Network Connectivity Status Indicator

I used to get local access only about once a day but after I installed
avast 5 it happens all the time. I have tried alot of different fixes
that people have suggested on different forums but nothing works. I have
tried to ping these two addresses: 207.46.131.206 and 131.107.255.255
that have to do with the Network Connectivity Status Indicator but both
of them time out. Can someone try to ping these two addresses and see if
they time out for you? Could this maybe the problem causing the local
access only? The only other thing I can think of maybe causing this is
my at&t motorola 2210-02 dsl modem. Can anyone help me out here?

Re: Network Connectivity Status Indicator
Ping those two IP addresses timeout an local access only may not be related.
Can you access the Internet? Post the result of ipconfig /all may help.

Re: Network Connectivity Status Indicator
Hi
Try to uninstall Avast. If it helps, then find out if you are configuring
Avast correctly, or get rid of it all together.
For Anti Virus/Spyware you can use the Free and excellent Microsoft Product.

If you need a 3rd party Firewall, this is free and very good,
