IPv6 Connectivity says "No Internet access" - Windows 7

    Question

  • Like the topic says.. IPv6 says No Internet, so I have no internet.

    it's a wired system, and was working lastnight. I don't know why this is the cause (and I did change it back, to no prevail) but I changed the "Workgroup" name to "Home" to connect to another computer, and that's when I noticed it stopped working. It still connects to other computers in my house, even after changing the name back to "Workgroup", but it will not connect to any website including the router it's plugged into. All other systems on the network (2 vista and 1 mac) works fine. I've checked the internet a bit but I've had no luck.

    Scratch that.. it connected to one computer lastnight (I do not have physical access to that one atm) and shows my laptop in the network, but asks for a user/password and says the "domain" is the name I gave my desktop computer.

  • please remove those firewall rules.
     
    open IE, tools, manage add-ons, and disable ALL add-ons. close IE and restart
    it. does the issue clear?
     
    if not
     
    to determine if something in your IE personal settings is the issue (before
    asking your to reset IE), you might want to create a new user with
    administrative privileges. then, log off YOUR account and log on to the new user
    account. does IE work or not?
     
    for a test site, let's use www.microsoft.com for all tests please.

  • It would be normal to see No Internet for the IPv6 connection UNLESS you are
    using IPv6 - native, dual stack, IPv6 tunnel etc.
     
    Try a system restore to a point where it was working.

  • while system restore has been working, it's continuing to have a problem. currently, i've needed to do a system restore 3 times in the last 24 hours. i've checked the scan affected programs button and it shows that it does very minimal and always ends up removing something different (one time was a program i added after the problem first happened, then a game.. also after the problem.. nothing ever before the problem)

    the most recent one actually removed the system restore i just did a couple hours ago and nothing else. i'm greatly regretting buying windows 7

  • i plugged in a USB wireless adapter and it did not help. i'm sure the adapter works, it's new and my father currently uses it with his vista desktop, the software installed and it found a signal.

    i can send/receive email, play mmorpg games, download software updates (via their programs, not their websites) but i cannot open any website, it just says "connection timed out" after about 5 seconds.

    i stopped trying system restore since all the restore points are just various times of today and it hasnt worked at all today

  • do a system restore to an OLDER checkpoint, when the desktop appears,
    immediately go into windows update and change the settings to download but
    select what to install. then, install updates one at a time until you find the
    culprit. when you do, uninstall it and HIDE it by right clicking, hide this
    update when it is offered again

  • i've ticked that and it doesn't seem to have any others.. i'm trying something else, regardless of if it works or not i'll post it here so you guys know what i've done

     

     

     

    this is what a person told me to try

     

    "Since this happens in two browsers but not in your email client, what does that tell us? It tells us that it is most likely one of two things that are common to WEB BROWSING but not to other network activities:

    DNS or TCP

    If it is DNS, that means your computer is unable to find websites by name because it cannot translate the name (URL) to the correct IP address.

    To test this:

    Open the Start Menu.
    In the Start Menu search box area type CMD and press Enter
    At the C:> Prompt, type PING GOOGLE.COM and press Enter

    If it replies Pinging Google.com [72.14.204.103] with 32 bytes of data then your DNS is working because it was able to lookup the IP for google.

    That leaves the TCP protocal, so we will reset the TCP Stack:
    Open the Start Menu.
    In the Start Menu search box area type CMD
    Press Ctrl-Shift-Enter keyboard shortcut to run Command Prompt as Administrator. Allow elevation request.
    Type NETSH INT IP RESET at the C:> Prompt, and then press Enter.
    Restart the computer.

    We can also rebuild the WINSOCK
    Press Ctrl-Shift-Enter keyboard shortcut to run Command Prompt as Administrator. Allow elevation request.
    Type "NETSH WINSOCK RESET"
    Restart the computer.


    Other things to check (But less likely)
    Check your firewall and make sure port 80 has not been blocked.
    See if you can browse by IP rather than by URL
    See if you can browse by URL to sites that begin with HTTPS rather than HTTP, like HTTPS://Paypal.com
    See if you can browse while in Safe Mode with Networking

    Finally, use MSCONFIG and disable all startup programs to make sure some third party AV isn't blocking you. Also in MSCONFIG click the SERVICES Tab, and hide all MS services, then disable all non-MS Services, again to make sure that no third party application is blocking your internet access"

     

    i can ping google.com, googles IP and paypals IP just fine but paypal.com and aol.com were timed out as well as aols IP

    i checked firewall settings and they seemed fine, but i disabled them completely just in case i missed something. i also turned off all services that were not hidden from the non-MS checkbox and the problem persists

    i've also scanned for virii/spyware/malware with adaware, avg, spybot, malwarebytes and windows defender

  • i previously has IE uninstalled so i reinstalled it and did as you said, but that didn't change anything

    however, i created a new admin account and that is working. i checked a few various websites (both http and https) and they came up fine. i'm currently downloading updates for windows 7 with it (which wasn't working before either)

     

    is there a way to figure out what caused it? i don't have a whole lot of stuff on the other account so it wouldnt take long to delete that one and just use this new one. but if one of the programs i use was the issue then i'm just going to end up doing it again when i transfer my programs

    Monday, July 05, 2010 4:34 PM
  • what do you mean you had uninstalled IE on Windows 7? how did you uninstall it?
     
    what programs did you install?

  • we have the same issue with IPv4.  All our computers have a yellow alert over the network icon, saying no internet access - but we do have internet access.

    route print says a have a netmask of 0.0.0.0, when I route delete 0.0.0.0 and restart - it doesn't fix the issue.


    Thanks!
