I've got a laptop which has a verified internet connection. I can ping www.google.co.uk and receive a response no problem. However IE, Chrome, Firefox, MSN messenger cannot connect to the internet.
I've tried the WINSOCK fix to no avail.
The internet connection is verified as working on another computer, with no problems browsing or telnet. I have tried connecting both the working and 'non-working' pcs together with a network cable with the working PC sharing its internet connection. Only the working PC can browse, with the same symptoms on the 'non-working' one. They can both ping each other, although I've yet to transfer files. The connection is a USB 3G modem.
