Hi all,
My internet stopped working on my wired PC a couple of months ago, while laptop was still working fine. Since, I went ahead and changed the Network Card hoping that would fix the problem. Well, it didn't.
I have a Belkin G router connected to Comcast internet, a vonage machine, and HP windows XP PC (laptop is wireless). I've tried the laptop with the same wires and connections as the PC and the laptop receives internet and lets me surf different websites and log on to skype, PC doesn't.
I've checked the IP address, Gateway, etc... and PC seems to be connecting fine. Pinged router's IP, laptop's IP and even yahoo.com and get the four ping responses. But still, I cannot view any websites. I've even ran a sockfix program, nothing. I also did a catalog reset, nothing.
Anything else to do? other than sending the PC to the rubbish bin!??

1. Check the internet browsers proxy settings (should set to no proxy)
2. At the PC, try ping google.com (did it work)?
3. Post the output of ipconfig /all of your PC, that's not working.

Thanks for your response. I am not very good at this so bare with me! Proxy server is set to no proxy server. Google ping worked (I think) and here is my ipconfig /all text:

Totally random search took me to a forum where I read ppl were having the same problem and that uninstralling their Norton was fixing the problem. So I uninstalled Norton, and long and behold, my websites are now loading...
We'll see if it lasts, but for now, I'm accessing the connection!!
THANKS for the help!

Ok, everthing looks good and under this circumstances should work, but it doesn't, right.

So next, what you can try is to disable the Wired AutoConfig service. Then reboot and check, whether it works or not.

If this doesn't solve your problem, you should set the Wired AutoConfig to it's default startup type (manual) and you have to check your system for viruses.
