只能上Google???!!!

今晚切换回windows,打开浏览器,结果奇怪的事情就发生了,主页Google显示正常,Gmail,Google Play都可以访问,但是其他所有网站却都挂了。想想身在天朝,一般都是反过来的才对吧。于是开始检查……

1. Ping百度,OK。上QQ,也可以。连接一切正常,数据包一样在走,但是无论有线还是无线都不能访问网站。

2. 百思不得其解,突然想到学校里是有IPV6的网络环境的,能上Google是不是因为这个原因?!又找了几个v6地址尝试,果然就是。但是为什么呢?

3. 突然想到了一个问题,就是前几天装了virtualbox,然后里面有一个ubuntu,装了两块虚拟网卡用来实验,会不会是这个导致了windows网络配置的问题,于是打开虚拟机,结果ubuntu却能上网!!这下找到问题所在了,看来是virtualbox的原因。

4. 首先想到的是禁用虚拟网卡,没用。然后删除镜像,还是没用,然后删除虚拟网络,还是没用,然后卸载virtualbox,还是没用……看来是造成永久性伤害了……

5. 由于手头没有wireshark之类的抓包工具,然后上网搜索,发现别人的问题基本上和我的是相反的方向。于是只能放手一搏试试,决定重置winsock。以管理员身份运行cmd,然后netsh winsock reset。重启,居然好了……

总结:虽然找到了问题所在,即virtualbox的虚拟网卡,但是由于没有工具还是没能找到问题的真正所在,不过reset winsock确实是一个比较靠谱的方法,一般在windows中遇到奇怪的网络问题都可以尝试一下
