don't use IExplorer, use firefox or chrome. You do not need to know any proxy. Stay out of Lan settings. Make sure your ethernet cord is plugged in tight on both ends. That cord should show a green light when you look directly into the ethernet jack on your computer. You should be good to go then and connect to the internet.
If you do not know how to deselect some of the factory defaults before connecting it to the internet, you will be setting yourself up to get hijacked or worse. Have someone who knows a bit about PCs to help you.
It sounds to me that the default IP address for router has been changed or your laptop/computer IP address is not within 192.168.1.x network. Here is what you can do:-
-Check you cable connection to make sure it plugged in.
-check your laptop/computer IP address by going to
Start-run-key in CMD and click on CMD (assuming you are using vista or 7)
you should see a black screen after that.
Then keyin IPconfig and click Enter
look for IP address and let me know what are the number and we can start troubleshooting from here.
Do you have a wireless access point that you are trying to connect to? If so, (assuming the AP belongs to you) it's the same key that you use to access the internet on your laptop. Could be ur phone number or could be the mac address of the router.
If I understand you correctly. You cannot connect wirelessly at work with you laptop but you can connect with your desktop. 1. The laptop has to be allowed on the network by either MAC address ( Media Access Control) number or an IP (Internet protocol) address. 2. This is done by the administrator of the router. To allow the device to be seen by the router and and assign an IP address to that device to gain access to the server and be able to connect to the Internet. 3. At work you will have an IT administrator that will give a password/ user name to allow you to obtain access to the company server. I hope this helps. Have a great day.
if u know the IP address of your router and ur servicve provider's server IP then ping it....
go to Start/Run
in the next window type this
ping 188.8.131.52 -t (the number is the IP address of ur router...replace the number written by me with ur router number)
ping 184.108.40.206 -t (the number here is the IP address of internet service provider server...replace the number written by me with one for your internet service provider server IP address)
the ping window will be a DOS window with responce from the respective server/router with milli seconds mentioned as responce time....if that comes then ur connection is ok
for further info check with ur internet provider

In order to really test your modem you need to call more than just 1 (your ISP's) number. If you are not getting 56k connects, you should try your modem with other local/toll/toll-free numbers. This is a list of some toll-free numbers, the 3Com "Line Test" Number (a toll-call), and links to various ISP local access number listings Setting up an account with a Free ISP is another way you can test and isolate modem/ISP problems. 1-847-330-2780 - USR Linetest number - this is a toll call; if you log-in as "Line Test" with a v.34 modem, it will attempt to determine if your line will support 56k connections.
