Cannot access the internet on my PC. Feels like a virus, LAN says its connected. All i get is Web page cannot be displayed. Can anyone help? Howard

See if you can boot to safe mode with networking (F8 at boot, if you get an operating system choice, press enter then F8) and see if you can access the internet. If you can go to HTTP://WWW.DOWNLOAD.COM and download Malwarebytes. It will install from the safe mode and you can run it from the safe mode. Have it do a full scan then reboot to the normal mode after any fixes it recommends are run.
If you can't get any pages with your browser, even in safe mode with Networking, then you may have an issue with your router/modem. Power down the system, then power down and unplug power from the Router, then power down and unplug the DSL/Cable Modem. WAIT 5 MINUTES Power on the Modem, wait for it to complete self-test (About a minute for most) then Power on the router and again wait for self-test, the power on the system.
If you are still getting a valid IP address (Start RUN CMD, they type IPCONFIG at the command prompt, in XP, Start CMD, right click CMD on the menu, Run as Administrator in 7) and see if you have a IP address and a default gateway. If you do then the router is working and you may have issues with the cable modem. if you have a IP address and no default gateway then you system is not getting a valid IP address and is assigning one on it's own. In this case, I'd try a system restore to a time when it worked. If that is no go, you may have a NIC failure.

Welcome to Fixya. If you want Password on your router you need to access the Wireless Settings Page. To access the router page you need a working computer that is connected to the router.

Go to the Wireless Tab select Wireless Security under the Security Mode you will see there Network Key or Passphrase. The Network Key serves as a password or security code on your network to make it secure.

Everytime I sign into my yahoo mail, I get in and click on an email, it throws me out and says that internet explorer cannot display the web page. I am online, and it does not happen with any other site,...

Try doing it in safe mode with networking and check if it will also do the same thing. To go to safe mode, restart your computer and while it's booting, keep on tapping F8 to activate the Boot Menu Option then chose Safe Mode with Networking. If it works, then there may be a virus.

You can also try using a different browser like Mozilla Firefox or Chrome to check if it's a browser issue.

But if you try it again using a different computer, that means you need to check the settings of your Yahoo Mail. You'll definitely find something in the options that you might have accidentally changed.

These are the things that you can do to isolate the issue. Once you have tried these steps, that would at least tell you where to look and eventually find the solution.

Hope this helps.

Oops this link appears to be broken dns error - cannot find server windows 7 explorer 8

The error refers to the Domain Name Server (DNS) that your system uses is unable to translate the Uniform Resource Locator (URL, web address either Typed in the address line or linked using a hyper-link, favorite or default home page) (In english, the translation of a web address link to the Internet Protocol (IP) address that computers actually use to show the page)
Possible causes:
  1. The URL is wrong. (Typed wrong, link no longer active, link changed)
  2. The DNS server listed for your ISP configuration is not working.
  3. The web site is offline.
  4. The DNS server settings for your internet configuration are wrong.
Possible resolutions:
  1. Try a different Web Address, see if it works
  2. Restart (Completely power off your Cable/DSL modem and then do the same with your router)
  3. Check you IP address configuration settings and ensure that auto-assign DNS is selected (Default setting)
  4. Boot to safe mode with networking, see if you can get online that way.
