I have been working on this for a while now. I have a strong wireless connection to my network. But when I try to open a page on firefox it says I have no internet connection. I have followed all of the linksys adviser steps but continue to be stopped by "no internet connection". My roomates computer is connecting to the same network and working fine. I followed all of the steps from another forum "post http://ccm.net/forum/affich 10833 modem is connected but not the internet " until tjmartineau, on Saturday 20 September 2008 ÃƒÂ 18:55:40. I CAN open google on the firefox with an ip address but I CANNOT open anything with a regular address. The other post did not address the DNS issue. I have a weird packets recieved vs sent too : recieved: 2966 sent: 3661. What is wrong with my computer/internet/router/whatever???
I had the same problem and the above suggestion by giant leap fixed it... sort of... I entered the numbers in the tcp/ip settings and they did not work. However when I removed them by clicking on the "retrieve address automatically" buttons, everything started to work. I know they were selected before but apparantly needed to un-checked then checked again for them to take affect.
Im having the same issue. 'DNS Probe finished no internet'. I'm running windows 7. I've tried almost everything I have read and know. Reset ip address, flush dns, reset router & machine, change network adapter dns settings, update drivers. The suggestions of ipconfig and netsh...set dns did NOT apply to this case. The problem affects chrome, ie, firefox and is the same whether wireless or connected via cable. And the problem is only on one machine. All other devices are connecting & browsing no problem.
If anyone has a solution outside of those I have mentioned PLEASE let me know.
i have a same problems too...that just like the "DNS_PROBE_NO_INTERNET" suddenly came out and I have tried the ways eyeryone suggested here to fix it but no use. I need to close all the browsers and it will return as normal, Need helps please.....
I have Windows 7 Professional 64-bit and had the same "No Internet Access" problem through my wireless connection on my laptop. I read so many posts and websites regarding the issue, and it all boiled down to corrupted DHCP Client Service Dependencies drivers, namely afd.sys and http.sys, that prevented it from starting and connecting properly to the DNS server and obtaining a dynamic IP Address from the DHCP server. AFD --Ancillary Function Driver-- for Winsock is a core driver for networking and Internet communications that gets targeted by malware programs, and when anti-virus programs remove malware, AFD gets corrupted, and maybe NetIO Legacy Support drivers, e.g. TCP/IP driver, namely tcpip.sys. It is a common problem.
CAUTION: Before you start altering your system, please make sure to create a restore point.
Here is the fix:
Go to Device Manager and click on View on the main menu and Show hidden devices on the drop-down menu. Then, in the pane below the main menu, go to the Non-Plug and Play Drivers list and expand it. Look for any driver that is flagged for problems. I had afd.sys and http.sys flagged as they were corrupted.
You need to replace those corrupted drivers in the "C:\windows\systems32\drivers\" folder with fresh ones. I extracted mine from Windows 7 Professional 64-bit Installation DVD--I found a great tutorial on how to extract files from Windows 7 Installation DVD on
Note: It is crucial to obtain/extract the corresponding drivers to your type of Windows 7 Installation, mine is Professional. It is all explained in the above referenced tutorial. You will need to "take ownership" to replace the drivers--I found a great tutorial on how to take ownership in Windows 7 on
