Unable to browse with Windows


While having a computer is great, there are times when you are going to have issues. First, make sure you are connected to the internet. You can do it a few different ways, hook another computer to your modem or router. If you have a wireless router, you can also connect to it via your smart phone or ipod. If these work, then you connection is good and it's your computer.
One of the first steps in seeing where windows is broken. Fist we need to ping a website. This allows you to see if your computer can actually see outword to the internet. Click on start, run, and type in "cmd". You will get a small black box. After the "C:>" type in "ping google.com" You want to see if you get 4 out of 4 replys. This means your computer is connect to the internet and it is able to see news.com.
If this works, next, type in the IP address your were given for google, in my case it was 74.125.47.147, in the address bar of internet explorer. This will tell you if you are having an issue with your browser or not. You can also try getting a different web browser, such as Firefox or Chrome, then run Windows updates.
If you are unable to ping, then check your LAN(local are network) by right clicking on My Network Places, and selecting properties. If your LAN shows as disconnected, right click on it and chose enable. Try pinging again. Also, check your firewalls and turn them off.
There are many other things you can try, but this should be a good overview of some starting steps on fixing an issue where you can not browse

I need a fix for internet exployer


Microsoft's Internet Explorer 8 (IE8) browser includes "add-on" applications that can be downloaded and installed from Microsoft, or third-party providers, into Internet Explorer.


Occasionally, add-ons may conflict with other add-ons or software on the computer, causing errors.

These can also occur when IE settings conflict with newly installed add-ons.


Resolve add-on related error conditions quickly in IE8 by resetting Internet Explorer to Microsoft defaults.


Click the "Start" button. Click "Run" or "Search," and type "inetcpl.cpl in the "Run" or "Search" box, and press the "Enter" key.


Select the "Advanced" tab in the "Internet Options" window, then click the "Reset" button.

Click the "Reset" button again to confirm that you wish to reset Internet Explorer to Microsoft defaults.


Select the "Close" button, once the display indicates that the reset process has been completed.

Click the red "X" in the upper-right corner of Internet Explorer to close the browser.


Open Internet Explorer and the errors should be resolved.


also

Experience problems with Internet Explorer 7 right off the bat, and it may be due to installation problems.

Make sure you reboot twice after installing the new browser.


Download any updates for IE7.

Check the Microsoft website for recommended updates if you don't have automatic updates turned on for your computer.


Check your add-ons, those "extras" like ActiveX controls for your browser, if you still experience problems.


After accessing "manage add-ons" through the "Tools" menu in your browser window, disable all add-ons, and try browsing.


If you can successfully browse without errors on the page, then one of your add-ons may be the culprit. Enable add-ons one at a time and try browsing.


Once you find the problem, delete it or update the add-on to work with Internet Explorer 7.


Contact Microsoft if a website denies permission for entering when it shouldn't.


It could be a problem with document. domain property or the protocols of the URLs not matching.


Update and run the most recent version of JavaScript. JavaScript is a scripting language used on many websites.


Adjust security settings in the browser if you still experience page error messages.


Select the "Tools" menu and access "Internet Options." Under the "Security" tab, choose "Custom Level" to pull up the security settings window and review for possible problems.


Hope this helps

I can't connect to internet explorer


Try another Web Browser like Firefox or Mozilla to see if you can browse the web. You have to use another pc to download the firefox/mozilla browser and install it on your non-working pc.

If other browser works, then open up Internet Explorer and click on Tools/Internet Options/Advanced/Reset and click OK/Apply. If that does not work, download IE browser again from another pc and install it on the non-working pc.

If other web browser does not work, verify that you can ping outside and get a reply. Click Start/ click Run and type cmd and press enter. Type ping www.fixya.com and press enter. You will get a reply if you have internet connection. If you do not get a reply when you ping www.fixya.com and other computer connects to the internet, scan your PC for malwares.

Internet explorer not working


Check whether your internet connection is working properly or not. To check this ping to your DNS Server of your internet service provider. If you get a reply from the DNS Server then the problem is with your browser, if so then install another browser like Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome. If you dont get a reply from DNS server contact your ISP and resolve the Issue with them.

I cannot browse the internet with IE


Ok, could be quite simple or more complicated difficult to know at the moment
first its a good idea to check that you can actually connect to sites
if you can then its more likely a problem with explorer
click the start button, then click "run" when the dialouge box appears type "cmd"
A black window should appear type "ping google.com"
C:\Documents and Settings\Nick>ping google.com
Pinging google.com [72.14.207.99] with 32 bytes of data:
Reply from 72.14.207.99: bytes=32 time=95ms TTL=234
Reply from 72.14.207.99: bytes=32 time=93ms TTL=234
Reply from 72.14.207.99: bytes=32 time=98ms TTL=234

Ping statistics for 72.14.207.99:
Packets: Sent = 4, Received = 3, Lost = 1 (25% loss),
Approximate round trip times in milli-seconds:
Minimum = 93ms, Maximum = 98ms, Average = 95ms
does this appear? Next it would help to know how you connect to the internet i,e wirless router? Which operating system do you use , vista , xp etc ? Which version of internet explore are you using? And also what updates did you install recently was it a service pack update if so was it sp1 or sp2 etc as there are some known issues with update and internet connectivity
see http://support.microsoft.com/kb/331906
Another potentialy simple soloution might be to to download another browser like "firefox" from another computer put it on a usb stick and the transfer to your pc, install firefox onto your pc and see if it allows you to connect to websites

good luck, would like to know how it turns out

Getting a router signal, but no internet


Have you check if you have a valid IP address? You could run IPconfig in the DOS window to verify this. If you have a valid IP address, try pinging the default gateway (You should be able to ping it.) Then, try to ping a website. If you could ping a website or URL but still can't browse check your firewall settings and optimize your browser.

Please post here what happen.

Thanks and regards,
