Anyone help on this one (I dont care if its wrong, it might help).
Well, as the title states, I cannot connect from my computer. I am currently using another one in the house. I am running Win XP Home and I am tech savvy. There seem to be no symptoms which is why this is so strange.
I have all the correct settings to connect to my network (static IP) and IPConfig agrees.
I can ping loopback, myself, DNS and Google (and some other sites)
netdiag shows everything as fine (complains about DHCP not being there but i'm using static IP)
The only thing that is wrong is that when I open Firefox & IE, neither can connect to the internet (connection times out)
I can almost guarantee that it is not a physical problem because I played a LAN game today (UDP) and it worked fine.
It also isn't a problem with my ISP or routing because this computer obviously can connect to the internet.
I have tried resetting the TCP/IP protocol and I reset Winsock(have had a problem with it in the past)
The only thing I can think of that has changed is me running Windows Updates.
Any help or questions would be greatly appreciated. This is the first day I have had this problem so maybe with time it will go away. Thanks.
