    Sound like you have old phone lines? Does it mesas up more when it's wet outside. A computer magizine I read says to; " disconnect the DLS modem and let it reset every now and then". "It seems to fix  a lot of problems:,   it said ? I know I had you problem on ATT DSL before they replaced the line.

Since installing windows8, I cannot connect to the Internet via Desktop, I have to go through Mozilla Firefox???


I am hoping that you meant "windows 7" and not windows 8, as there is no such thing as windows 8, only windows 7 premature builds.
You could never connect to the internet via desktop. Mozilla firefox is an internet browser, just as microsoft internet explorer is an internet browser.
You can configure which browser is automatically brought up by opening internet explorer (Start>Internet Explorer) and selecting "use this browser as my default browser".

I know what you mean, have the same problem sometimes which is why I use firefox. Have you tried the microsoft support page for IE7 ? Also have you used the microsoft auto updater?
Maybe it can help, sorry if it doesn't.

Same exact problem


What you need to do is to reinstall the Internet Explorer 7. Go to the control panel and click on add/remove programs. Look for Windows Internet explorer 7 and remove it. Download the Internet explorer 7 from www.microsoft.com and search for Internet explorer 7
