Question about Computers & Internet
Most of the time wireless problems are cause by virus's. So let's look at a couple of things first. Goto Start, Run and type cmd. Once at the DOS prompt type IPCONFIG /all. You should get a list with one of the items being"Connection." If you do look at IP Address. If there's a number to the right such as 192.168.1.1 then your internet conection is fine and your browser is the problem. Another way to test this is to go to the DOS prompt and type Ping Sony.com. At least two lines should return with the beginning : Reply from . . . This means that your actual connection is alright but your browser is infected. Now if when you run IPCONFIG /all and you see nothing the WINSOCK files are corrupt and/or missing. To correct this first make sure your machine has no virus's malware or spyware. Then goto Start, Run and type SFC /scannow. Have the original operating system CD handy because if SFC finds corrupted files it will need to reinstall them. If now of the above produces satisfactory results you might have to do a Windows repair. I can walk you through this after you try the above.
