My computer's Internet all of a sudden broke.

Recommended Posts

Hey, New here, Sorry If this is in the wrong spot.


This morning i go to turn my computer on to find out that i had no internet, 8 hours later of trying and i havent made an inch of progress. My computer is the only one in the house without internet both wirelessly and wired. I've rebooted the computer numerous times, rebooted the modem and router, tested 3 different ethernet cables, tried reconnecting wirelessly many different times, ran a hardware diagnostics through the f12 menu when the computer boots, and it says everything is all good, yet it still says that there is no internet connectionm. Someone plz help me because im completely out of ideas.


These are the system specs that i know i have,

My machine is a Dell Studio XPS 8100 which uses...


An intel I7 2.93 Ghz(i think)

Nvidia Geforce GTX 660 Ti

16 Gb of DDR3 Ram

and thats all i remember off the top of my head, but it should all be stock parts.

What O/S? Win 7?


Go to Start and type cmd
At the top you'll see the command console icon.
Right click it and choose: "Run as Administrator"
At the prompt, type: ipconfig /all
Hit the enter key on the keyboard

Find the ethernet connection listed for your active connection and let us know what is listed for:
IPv4 Address
Default Gateway

Which browser are you using to get online? Internet Explorer?

If so, let's reset IE.


Go to Start>Control Panel>Network and Internet>Internet Options

Click on the Advanced Tab (far right)

Under Reset Internet Explorer Settings, click "Reset"

Reboot the computer.


Any change?
