I'm using a laptop in a dormitory and I was trying to go to a website, but it only shows texts and white background. When I check another website about the same thing happens, no pics just texts and black background. When I open my twitter I can't see my own profile photo as well as my other friends.

After I do a ping check it shows something like this:

packets transmitted   9

received              0

packet loss           100 %

time                  8000 ms

I'm using a direct connection (cable) and no wi-fi router. And I've just pinged google from my command prompt and it doesn't end even after I closed my command prompt. Is something wrong with my connection?

Since it isn't working, something must be wrong. – David Schwartz Jan 17 '14 at 8:36
What do you mean by the ping doesn't end? Did you set /t ? – Dave Jan 17 '14 at 8:40
@Alvin Laurentius: Is it possible to try a different network cable? – James Jan 17 '14 at 11:12

You are using tranparent proxy, usually it can transfer HTTP and FTP protocols. It's alright.

If you want to use ping (ICMP protocol) only one way - find your system administrator.
