Specs: Windows 7 starter
I have a Lenovo ideapad S 10-3s, need urgent help for a strange problem:
1. Google home page opens
2. links hosted by google on its homepage opens, eg. orkut, gmail, news etc
3. clicks on other links make the computer hang.
4. I have connected this computer through a netgear wireless router. The strange thing is my other two laptops are able to access all Internet pages with the same netgear router.
5. I even connected my modem directly to the notebook through LAN, it still does not work.
6. I took the notebook to Lenovo svc center where it works fine.
7. The notebook was formatted, softwares (Windows 7 starter as OS) re-loaded. The problem persists.
This shocked the service center people as well. Experts, please help me!

What browser did you use & did you try a different browser?

Do you have Norton or any of those other worthless programs running? If so, uninstall them. Disable windows firewall & check the restrictions in IE itself.

i guess the problem is with local dns cache or local LMhost file
Also check your tcp/ip settings.

Only Google Works Solved

I am not an expert but I fixed it myself. Its your ip's encryption.

I had a similar problem with a new laptop when I wanted to use wireless on my home network. The backdoor security settings on my new laptop (that I didn't know how to fix) kept me from browsing any other site but google..

Call your internet service provider, they will give you instructions to gain online access to your modems wireless settings through your ip address.

You'll have to use a computer that is ethernet connected to the internet if you're still having this problem.

Change your wireless settings from a WPA to a WEP encryption.

Change your password or key to something only you know.

Save the settings. You may have to change your home network setting in the control panel if you have one setup. Just remove the old ones and add the new one.


This worked for me. Hope it works for you
