Problems connecting to the internet..


Recommended Posts

I am a computer technician at computer co op in jackson, i have a A+ and CCNA certification and am completely stumped. I have 2 different customer PC's here that cannot connect to the internet in normal mode. I have completely uninstalled firewalls, disabled windows firewall and have AVG Free 8.0 running on each. They are completely virus/rootkit/spyware free. In normal windows I can ping, tracert, nslookup from cmd prompt with no problems.. even browse the local network, however no programs can connect its like a firewall or something is blocking them. However when I boot to safe-mode with networking I can connect with no problems at all, ie + firefox.

Any ideas?

Had the same problem on a PC i was looking at for a CMR

Took there HD out and Rebuilt it with windows XP

Seems like a HW setting changed that they done, poss on NIC

CMR told me afterwards that he had been messing about with all kinds of settings
