Inter net browser opens but doesn't connect, internet connection is connected but cant connect to the browser? I'm using either Firefox or IE on a dell 8300 that had a vundo problem. since I ran a clean up with the modem disconnected, I reconnected the modem(cable) and cant connect. The modem indicates a connection and the browser starts up and opens but I get no start page or any pages...therefore no connetion from the browser to the modem?

This is typical, there's a new virus that overwrites the dns server details and the only fix for this problem is either to waste hours recovering dns or doing a clean installation will fix it. "clean installation means format the hard drive, and re-install your operating system"

please rate me.

Wifi internet connected, internet explorer will not load web page


Get a new internet browser, download Firefox from here:
http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/firefox/releases/latest/win32/en-US/Firefox%20Setup%2031.0.exe

Then make sure your computer time clock is correct, you can adjust the time and date by right clicking on the clock and then read the rest.

If that doesn't work you need to check your wifi router, you might need to unplug it for 1 minute then plug it back in.

If that doesn't work you need to check your Proxy settings in Internet Explorer. Do this by opening IE, then go to Tools > Internet Options > Connections > LAN Settings > Uncheck all boxes then click Apply/Ok and exit IE and try again.

Just use Firefox, it is much better than IE, for many reasons.

My yahoo messenger is not opening from last 6 months even though i have deleted it and downloaded it many times. Please help me out!


Hello!
1. Make sure you have a stable internet connection.
2. Check for spelling and capital letters on your username and password when signing in.
3. Upgrade the Internet Explorer of your Windows. Yahoo products like yahoo messenger rely its connection via Internet Explorer. (Doesn't matter if you are using different internet browser like firefox or safari...just upgrade IE)
this will help you sign in with ease.

Good Luck and please rate my answer.
Post back if you want me to assist you further.

Neither Internet Explorer or Firefox will connect to internet. Firefox say it cant connect to proxy server. How do I check proxy settings?


Open your Internet Explorer,
Go to Tools -> Internet Options -> Connections "Tab" -> LAN Settings -> Proxy server, uncheck the box -> OK

Restart your Browsers ie IE or Firefox, you don't need the proxy server if your are a home users.

Hope it helps.

Cant get on the internet when i click on google chrome icon I get "web page not avaiable"


Try using other browsers like IE or Mozilla Firefox and check if you can browse the Internet. If yes, uninstall and reinstall Google Chrome. If you can't access Internet via IE and Mozilla Firefox as well, chances are you don't have Internet connection. Contact your ISP if that's the case.

Compaq presario v2000 cant go online using the intergrated broadband connection both wireless & wired. The broadband adaptors are working properly and the wifi has allowed the antivirus to update, but not...


Have you tried to use a different browser to rule out IE (that has not been previously installed on PC)? Try Firefox (I prefer IE BTW), and if your internet starts working you know that it's your browser's. Also, you can check to make sure that there are no proxies setup in your IE. Click on Tools > Internet Options > Connection tab > LAN Settings (at the bottom) - once in LAN Settings, uncheck all the boxes.
