    Except Chrome, all browsers showing no internet access


    I'm having a weird problem.
    I got a broadband connection few days before and whenever I use that connection to access internet, Chrome alone works. Firefox, IE, Torrent application and all the Windows 8 apps are showing "unable to connect to internet".
    I tried a lot of cmds like" dns flush, resetting connection etc" but nothing worked.
    I even refreshed the whole OS, but the issue persists.
    Please help me to resolve this problem!

    No. But I tried using Ubuntu. Everything is fine there. It's very strange.
