I have an issue (surprise surprise) i was hoping that someone could help me with... I have a Netgear router that has connected to it a PC via Ethernet. It also has a laptop connected wirelessly. Both computers are running XP SP3. The laptop is fine and works well, however the PC is unable to browse the internet over Port 80. I can connect via https fine. Emails work fine, just not standard port 80. I have windows firewall enabled and run AVG 8. With both disabled, the problem is still there. I believe the router is fine, though i have reset it, as i can connect fine via the laptop. I cant update AVG as this will not connect (I believe it updates on port 80 also though this is a guess) but have done a full scan on the PC with the latest definitions that I have. No problems found apart from the usual cookies. The plot thickens when I can ping the default gateway ok from the PC, and can ping the laptop, but I cant use IE to load the Netgear page to configure the router from the PC, I can from the laptop. I thought it might be a winsock problem and used the repair tool for that, didnít resolve the issue. I have also checked out the hostnames file and that seems fine. Running chkdsk /r from the windows recovery console found a problem but did not resolve the issue. From here I am lost. The only thing I can think of is a virus/malware but without being able to update AVG I cant really confirm this. Unless someone can suggest a solution, I will be forced to reload Windows XP.

need to think more, sorry.....HTTS: is working fine. open a command prompt window type NETSTAT -a -n is it "LISTENING" on port 80 (near the top) ? Tallon41 [edit: if you boot into "safe mode with networking" can you reach the Netgear Router using IP address then ? ]

I have just run the netstat and port 80 seems to be missing from the list. Not to sure what to from here, i am at the limit of my abilities. The Netstat shows about 30 enteries, some TCP some UDP, some listening, some established. I dnt see :80 anywhere on the list. Safe Mode with Networking...... works a treat. Port 80 (http) access i have. Yahoooo ok, so what is difference between safe mode and normal, where do i look? Thanks for your help in advance

I am having the same problem as described by Harvey_nz. I however will not be to embarrassed for someone to tell me the resolution as it has been a pain in the rear. I also have AVG and have cycled firewall on/off, disabled AVG, uninstalled IE and reinstalled (using system cached install so definately not a clean install). XP SP3 was installed and I removed it thinking something would revert back to a working condition but to no avail. Any suggestions would be grateful and Harvey_nz, you may share your wisdom with the knowledge that I am unable to figure it out 8)

AVG has a plugin to IE, shown as an icon bar, which has 2 buttons on it (im doing this from memory) one of these is called "web shield" or similar, this was turned on. As soon as i turned it off it worked.. Think this is what it was called ..... http://www.avg.com/a...ents#web-shield
