Internet Explorer problem in accessing web pages

I am having problems with internet explorer on a Dell Inspiron 6000 laptop machine operating under Windows XP. At present, I am not able to access any web pages. i believe I have attempted many software solutions and have noticed on the machine itself that whilst the ethernet cable is plugged in, there is an orange LED and red LED being displayed at the same time on the LAN socket of the machine. What does this mean? Potential hardware problem? or does it mean nothing? Any help would be most appreciated.

Regards
MGN

Unplug the cable to see if the port that it plugs in still has lights on. If it does then that is one sign of a hardware problem. If the lights go off I would check your cable for any kinks, tears, or harsh bends. To be overall sure it's not the cable I would just replace it with another Ethernet cable in the house that you know that works.

If that fails then you may be in for a hardware failure. If all of your software solutions have failed then buying a new network interface card (NIC) may be your next step.

Internet explorer install program


Internet Explorer is included on every windows operating system. It should be on your computer unless you uninstalled it. But you can go to goggle and search for "download internet explorer" to download it and install it. Sometimes a virus can remove internet explorer from your desktop or all programs list. You can get it back by clicking Start/My Computer/Local Disk C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer Inside the internet explorer folder you will see the big blue E that was normally on your desktop or in your programs list. If you right click on it you can select the Send To option and select Desktop (create short cut). You can also right click on it and select Pin To Start Menu.

If your internet explorer is on you desktop or in your program list and when you click on it there seems to be a problem with it, then you might want to click Start/Control Panel/Internet Options. In the internet options window click on the Advanced tab then select the Reset option then click ok when it finishes. Then try running internet explorer again.

Reset the IE (internet explorer): Control panel -> Internet options -> Advanced -> "Reset" and/or "Restore advanced setting" . If you still have problem using IE, it is banned by your internet security/firewall software.

I have a Dell Inspiron 1525 that 2.5 years old. Lately after about 10 minutes or so, IE does not respond, hangs and goes to grey.


Those are the common issues with Internet Explorer. May I know the version of the Internet Explorer installed in the Computer? The best option is to reset the Internet Explorer and delete all the personal settings once. You can reset the Internet Explorer by following:
  • Open the Internet Explorer.
  • Click on Tools and select Properties.
  • In the Properties window, click on Advanced tab.
  • Now, click on reset and check Delete Personal settings option.
You can also change the Web browser to Firefox as it is more flexible compared to IE,

How do i change my default browser


To reset Internet Explorer settings
If you installed another Web browser after installing Internet Explorer and Internet Tools, some of your Internet Explorer settings may have changed. You can reset your Internet Explorer settings to their original defaults, including your home page and search pages, and choice of default browser, without changing your other browser's settings.
  1. On the Tools menu, click Internet Options.
  2. Click the Programs tab.
  3. Click the Reset Web Settings button.
BTW, I found these instructions by going to the 'help' button and clicked on 'Contents and Index' and typed in the keywords 'default browser'

Several resoning behind this one. One check your firewall setting, and make sure your wireless card have permission. Two, make sure that your mac filtering is turn off. Your wirless network has it own mac address and it is not in the router as to be aloud, it will block it. Three if your wireless network has a password, make sure you enter in right, it is case sensative. Four make certain that you have your wireless device is connected to the modem, or modem wireless combine. Finally, if you were running wired, try to clean the temperary ineternet filess off.
