Unable to browse the web although connected

Running Windows Vista / IE 8. Seem to be connected to my wireless network but cannot open any web pages. Receive message ''Internet explorer cannot display the web page''. When I click on diagnose connection problems, a dialogue box opens with this message. ''www.yahoo.com is not set up to establish a connection on port ''World Wide Web service (HTTP)'' with this computer.'' I receive this message for any website I attempt to go to. Have been searching every support group I can find and nobody mentions the WWW service message I am receiving. Any clues anyone?

    Hi loobob83, can you do this.
    Go to dos prompt or cmd propmt and type in ping www.yahoo.com to see if your p.c can find yahoo and connect to yahoo. Then try tracert www.yahoo.com and see if it can connect to yahoo.
    It might be your firewall settings are blocking ports, check the firewall settings on vista.
    Then get back to us with what you discover ?

Are you using Norton Internet Security? Perhaps even with ANOTHER anti-virus product installed?

At any rate, turn off / uninstall any firewall product you are using and see if this solves the problem.

SOURCE: I tried to connect Netgear Wireless Router

Try connecting a cable directly from your router to your laptop and using the actual IP address of your router instead of routerlogin.com, being a Netgear it should be 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.0.1.
Hope this helps.

Hello :
Maybe your web browser is not stable . Here is what to do : Just go to www.microsoft.com and download internet explorer again and install it , then reboot your system .

Most commonly, this is related to Computer Security settings which is automatically imposed by Antivirus programs or Firewalls...

First of all, uninstall or disable all the security softwares and try again. If it works, then re-enable them one by one while you keep trying.

Make sure not more than one antivirus program is installed. If there are more than one antivirus or security programs running on your computer, please uninstall one of them, otherwise this might case another problem.

Many similar cases is related to Norton Antivirus when it's mis-configured, so the best is to keep the default settings of Norton if you have installed one.

It could also be related to DNS problem, if your connection is extended from a Server at your home or office, you have to check and make sure the DNS is properly configured. If you don't have idea about your DNS and your connection is directly link to the ISP, then please contact them and let them check your connection settings from their end.

This is sometimes IP related problem, so make sure you use the IP address given by your ISP or it's set correctly. In rare cases, the IP Release should be helpful. From your end, you can try the "ipconfig/release" command. Click "Start" > "Run" or "start search"> type in "cmd", press "Enter" and again type in "ipconfig/release" in the black window and press Enter. If this doesn't help, you'll need to contact your ISP to make sure there's no problem with your IP address.


I would also suggest you to try accessing the internet using another browser, if this happens with Internet Explorer, try Firefox or Google Chrome...

Click here to download Firefox

Click here to download Google Chrome.

If you need further help, let me know.

Good Luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

You probably have a problem with your router, or cable modem. Try resetting the router and cable modem. To do this unplug the cable modem for ten seconds, then the router for ten seconds. Plug in the router first wait till all the lights except for the ONLINE light are solid flashing then plug in the cable modem and wait for about 30 seconds and try again.

Registry errors


You may have encountered the following message while browsing certain websites:

"Internet Explorer cannot open the Internet site http://<website>.com. Operation aborted."


This really has nothing to do with your browser or your computer. You get this error because of faulty web coding from the webmaster's end.

IE displays this error when it is unable to open a particular element on a web page.


There are many things you can do to troubleshoot this kind of problem.


Upgrade Internet Explorer.

This problem does not occur in Internet Explorer 8. Navigate to Microsoft download Center and click on the "Download" button to upgrade to IE8 or IE9 (see Below).


http://download.cnet.com/windows-internet-explorer-8/3000-2356_4-10910662.html

IE 8


http://www.microsoft.com/windows/internet-explorer/default.aspx

IE 9


Click on "Tools" and select "Internet Options." Hit the "Advanced" tab.

Click to remove the check mark next to "Show friendly HTTP error messages" under "Browsing" sub-headings.


Click on "Apply" and hit "OK." Please note this works mostly for Internet Explorer 6, although there is no harm in trying this on older or newer versions.


Add the specific website that is producing "Operation aborted" error under "Restricted Sites."


Click on the "Security" tab under "Internet Options."

Single-click to highlight "Restricted Sites."


