    Hi mate,



    I am not sure about firefox but I do know that I have a connection to the internet.



    It seems to be like some sort of firewall blocking anything to do with opening up an internet page.



    When I first uploaded my wireless card etc from my ISP the internet worked fine. I had not used my computer for a while and my Mcafee was out of date, I thought that may be blocking it. I removed the Mcafee and still cannot open a website.



    I am certain that I am connected to the internet, as I have a strong signal and it says connected.



    It is like something simple that I am not aware of not allowing me to open a site.



    Please help



    Thanks in advance



    Shane

Internet explorer stopped working


Diagnose Connection Problems With Internet Explorer
Internet connection and network errors can be frustrating and confusing to a casual computer user.
However, Internet Explorer provides a diagnostics tool to help identify and even repair the most common network issues.
This tool is simple to use, organized in steps, and can help get a computer back up and running quickly.

Open Internet Explorer and click on the "Tools" button in the control bar at the top of the window. From the "Tools" menu, select "Diagnose Connection Problems."
A window will appear, displaying the start page of the diagnostics tool.
Follow the instructions to determine the cause of the connection error.
The diagnostics tool will ask a series of multiple-choice questions about the connection problem you are experiencing.
Close all programs and restart the computer.
If you continue to receive an error when attempting to connect to the Internet, check that all cables and power-supply cords for the computer, modem and/or router are properly connected. Then, run the diagnostic tool again.
Call your Internet service provider's technical support phone number if you cannot resolve the error with the diagnostics tool.
The Internet Explorer diagnostics tool cannot repair or reset malfunctioning or failing hardware like modems and routers.

Internet crashing
If your Internet Explorer keeps randomly crashing (closing by itself), there may be an add-on or temporary page disrupting the connection.
Every time you browse the web, Internet Explorer keeps track of the websites you visit.
It keeps these pages, along with cookie trackers, in the "Temporary Browsing History" folder. Some websites cause Internet Explorer to crash.
Open the Internet Explorer browser. Go to "Tools > Delete Browsing History."
Hit "Delete All."
Check off the box that says "Also delete files and settings stored by add-ons."
Hit "OK."

Close and reopen the browser.
Disable Add-Ons
Go to "Start > Search."
Type "Internet Explorer" and hit "Enter."
The computer will search for any files with this label.
Double-click on the file that says "Internet Explorer (No Add-Ons)."
This will allow you to browse in IE without any additional plug-ins or add-ons that might be causing the browser to crash.
Reset Internet Explorer
Open the IE browser.
Go to "Tools > Internet Options."
Hit "Advanced." Click on "Reset" and then hit "Enter."
Close and reopen the browser.
You might have to many programs trying to or accessing your computer or the internet at the same time or a virus
Scroll to bottom toolbar (bottom of screen) right click select task manager applications and processes to see you what's running and ticking over
if you see anything you don't need running select end now and you might uninstall that specific
program if you or computer does not require it to run and
some unnecessary programs that could be jamming up your computer
also under processes see what is ticking over in the background again if you see something you
don't need to be running select end now and users you will see who is using your computer

How we connect internet to iphone


The iPhone can connect to the internet through both Wi-Fi and EDGE. Wi-Fi would be the wireless network at your home or business. When the iPhone connects to the internet through EDGE, it is actually connecting through the AT&T phone connection (or any other service provider the iPhone works with in the future).
safari.jpgTo the connect to the internet, you simply need to open up Safari (which is the internet browser used by the iPhone). If you're used to using a pc, think of Safari as the 'Internet Explorer' that the iPhone uses. You can use Safari the same way you could use Internet Explorer.
Once you open up Safari, the iPhone will attempt to connect to the internet. If there are wireless networks available wherever you happen to be, the iPhone will prompt you to choose one to connect to. If you're trying to connect to a network that has security, you will be prompted to enter the password for the network.
If you want to check to see whether there is a wireless network available where you live, work, or play, go to 'Settings' and then 'Wi-Fi'. The iPhone will show you all of the wireless networks that are available.
If there aren't any wireless networks to connect to, iPhone will connect to the internet over EDGE. Connection speeds over EDGE will likely be somewhat slower than they would be over a Wi-Fi network. You will also not be able to answer phone calls while connected to the internet through EDGE. If the iPhone is connected to the internet over EDGE you will see this small icon at the top of your screen: edge-icon.jpg

Internet explorer will not start. I have windows xp home edition and when the problem first stated I had IE 7 I have since upgraded to IE 8 and it still wont work. I have also tried resetting internet...


1. Go on start menu and find "control panel"

2. Once you've clicked on "control panel" click on "network and internet"

3. Click on "Internet options"

4. Click on the "connections" heading

5. Click "set up" and connect it up to your internet. Make sure internet explorer is also set as your default browser. How to set it as default browser - Open internet explorer (with connection or without)click on Tools> Internet Options. Click on the Program tab, then click on the Make Default button.

If that doesn't work -

1. Go on start menu and find "control panel"

2. Once you've clicked on "control panel" click on "network and internet"

3. Click on "internet options then the "programs" heading

4. Click on "make default"

If that doesn't work check on network and sharing centre on your control panel and make sure your 100% connected to the internet.

If you are and my connecting up to the internet didn't work try contacting your internet provider.

Hope 1 of my two solutions helped :)

Internet Explorer Cannot display the webpage. It appears you are connected to the Internet, but you might want to reconnect to the internet.


Ok.. It would be helpful if you would provide more info than that, but lets see what I can do.
So, you might be unable to connect to the internet. It depends if you have a laptop or a desktop, and if you go wireless or by that little phone looking plug in. If you have that "hook" check if its connected. If you got wireless, than check if wireless is on and try connecting to a network. If none of tha doesn't work then reboot the computer!

Hope I helped!! Good luck and plz rate!
