Local Internet Connection 2 is working but no web access

Ask a question
Internet access or Web access is a service which gives access to the global system of inter-connected computer networks known as the internet. A Local area network (LAN) provides networking capability to a group of computer systems in a close proximity to each other. If you are unable to access the web even though the local internet connection 2 is working, you need to enter the command ipconfig/all in the command prompt. This command is used to find your IP address, Subnet mask and default gateway. If you are working on Internet Explorer, make sure that all the options are unchecked in the LAN settings. If you are using FireFox, select the No Proxy option in the Advanced settings.