Hit on the "Sites" button and click on "Add."

Type the URL of the website and hit "OK."


This works for Internet Explorer 7, but again, you can try this in earlier versions.


Disable or require prompt for "Active Scripting" when you view the specific website.

Click on the "Security" tab.


Click to highlight 'Restricted Sites" zone.

Navigate down to the sub-heading "Scripting."


Click to select "Disabled" under "Active Scripting."

You may also choose "Prompt" if you want IE to issue a prompt when opening the specific web page or website.


If you are still worried about the registry or need to fix any problems with it

You can run a free registry scan using utilities from http://re7.info

Hope this helps.

Wireless connection lost - unable to access properties (error)


You can solve the problem by reseting the router

Plese make sure you hard wire the Router to the computer (Using the Ethernet Cable)

Use the following steps to reset the router using this method:
  1. Open your Web browser and enter the IP address of your router. By default, the address is “192.168.1.1′.
  2. Enter your user ID And password when prompted. Hopefully this has been changed, but if it hasn’t, the default is no ID and “admin” as the password.
  3. At the top of the Web page, click “Administration” and then “Factory Defaults”.
  4. Beside “Restore Factory Defaults”, click “Yes”.
  5. Now click the “Save Settings” button at the bottom of the Web page.
Your WRT54G wireless router should now be reset to the factory defaults.
----
If you were trying to uncheck the box for Use Windows to configure my wireless network settings you can change it by disabling the "wireless zero configuration"....i guess you are using Windows XP...if it is Windows Vista...you got to disable "WLAN Auto Config"(Not recommended, as vista works best with defualt windows utility i.e. WLAN AutoConfig)

Go to start...click RUN (Or Simply Press Windows Key and Letter 'R' together on the Keyboard)
Type in services.msc
Scroll through the bottom of the page
Highlight Wireless Zero Configuration and do a right click to select Properties
Go to Properties and click on Startup Type and change it to disable
Click on Apply and click OK

----
Just a small advice do check for any kind to Electro-Magnetic interference caused by any devices like - Microwave,Cordless phone,Mobile,Fridge, or electronic device as they may interfere and may not let the Router and Computer to connect

Netgear wireless wgr614 is configured and the ports wired connected and is working ok while wireless portion the laptop running vista says connection is limited and unable to browse


If you connect the computer to the router , it works.
That means the wired connection is OK.
Open the set up page of the router check the wireless settings of the router.
I think your network is secured and you are not typing the correct network key.
just open the router set up and check the wireless settings .

Unable to open pages...wireless connection is enabled


Windows WiFi Fix,
Windows Zero Wireless Configuration is one of the best programs to run a WiFi in Windows XP or Vista. Most of the other software packages that come with the different adapters have been poor at best in keeping a connection through Windows. Here is the best guide to get you back up and connected.
Windows XP:
Click Start
Right click on My Computer
When a window pops up click on properties
Click on the Hardware tab
Click Device Manager
Click the [+] next to Network Adapters
Find your wireless card and right click on it.
Click Disable
Windows may warn you that disabling the device may make it stop functioning.
Continue disabling the device.
Wait 30 seconds or so.
Right click on your wireless again and click Enable.
Exit the device manager.
Reconnect to your router.
You should now be able to connect to the internet.

Windows Vista:

Click Start Logo
Right Click Computer
Click Device Manager
Windows will ask you about opening Device Manager Click Continue
Click the [+] next to Network Adapters
Find your wireless card and right click on it.
Click Disable
Windows may warn you that disabling the device may make it stop functioning.
Continue disabling the device.
Wait 30 seconds or so.
Right click on your wireless again and click Enable.
Exit the device manager.
Reconnect to your router.
You should now be able to connect to the internet.

XP laptop connects to router, but connection doesn't work


first thing you may want to check on will be from your computer.

since you are using windows XP just browse for the available wireless network then click on "Change the Order of Preferred network", once you are in, remove the Belkin SSID from the list and other networks that has to do something with Belkin.

Next step is to changing the SSID and the channel of your router and get it encrypted. Start with WEP, and once you have it connected, work your way up to WPA to get more security. just make sure that your XP has the WPA patch, but since you have SP2, you may have it on.

hope this helps out. if you have other questiosn just lemme know.
