Hi, I have an older machine--a Toshiba laptop that's 4-5 years old running Vista Home Premium. Its connected via cable to a Comcast router. The comcast connection works but the machine won't browse or get email. It won't work on a wireless network either.
The machine says its connected to the internet. I can ping out. I worked with the Comcast folks and we have a DNS address.
We tried the main things, reboot, complete off and on, all of that. I took it to Starbucks and the wireless was not working. Also did a restore point to last night. It worked last night at home just fine.
