So I logged on today, and realized Teamspeak was not connecting to the server I log on to every day. I had also realized Steam was having a tough time connecting to the internet, and I have no idea what's happening.

  • I tried restarting my router with the expectation it would work, it didn't.
  • I have no new antivirus programs
  • Firewall was turned off for about 2 hours, I tried again and no result.
  • Pinged Google.com, got an average approximate round trip time of 65 ms.

No errors were given when trying to connect to Steam or Teamspeak.

The funny thing about this is that all functions are carried out normally that require internet. Everything else that requires internet works just fine.

I have another machine (a laptop) that runs Teamspeak and Steam just fine, so I'm guessing it could be something to do with the connection specifically on my primary machine?

Edit (3/4/15): Tried using Windows troubleshooting and it couldn't identify that anything was wrong. I have absolutely no clue what to do.

    These are two wholly unrelated things. You haven't provided enough information to answer what your problem is. That's because it requires a lot of back and forth and troubleshooting. This question is not suited for this site.

  • Does Steam/Teamspeak throw an error message or show an error code at all? Can you access the internet normally, by hitting Google or other big sites? What sort of lag time are you getting when running a ping request to google.com or other big sites? Do you have any new antivirus programs, firewall settings or other programs that may interfere with your connection? Sorry, we're gonna need a lot more info to go on before we can help you diagnose the problem

  • No error codes at all from Teamspeak or Steam, and no antivirus programs that are new. Firewall doesn't interfere with any other incoming or outgoing connections, and I turned it off, tried, still no result. Average ping time was 65 ms, 4 packets sent, 4 received, none lost. Hope that's good enough info. Commented Mar 3, 2015 at 23:08
  • @MustafaAhmedani - Thanks for that, I've voted to reopen your question. This might be a silly thing to ask, but have you restarted your primary machine recently? There's potentially a pending update or something that's stuffing it up.

  • @Robotnik yep, three times yesterday, twice today. No clue. No driver updates (according to Windows)... Commented Mar 4, 2015 at 1:33

Assuming windows, based on your description.

Try the following:

  1. Click on the Start menu/screen, click search.
  2. Type: CMD
  3. Right-Click Command Prompt and click Run as Administrator
  4. Confirm the UAC prompt when it comes up.
  5. When you have an Administrator: Command Prompt window, Execute:
    • ipconfig /flushdns
  6. Click Restart from the Start menu/screen and perform a FULL reboot.

I'd had the same issue:

I found out that a day before I logged in, my IP Address and Firewall level was set to high. Upon restarting, my modem the issue occurred. Changing the level back is what resolved it for me.
