Two days ago, I "uninstalled" Firefox 8 and installed Firefox 10.0.2.
Since then, I'm unable to browse the internet either on IE or Firefox.
However, I'm able to download and seed torrents in utorrent.
I've had this issue few months ago but it resolved itself within a few hours.
I'm using Windows 7 Home Basic.

I would start Internet Explorer and let it fix the problem.

I looks like you have a problem with DNS not working.

Good Luck
xpcman, I tried checking if it's a DNS issue. Apparently it isn't.

Also, in the Local Area Connection Status window,
IPv4 Connectivity: Internet
IPv6 Connectivity: No internet access

Okay, I found out that I can browse the internet by entering IP addresses only.

sundar7701, I will try out your method.

Didn't find the answer you are looking for?

From your logs i could see that you have manually assigned DNS address of BSNL

what happens when you change it to assign it automatically?

Click Start, click Control Panel, click Network and Internet Connections, and then click Network Connections.
Right-click the network connection that you want to configure, and then click Properties.
On the General tab (for a local area connection), or the Networking tab (for all other connections), click Internet Protocol (TCP/IP), and then click Properties.

select assign ip and dns automatically options

can you browse now
Those settings have already been set according to what you've mentioned. Still not working.

I apologize for the late reply.

sundar7701, The day you posted your last post, my internet began working on its own.

Any guesses what and where the issue may have lied?

Nevertheless, I thank you all for your help.
