    I didn't. I am assuming that I might have a driver problem. The computer boots fine. I cannot access the internet.

    Thanks

    I am also having a problem with the screen resolution. I do not have the installation software for the monitor. I was hoping to get it on the internet.

Try booting to Safe Mode and using System Restore to go back to a time before your issue started. That might at least get you on the Internet to download some drivers. Good luck and post back with how it goes.

James Romine,
Try the steps below to see if they will resolve your issue connecting to the internet.
If you are using internet explorer and fire fox and your explorer is not working, better try to do this!!!
1. start then go to control panel.
2. click internet options, then connections
3. Click LAN settings then it will open automatic configurations.
4. Remove all the check marks you see on automatic configurations and proxy server You may need to place a checkmark in the box that reads automatically detect settings
5. Press OK
Thank You,

I cant download Internet Explorer when i try I get a message to go to a dif site to download address is<AHREF=http://go microsoft.com and it took me here?


Try to clear your cache and cookies first and if you get the same message try using different browser and if it still doesn't work then you may need to use a different computer to download it and copy it in your netbook then install and it should be fine then.

Hi, I have an Hp computer with an AMD processor 802.11, and my problem is that i cannot connect to the internet using my wireless router. I have done everything from disabling to enabling my wireless...


ok, if the computer see's the router and connects then the problem is most likely in your browser settings. Check under options in either browser and see what your default connection is. Change that to your wireless and make sure you LAN settings are set to auto detect. You also want to check you router settings. If it has settings for what channel it broadcast your wirelss on make sure it is NOT using channel 6. I had this problem with my HP's, all 4 of them. Once I chenged it from forced 105mbs and to use channel 10 all the computers worked. I don't know why it is a problem but HP's don't like channel 6 on wireless routers.

How to share internet connection on Windows Vista OS. I want to share internet connection between two Laptops using Windows Vista Operating system and the other using Windows XP. The Host computer is...


All right let's call your Vista computer A and your Xp computer B. First you have to bring the two computers into LAN. If you already did this, please skip the next eight steps.

Step 1: In Vista, before doing this you should enable Sharing and Discovery. You can do that by going to Control Panel -> Network and Sharing Center. Under the section ‘Sharing and Discovery, enable Network discovery, File Sharing, Public folder sharing and others if you want to. (See picture below)

Step 2: If your LAN card that is connecting to another computer is installed, it will be shown under Control Panel -> Network Connections.

Step 3: Right click that local area connection and click properties.

Step 4: Under the tab ‘Networking’, click the properties Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4).

Step 5: Click the radio button to ‘Use the following IP’ and give an IP address (For example, IP address: 192.168.0.1 and Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0)

Step 6: Don’t give any other information, Click Ok and close everything.

Step 7: In computer B, which is the XP, make sure you enable the LAN card which is used to connect to computer ‘A’. Here you need not give any IP information as Computer ‘A’ will assign an IP address dynamically. If it’s not working make sure there are no IP assigned and change the properties to ‘Obtain an IP address automatically’.

Step 8: Test the connection by pinging. (You can do this by typing ping 192.168.0.1 or whichever is Compter ‘A’s IP in the comand prompt)

NOW your computers are connected. Now to share the internet:

Right click LAN card which is connected to Internet under Control Panel -> Network Connections and click ‘Sharing’ tab and enable both the options to share Internet. (Note: Unless there is another enabled LAN setting you will not be able to see the shared tab under properties)

Click Ok and close. This option is given by the Windows OS known as ICS (Internet Connection Sharing).

Now you can use Internet from both Computer A and Computer B from a single connection.

So this is the setup you need on the Host computer as you requested, if you turn out to need help witht he XP one too, let me know:)

Internet Explorer cannot display the web page


I've been having the same problem after I change my Aztech router to D-Link. I hope these can help you because my problem solved after doing it.

Go to Control Panel > Internet Options > Connections > LAN Settings and make sure you check the 'Automatically detect settings' option box and the other two boxes is left unchecked. Good luck!!!
