    Can't use Internet but I can ping..


    I use sysprep tool to reset my computer. And I successfully boot into windows desktop. The problem is that I can't use Internet , chrome ,IE, Skype ,all programs are offline ,but the strange part is ,I can ping Windows 8 Forum ,which means my network and dns is ok.
    And I can't even go to 192.168.0.1. But my router is of course good because my iPad can connect to internet.

    Call up a Admin Command Prompt to try flushing your DNS with
    Code:
    ipconfig /flushdns
    ...Then reset the DNS Resolver cache with
    Code:
    net start dnscache

    After 4 times of restarting, it's ok now. I don't know why.
    actually , since I can ping domain of many websites, I think my DNS should be fine.
    Anyway, thanks

    I get the same problem sometimes too(using a Vodafone mobile broadband dongle) and try dns flush-reset firewall..etc. sometimes it works sometimes not, probably a placebo effect and the problem lies temporarley with the ISP.
