Make google your homepage


In Internet Explorer. Go to Tools in the upper left hand corner, then in that box click internet options at the bottom. A box will pop open.

In the top of that box will be an address. Delete it and type www.google.com then hit ok at the bottom. Do not hit apply, hit ok. Should be good to go. Open a new webpage to make sure it stuck.

As a side note, if you don't see the line on top of your screen that says file, view, favorites, tools, and help do this...right click with your mouse on the top of the page ABOVE (not in) the address bar and make sure "menu bar" is checked.

Computer tied to network but isnt recieving internet conection would like to factory reset


Before doing a hardware reset, please check this for me:

Start --> Run --> Type inetcpl.cpl

Inside of here:

Top right, click 'Connections'.

Towards the bottom of the box is a button that says: 'Lan Settings', click it.

Once this box opens up, check to make sure that the box that says: 'Use a Proxy Server for your LAN' does NOT have a check mark. I repeat, make sure that the box is NOT checked. If it is, uncheck it and press okay, then okay again.

Re-check your internet.

Thanks and hope this helps! if it does, please rate!

Possible reason why you lost the connection with your DSL line is that the router's configuration was changed. To reconfigure your Linksys router, you need to connect your computer wired to the router.
Open a Web Browser (IE, Firefox etc.) on the wired computer and type http://192.168.1.1 and press Enter. On the Username box leave it blank and on the password box type in admin. You will then see the router's configuration page. Under the Basic Setup tab you will see Internet Connection type on the left side of the screen. Click on the down arrow button and select PPoE, type in the Username and password that was provided by your DSL Internet service provider. Once your done click on the Save setting button on the bottom of the screen. Click on the Status tab on the top of the screen. Click on the Connect button and check if you will have an IP address on the Internet IP address option. If a valid IP address is present then you should have an internet connection then.

Not connecting to internet yet, network connection fine


Open a browser window and don't worry that it won't connect to the internet. Look at the top right of the window and click on the "Tool" drop down menu. Scroll to the bottom and click on "internet Options". Now, click on the "Connections" tab. At the bottom of the window, click on the LAN settings button. When this window opens, make sure that only the top box is checked. This box says "automatically detect settings". Make sure all other boxes are UN-checked. Click ok and refresh the browser window and see if you can connect now.

With the information provided my best guess on what it wrong is that your internet configurations such as your IP address and other options are hard coded into your system and this is easy to remove. Step One: right click on your internet connection icon in the bottom right corner that is getting the yellow symbol and click open network connections. Step Two: right click on your local area connection icon, it will be an icon named local area connection and may have a number after it such as 2. Step three: In the window that appears after step two there will be a scroll down box labeled "This connection uses the following items" at the top use the scroll bar at the right side to scroll down to the bottom and click on Internet protocol(TCP/IP) and then click the properties button( it will be the right most button of three buttons below the scroll box. step Four: on the new box that appears make sure that "Obtain an IP address automatically " is selected and that "Obtain DNS server addresses automatically" is selected then ok in the bottom corner. Step Five: click Ok on the previous box and then restart your computer system this will more then likely fix your problem. if it dose not pleas write back and I will be more that happy to provide more possible solutions to your problem

I hope this helped.

Thank you,
