Where i live the landlord has uncapped internet and said i could use it (as part of my rental) i connected a wifi usb adapter to my desktop machine. i loaded the wifi dongle drivers, then i connected to the wifi network. i tested it with my phone and it works. windows says i am connected to the network, i can ping google.com or any website for that matter, I have tried several sites. i can ping the router, but when i open ie9, or mozilla, or opera, it says im not connected. in ie i clicked on the "diagnose connection" button and it says there is no issue, it reloads the page and tells me im still not connected. i have no proxies, i removed all networking applications such as open vpn, yourfreedom etc and still no network access. Does anyone know what i can do? the wifi network itself is working (as per my phone being able to connect with the network carrier off and only using wifi)
i have done a tracrt google.com and it is successful, i have done a nslookup and it finds the router (billion) connected. in the networks tree i can see the home pc thats connected to the network and mine. so any suggestions would be appreciated.
Thanx in advance for any assistance.
