    Are you running XP or Vista. Firewall can be turned off on them via the Security Center. Routers also have firewalls as well as some modems. Are you totally sure it's the OS firewall.

I purchased an acer aspire have net router every thing but just by pushing the fn and f3 button still cant seem to get open launch manager to turn on wi-fi help please


Hi,

The best way to check if the computer can access to Internet is to boot the computer to "Safemode with Networking", to do so, restart the computer and as soon as it restarts keep on tapping F8 key, now select "Safemode with Networking" from the Advance boot menu. Try to connect to internet. If you are able to connect to Internet then the issue is with the firewall on you computer, contact the firewall manufacturer or settings. If you are still unable to connect to Internet, then the internet setting are not correct, you may need to contact the ISP.

Thanks and regards,
Jitha.G.J

Unidentfied network is connected, no internet access, i see a chair between the internet acces and the laptop. tried to reboot everything several times, turned off firewalls, nothing helps/


That unidentified network, have you connected to that before and browsed the internet? Just because you connect to a network, doesn't mean that network is setup to allow internet access. It could be a simple fact that you need to connect to a different network.

I have a acer aspire 1, my wireless internet is on but when i click the browser icon nothing happens-dont connect to yahoo etc. can anyone help/suggest any ideas


Can you connect to the internet through a different program, such as Firefox?

Is your wireless showing that you are connected to a network? If it is your firewall may be blocking the connection, try turning it off and then see if you can access the internet. If you can, add an exception to the firewall list.

If you cant it may also be your anti-virus that you are using.

Also you can try and let microsoft fix it for you automatically http://support.microsoft.com/kb/956196. Select the "Fix it" button in the centre of the page under the "fix it for me" option.

I am connected to the internet but I cant get into my Facebook. Why would that happen. I play farmville and cant get into FB to play my game


Your firewall may have blocked facebook.com... or your internet explorer may have restricted access to it... What you can do is to reset internet explorer settings by going to tools>internet options> advanced and then reset... or you can temporarily disable your firewall to test it.

I am connect to my wifi but i cant go online..help me please


Assuming your using vista - if your wifi led is blue you must have a wireless router to connect to - left click on the small computer icon with radio wave bars around it on your task bar - it will come up with a menu - connect to a network - select your network - address your password and connect - if it connects but your unable to access the internet through IE - look at your firewall - make sure it's under windows control not by your anti-virus like Nortons 360 - there are some heavy glitches with nortons 360 and windows firewall. Never let Nortons control your firewall.
If you still can not access the internet try getting and loading Firefox 3.6 it works when IE won't.
Let me know how you go.

CAN'T SIGN IN TO YM


you may have a firewall that is blocking. If you have recently installed any antivirus programs, they sometimes come with firewalls that block certain programs from accessing the internet. Just adjust your firewall setting or remove your firewall entirely. although I don't recommend you turning off your firewall as it is your first line of defense when on the internet.

Internet


what type of program are you using? check the properties or references of the programs that you are using. you may need to configure it in accordance with your home network setup. your firewall (software or router/hardware) may also be a cause. check your firewall settings and enter the port number being used by the program. make sure that the firewall allows your program to run and connect to the internet.
