I'm having problem with my internet connection. I can't access the websites which I normally do. I get this error from Google chrome 'Connection to [website] was interrupted'. But the websites I access on https are working fine. Also, other laptops connected to wifi does not experience this problem. I can't also access the router's setting page when I go to the router's ip address on the browser.

Double check that you don't have an HTTP proxy set.

The full navigation to those settings is a mouthful:

  1. Go to the Chrome right side menu, and choose Settings.
  2. Click on the "Show advanced settings" link.
  3. Under the "Network" heading, click the "Change Proxy Settings" button. Windows' "Internet Properties" dialog will open to the Connections page.
  4. Click on the "LAN settings" button.
  5. Now you can uncheck the box in the "Proxy server" section if you don't need a proxy (or if you do, enter the correct details)

Had the same problem, for me it WAS the proxy settings! –  uncovery Oct 18 '13 at 5:29

I finally got it working thanks to a friend. It wasn't an issue on proxies, router setup, connection settings, etc. but it was because of my anti virus. For some reason, it's blocking my connection to the internet. My antivirus is Avast free version by the way. I disabled it and now everything is working fine.
