Chances are your internet connection at home differs from your "out and about" settings.

In IE go to tools + internet options + connections + lan settings + automatically detect settings. Try your browser again.

The other place where you might be able to fix your problem is within your network connections (Network Places + Network Connectons). Right click on your LAN or Wireless Connection (whichever you connect to the web with) and choose properties - scroll down to TCP/IP properties and double click on it. If you see a bunch of numbers displayed this is why you have a problem. Those numbers define your local or business network and are what is referred to as "static" ips. You can fix your connection problem by choosing obtain an IP address automatically (and the same with the DNS entry) but if you are using these settings on your internal network you are going to have problems.

Write down the settings within your TCP/IP connection (if you need to change them and so you can put them back later if necessary) and choose the automatic settings option.

Try to browse now.

    READ ME: As a side note - you can also turn OFF automatically detect proxy settings within the Tools + Internet Options + connection settings + LAN settings.

    You can also download and install Mozilla Firefox to see if it's simply a IE issue (if it isn't IE it's probably a TCP/IP problem).

How can proxy server bolked ?


A proxy server is a computer used to act as the one contact point between your computer and the open Internet. The primary benefit of a proxy server as that it can cache (store) Internet web pages and other content on its disc drives. When a user connected to the proxy server requests a web page or content that was previously accessed by another user, the proxy server can deliver that content/page from its cache to the new user without having to go out to the Internet.

Network administrators can configure a proxy server to prevent users from reaching dangerous or unauthorized web sites. So if your computer is connecting to the Internet through a proxy server, you will be using whatever restrictions the network administrators have set up. If you are not using only your home network, you are most likely NOT using a proxy server. If you are using a school, university, organization or corporate network, then you are most likely USING a proxy server to connect.

I can't get my LAN settings to automatically detect settings, box will not check.


Reset your proxy settings
Proxy servers, or proxies, act as intermediary servers between a Web browser and the Internet. According to Microsoft's website, proxies are mainly used by networks in companies to enhance the security and speed of their network connection.
Proxy servers can also be used to log Internet usage, mask the network address of a server or to apply global restrictions to a network.
Internet Explorer is set to automatically detect proxy servers by default.
You can reset the Internet Explorer proxy settings to their default settings from the "Internet Options" configuration.

I have found the easiest way to do this is to add the menu to the top of a webpage.
Create the menu tab on your homepage right click in the top toolbar you should see a number of toolbar options select the menu tab which will add File Edit View Favorites Tools and Help
Click on tools option then from the drop down list Internet Options
Select the "Connections" tab, and click the "LAN Settings" button.
Delete the proxy server address and port from the "Proxy Server" settings and clear the "Use a proxy server for your LAN" check box.


Clear the check box beside the "Automatically detect settings" and "Use automatic configuration script" options in the "Automatic Configuration" section of the "LAN Settings" dialog window. Click "OK."
Click "Apply" and then "OK" to save these changes and close the "Internet Options" dialog window.
Close all Internet Explorer browser windows for these changes to take effect.

Computer says connected to wireless connection but pages won't load


Hello there

I had a similar problem about a week ago.
Windows 7 confirmed that i was connected and windows updates worked but i could not open any web page. The problem was that my proxy setting have changed. If this is your problem, you just open your broser go to tools, internet options, connections, lan connections and then just tick of the box which says auto detect settings. Restart the broser and it should work.

The other problem could just as easy be that your ip is not set to auto obtain. Try this as well. I really hope this works for you, it did for me. Please rate this.

Best regards

Every web page says NAVIGATION CANCELLED WITH THE EXCEPTION OF WINDOWS LIVE


I advice you 2 things:
1. check your internet connection.
2. In your internet explorer look for Tools, open it, click on connections tab. Then click LAN settings tab. Then check automatically detect settings. And remove check from proxy server settings.
This should work, otherwise look for help and find somebody who knows about unconfiguring group policy settings for your computer.

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!!!
