|Hi, I have several computers and a game console on my network. All the computers except one are wireless, including the game console. The wired computer is a desktop PC.|
For some reason, after I just finished doing some driver updates (none relating to the network card), this weired error occured. I am able to connect to my router (DIR-655) and see all other devices that are connected to the network; Windows even shows that the desktop pc is fully connected to the network. But unfortunately when I try to use any of my internet browsers or even try updating any of my installed softwares, I keep getting errors which are simillar to the following basic one.
"Unable to connect to Server, Check your internet connection"
So I tried the following in attempts to fix this error.
1.) Powercycling my router n modem. No luck
2.) Disabling all firewalls. No luck
3.) Tried a ping test from one of my computers that are working good (also my router) to this wired desktop PC, the ping test stated that the host is not responding.
4.) I checked all my dns settings on this desktop pc and compared it with one of my good working computers, and they are all the same.
5.) I checked my routers security settings (including the Network Filter rules) and none of them appeared to be wrong.
6.) Went through my router log, nothing appears to be suspicious, only shows my computers communincating (no errors besides the ping failures to this desktop PC)
7.) Trie Tcp/Ip reset and Winsock2 recovery, still no luck
No clue how they do it, but I belief this might have something to do with the hackers in my neighborhood I have been noticing connecting to my network.
Please HELP!! This is really confusing me, what other method can I use to attempt solving this issue?
