Hello,
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 à 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???

Thanks,
Sean

ps: im on the roomates computer right now. (mac)

assuming you have Windows - go to START and Run and type in the following commands

ipconfig /release
ipconfig /all
ipconfig /flushdns
ipconfig /renew


netsh int ip set dns
netsh winsock reset

I tried the commands and the network still does not work. I could still access google under the ip address, but not through www.google.com. I'm not sure what else to do. I have even tried to use winsockxpfix.exe that I saw on other posts and it still won't work. Any ideas?

Thanks,
Sean

you might try theses commands

netsh int ip set dns
netsh winsock reset

OR you could get a new USB wireless adapter. That fixed things for me.

Thanks,
I tried those commands. My wireless adapter isn't usb, I will try that when I get a chance. But I did directly hook the computer up to the broadband for my cable internet and ensured it was using that connection. It still only had success with ip addresses. Is there anything else that could be wrong? Is there anything else I could attempt?

Thanks!

I got a new wireless adapter. It connected to the internet fine and was good to go...but I am still having the same problem. ip addresses ping just fine but not when I use regular addresses. What should I try next?

You Could Also Follow These Steps :-
  • 1.Go to control panel.
  • 2. Then Network and Internet
  • 3.Then click on Network and Sharing Center.
  • 4.Then click change adapter settings
  • 5.Then double click on the adapter you use for your internet.
  • 6.click properties, then double click internet protocol version 4 (TCP/IPv4)
  • 7.Then click on the circle where you see "Use the following DNS server addresses"
  • 8. Put 8.8.8.8 in the box that says perferred DNS server.


That will make Google your default DNS server.

Hope it resovles your problem.

Thank you so much. I did this and realized my preferred DNS server was my PlayStation 3's IP address. So this helped me. Thank you!

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.

Didn't find the answer you are looking for?

Ask a question
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.

Thanks

Then its probably just outages of service in your area. Your internet provider will tell you this.

What operating system are you using and did you try typing in the Run box: ipconfig /release (press enter) then type: ipconfig /all (again press enter) then type: ipconfig /flushdns

If that doesn't work, right click My Computer, open device manager if anything has a red or yellow symbol if it does write it here.

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

"http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/42776-extract-files-windows-7-installation-dvd.html"

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

"http://www.vistax64.com/tutorials/67717-take-ownership-file.html"

and followed Option One for speed. You can follow the option that suits you better. (Make sure to replace and not keep a copy of the corrupted files when prompted.)

Once those DHCP dependencies drivers are replaced with the right fresh ones and the system is rebooted, your machine is set to go.

Preventive Maintenance Note: Once your system is up and running, create a restore point.

Good luck.

I'm having the same issue on one system, Windows 7 Pro 64 bit, however, when I open my device manager nothing's prompting that it's corrupt or missing. I'll try your method and see if it helps, otherwise, I'm stuck with no internet yet, I can still access the files on the network. Unfortunately, this all happened after an update, thus the restore point, is set at the update time and date nothing before it. I removed the updates still can't connect.
