Here is the scenario: The computer connects to my network, the DHCP server asigns to it an IP address, and sets every thing right. I can ping, trace and it resolves DNS.
Here is the problem: I can`t get any application to access the internet (e.g.: IE, Firefox), and when working with another computer each time I do a ping to it, I get a request time out message. I tried tracing the computer through my network and I'm getting the same result.
Computer's Operating System: Windows Vista Starter Edition.
Network: Connecting through a wireless router or connecting an UTP cable to it (Doesn't matter I get the same exact result).
DHCP Server: It is set up to wrok with a maximum of 20 connections. At the moment there are less than 5 computers connected to the network. Firewall: Within my network there are no firewalls working. Router restrictions: I didn't set my router to restrict access (e.g. Mac address restriction).
So far, all I can think of is that it's a problem with the operating system. It seems to me that the network connection works fine.
Here is some update: I found out when this started, just after removing Symantec's Live Update. Still not knowing how to resolve it. Apparently, Norton's desintallation tool, messes with the dns configuration. I found a work around that worked, but I still couldn't find the real reason of my problem.
Thanks in advance.
