Cannot browse net, but Ping OK
Got a laptop here, can ping out to my router OK, and can also ping out to any internet site you like (tried bbc.co.uk edugeek.net and google) but as soon as you try and access any site through Internet Explorer 8 or Firefox Portable it just says that the connection is unavailable.
Vista reports I'm connected to the Internet OK, can access everything perfectly OK with the other machines connected to the router, so it's clearly just this laptop.
Tried restarting, "repairing" the connection, disabling all firewalls in sight...but still nothing.
Found what looked like a fix in the MS KB but that was for Beta versions of Vista/Longhorn.
Any suggestions welcome!
