Fixed wireless internet, now browser says cannot display webpage

I finally got my r50e connected to the wireless internet network but my moment of triumph was very short-lived as, now, the browser says it cannot display webpage. Computer tells me to reset router when I run a diagnostic but even when I do it still isnt working and all other computers in the house are completely fine with the network. Any suggestions?

If the other computers in the house are using the same router switch you computer line to one of the jacks that are working,and see if that solves the problem. If not then run the IP software,if available,on your laptop.

Try updating the driver for your wireless card first. If that doesn't work check with the router company to make sure your card is compatible with their router. When I buily my new computer my ethernet card needed swapped as the onboard driver was not compatible with my router.

Hi Sir, you might be having a trouble with your proxy. Try going to control Panel > Internet Options > Connections > Lan Settings and uncheck use proxy server...

FOr mozilla.. Try going to tools >>Options > Advance > network > Settings > Click No Proxy.

If that doesn't work.. You might have a virus in your computer. Try scanning it using malwarebytes. download it from malwarebytes.org

My computer keeps saying ''webpage cannot be displayed''


Hello monkie_gurl2,

This usually happens when the browser cannot access the internet. Make sure your firewall settings allow the browser to access the internet. Also, make sure you are connecting to the internet ok by checking email. And internet explorer can help diagnose the problem by selecting the 'Tools' menu option and then selecting 'Diagnose Connection Problems...'. Finally, the internet explorer settings can be examined and changed by selecting the 'Tools' menu option and then selecting 'Internet Options'

I thank you for giving a rating to this solution if it has been helpful.

Have a great day,

Internet Explorer can not display this webpage


This is not Internet Explorer's fault, this is a bad network connection. I presume you have wireless because I experience the same issues occasionally when my wireless connection drops out. The only solution to this is either use an ethernet cable from the router to the computer or move the computer/router closer to each other or get a further reaching router. Hope that helps!

Have internet connection but browser won't open


There are a number of choices to get it working so let's try one at a time:
Click start>run>type cmd to get to DOS prompt>then type ping 127.0.0.1. You should see some packets being sent and packets being received. This is to test that your network card is working. If you do not get any packets received then your network card is bad. If you do get packets received then let me know there are still a couple of options.

Internet issues


Hi,

In the right bottom corner of the screen you can see the Wireless icon, right click on it and select Connect to a Network.

Then a box will be opened where you can see the available routers. Select your router click on connect.

If it still shows that it is connected but Internet explorer won't display page, then once try to ping Websites.

Click on Start--Run

type ping www.google.com -t and press Enter.

You should get reply from the Website. if you won't get reply, then there is no Internet connection at all. In that case, you can try the below steps:

1. Press the Start button, then select Run..
2. type cmd in the dialog box, and press OK.
3. In the command line interface that appears, type ipconfig /flushdns and press Enter.
4. Then, type ipconfig /release and press Enter.
5. Now type ipconfig /renew
6. Exit the command prompt.

That should resolve the issue.


If you get reply from the Website and Internet won't display page, then download and install the winsock.exe file from the following Web site:
http://www.pchell.com/downloads/WinsockXPFix.exe

This bring the connectivity to Browser.

Try that and get back to us if the issue persists.

Connect to internet


right click on the network icon in the taskbar, and click repair. Are you using wireless or wired? There are several things which must occur for a system to be set up to properly connect to a network, or to a new network should that be the case.

Also, try viewing a different webpage. Type in (in the address bar) something easy, like www.google.com and see what happens.

God luck let us know how that works out
