Problem: Internet is connected but only Skype works and browsers are dead. 

Step: Try to ping 74.125.224.244 and then ping Google.com. If the former works and the latter fails you have a dns problem.

Solution 1:

1) Click on Start --> In search box, type cmd --> Then "CMD" will be displayed in the search -->
Now right-click on "CMD" ---> Select "Run as administrator".

2) Now enter this command

netsh int ip reset resetlog.txt

Press "Enter".

3) Reboot your computer

Solution 2:

  1. Left click the network icon on the bottom right.
  2. Right click the connection you are using and select Status.
  3. Click Properties.
  4. Select Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4) and then click Properties.
  5. If the DNS is set to Obtain DNS server address automatically, then set it to Use the following DNS server addresses. Put any working DNS, such as 8.8.8.8 (Google's Public DNS) , and then click OK or Close until all of the windows you just opened are closed, and then try again.

If the DNS options are already set to Use the following DNS server addresses and there is a DNS server filled in, then change it to Obtain DNS server address automatically or put a known working DNS like 8.8.8.8 for the DNS server IP address.
