    Internet Problem


    Hello,
    I have just upgraded from windows 7 to Windows Eight Consumer Preview, And my internet connection is not working properly.
    I can only browse the internet via the Internet explorer 10 and can not use any other app or browser ( including ie9, chrome, firefox, safari ) to browse the net.
    Plus, I can not openmy modem config page which is, 192.168.1.1 but I can ping it at the command prompt sucsessfully.
    Please help me out, I need the internet working for other softwares also !

    Check proxy settings in the browsers. I.E. controls itself and system and every other browser is specific to itself.
