I am trying to help a friend with no http traffic challenging problem and need some help please. I have been in IT industry for for some time but this one seems to be challenging because, even the ISP is trilled by this. The POTS line was faulty so Telecom called in a Chorus tech who has done a basic inspection no my modem and home connection and thinks everything should be fine on their end and told the ISP that its their problem.
Problem: no http traffic through the browsers.
Here is what we have tried to trouble shoot:
usual Ping + ping the DNS server - works
ping with large packet – ping –l 1492 126.96.36.199 - works
Ipconfig/all – check the DNS server being issueed
telnet - works
modem have tried two different type of modem
PPP authentication - the ISP is seeing us logging into their network
DSL - all connected up and stable
Browsers - 2 different browsers have been tried - no luck
