Hi I have just swapped over to BT broadband. I'm all hooked up and the internet is working. However, my PC says it's connected to the internet, but when I try to search something on a search engine, it brings up a list of webpages, but when I click on them it says webpage may be temporarily down or it has moved etc. This happens on every single webpage...I know they're not down, I just think my internet can't see them or won't connect to them...please help as I'm about to throttle my PC!!!

Which browser are you using. A similar situation occurs from time to time in Chrome and a reinstall seems to solve the problem.

I am using both Chrome and internet explorer. I'm also using Windows 8. WiFi is fine, it's just this hard wired PC.

Open the command prompt and type "ping google.co.uk" then press enter, what does it say?

I also sometimes experience this problem. somehow, I think that perhaps my IP address is hacked.
