pc can't connect to internet, but tablet can

Postby BIGMAN131307 » Thu Aug 03, 2017 12:42 am

For the past hour or so I've been trying to troubleshoot this problem.

It started when I was searching the net like usual. In the background I was running F@H like usual. When ever I need to search a lot I will pause it. Because it tends to stall my browser: SeaMonkey
If that doesn't fix the issue, I'll close down my browser. Once the resources level off, I restart it.
This the browser failed to return. I usually keep 4-6 tabs open for confidence. But they were all gone.
Now my browser won't connect. It shows a connect, but nothing is loading. I am typing this post using my tablet that is connecting. I tried resetting the modem, router, antivirus scans. All with no luck.

I plan to try my ISP asap, because this issue happened before. That time I needed to get another modem from them. A forget if my tablet connected when it happened then.

How can I fix this issue? I need to find out asap, so I can figure out if I need another modem, or a PC setting
Is messed up.

Trouble shooting a PC using a tablet is a real pita, but its this or nothing.

After a bit of searching I found a fix:

Start / CMD
Run as Admin

ipconfig /flushdns
ipconfig /registerdns
netsh windsock reset
netsh int ip reset reset.log

restart PC

Internet works on PC again.


Don't know what happened before, just glad it's fixed. :)

what happened? windows. that happened. for no apparent reason it will cr*p itself in almost any area after some time. frequent reboots will help. if you try to keep your system up to date that will happen automatically :P
