    Cannot display web pages but torrents downloading at optimal speed

    I've been experiencing an issue regarding opening up any web pages whatsoever for almost a week now. I have tried everything I can possibly think of, contacted my ISP, reset my router, updated the router firmware, tested my connection with a different router, run cmd to flush dns, reset log, you name it. Every device I connect via WiFi doesn't work either but the strangest of all is that my torrents downloads at its optimal download speed. I cannot understand what the problem is. I did however test my router on a friend's adsl line and it gave the same problem whereas he's router wasn't giving any problems. I then decided that my router was at fault but then I did a test with a spare router to find the same problem - shows that there is a Internet connection, I am able to connect any device via WiFi and make use of my social networks but as far as browsing the web is concerned, whether it be on my desktop, laptop, phone, I just am not able to do that. My Antivirus is unable to update, my windows isn't updating, nothing works except for being able to use Facebook and twitter and whatsapp. Please help me figure this out, is it a router problem because I was concerned that 2 different routers could have the ecat same problem.

    Check the DNS setting on your router. If auto doesn't work, set it manually to the DNS server of your ISP (for example OTENET in Greece has

    Try using OpenDNS address

    Did this fix it for you or did you found a way to fix your issue?
