
