Internet only works in browser...
« on: September 20, 2013, 12:08:09 PM »
Hello Shane,
I hope you can help me again because I have a crappy problem!
A couple of days ago (I do not know if it was coincedence) I had a windows update and I did it and since then this is happening:
-I cannot play any online games BUT internet does work in my browsers (Games like Blacklight Retribution, Minecraft, Planetside 2 etc).
-Skype also doesnt work my freinds say my voice does ii....oo...aa, get the point?

I dont know if it might be my internet usb stick that has just died a little because I also have not been having full internet signal since then. Or its something else I dont know. I also reseted the router to factory settings, made my PC go back to settings before the windows update but still no succes. The weird thing is it also works fine on my phone and my moms laptop AND by dads tablet. Just nothing works and its horrible I mean even steam doesnt work lol.
So please see if youre genious skills can help me :D
Thanks alot,
Declan! :D

If it is the modem that went bad then the way to test that is to see if any other computer has the same problem.

If the other systems work fine then it is something on your system, such as firewall software blocking things, if the other systems have the same problem then you know it is the modem :wink:

A lot of Antiviruses have firewalls in them and users sometimes dont realize that, what AV do you have installed?
