> Step 1: Ping localhost to make sure your network modules are fine.(most
cases will work)
step 2: Ping gateway seems to be 192.168.1.1 .... if ping is fine , then
whatever the problem is , its from your modem to the outside world or a dns
Step 3: ping any ip , like 126.96.36.199 or 188.8.131.52 (free dns servers) .........
if pings then your connection is fine .You are able to communicate with the
outside world.If doesnt ping check your modem config
Step 4.Set a different dns server like , 184.108.40.206 or opendns servers .
With these 4 steps you can first identify the problem .
Once you identify where the problem is , comp to modem or modem to outside
world or address translation or network modules ............ probably you
can post back and it will be easier to help you further
