Need help with Website found waiting for repl

Specs: Windows XP
We have a peer-to-peer network at work than is connected using network cables. Now some office computers are accessing the internet OK while others are slow or have no connection at all. Those pc that have no access to the internet can connect to the network but not the internet. Pinging the default gate way replies ok. pinging google also replied. Doing power cycle also is not helping. Browser read "website found, waiting for reply...." and hangs there.

Probably it's caused by domain name resolving failure, test to configure following free DNS servers provided by Google, after that try again.

Scan the computer by using antivirus/anti-malware with latest signature file too, just want to ensure it's not caused by worm/virus.

Hope this helps.

If you can Ping Google then your DNS is working. If you can not use the browser then either the browser is not configured right (probably setup for dial up) or you have a virus (as suggested above) that has hijacked the browser. I would try installing another browser like Google Crome, Firefox or something, to verify this.

Before you install or change anything on any computer, let's first gather some information.

On both a working computer, and one that isn't working, open a command prompt window (ie: Start >> Run >> type cmd and hit Enter) and perform the following command in it:

ipconfig /all

Now post the output of both (appropriately labeled) in a response in here. For information on how to copy/paste the output of a command prompt window click on my name above in my response and read my "how-to" guide titled, "Post the output of ipconfig (version 2)" and follow the steps.

It matters not how straight the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate;
I am the captain of my soul.

thank you all for your replies.

we are using the D-link 10/100 mbps switches to connect. I was thinking if upgrading to gigabit switches. Is there a possibility this will help improve internet and network connection. Think it will require a lot of upgrades on computers and the cabling itself.
That is for the LAN.

Yep, replacing 10/100 mbps switches to Gigabit switch will improve performance on LAN network, but your Internet connection will not be affected by this change. The performance of Internet is mainly depended on the Internet package you subscribed.
