This may or may not help...i figure what the hell at this point, what have you got to lose. There is the possibility that you picked up malware or a trojan and it has changed the internet settings that will keep you from accessing the internet. I am guessing that all you are getting is the Internet can not connect to page. But if you look at the connection icon, it shows that you are connected to your network....right?

Bring up your home page on your web browser, I am assuming you are using Internet Explorer, but these settings are the same in each browser just in a different area. Now once the window is up, don't worry that you can't connect to the actual page, it doesn't matter, look to the right and click on the drop down menu "tools", scroll to the bottom and choose "internet Options". When this window opens, at the top click on the "Connections" tab. Look at the bottom and choose "LAN settings. Now, only the box that says "Automatically detect settings" should be checked! Everything else needs to be unchecked....period!!

Now, click apply or ok or both and exit. Now refresh the browser page and see if you home page comes up....if it does, then great....do a malware search and destroy with "MalwareBytes Anti-Malware Tool"...you can get it here... www.filehippo.com

Perform a "Quick Scan" only and delete all the infections it finds. If this does not fix the problem....sorry, I tried.

Bandwidth Explained!


Most hosting companies offer a variety of bandwidth options in their plans. So exactly what is bandwidth as it relates to web hosting? Put simply, bandwidth is the amount of traffic that is allowed to occur between your web site and the rest of the internet. The amount of bandwidth a hosting company can provide is determined by their network connections, both internal to their data center and external to the public internet.

Network Connectivity

The internet, in the most simplest of terms, is a group of millions of computers connected by networks. These connections within the internet can be large or small depending upon the cabling and equipment that is used at a particular internet location. It is the size of each network connection that determines how much bandwidth is available. For example, if you use a DSL connection to connect to the internet, you have 1.54 Mega Bits (Mb) of bandwidth. Bandwidth therefore is measured in bits (a single 0 or 1). Bits are grouped in bytes which form words, text, and other information that is transferred between your computer and the internet.

If you have a DSL connection to the internet, you have dedicated bandwidth between your computer and your internet provider. But your internet provider may have thousandsof DSL connections to their location. All of these connection aggregate at your internet provider who then has their own dedicated connection to the internet (or multiple connections) which is much larger than your single connection. They must have enough bandwidth to serve your computing needs as well as all of their other customers. So while you have a 1.54Mb connection to your internet provider, your internet provider may have a 255Mb connection to the internet so it can accomodate your needs and up to 166 other users (255/1.54).

Traffic

A very simple analogy to use to understand bandwidth and traffic is to think of highways and cars. Bandwidth is the number of lanes on the highway. If you are the only car on a highway, you can travel very quickly. If you are stuck in the middleof rush hour, you may travel very slowly since all of the lanes are being used up.
Traffic is very simply the number of bits that are transferred on network connections. It is esiest to understand traffic using examples. One Gigabyte is 2 to the 30th power (1,073,741,824) bytes. One gigabyte is equal to 1,024 megabytes. To put this in perspective, it takes one byte to store one character. Imagine 100 file cabinets in a building, each of these cabinets holds1000 folders. Each folder has 100 papers. Each paper contains 100 characters - A GB is all the characters in the building. An MP3 is about 4MB, the same song in wav format is about 40MB, the full length movie can be 800MB to 1000MB (1000MB = 1GB).
If you were to transfer this MP3 song from a web site to your computer, you would create 4MB of traffic between the web site you are downloading from and your computer. Depending upon the network connection between the web site and the internet, the transfer may occur very quickly, or it could take time if other people are also downloading files at the same time. If, for example, the web site you download from has a 10MB connection to the internet, and you arte the only person accesing that web site to download your MP3, your 4MB file will be the only traffic on that web site. However, If three people are all downloading that same MP at the same time, 12MB (3 x 4MB) of traffic has been created. Because in this example, the host only has 10MB of bandwidth, someone will have to wait. The network equipment at the hosting company will cycle through each person downloading the file and trasfer a small portion at a time so each person's file transfer can take place, but the transfer for everyone downloading the file will be slower. If 100 people all came to the site and downloaded the MP3 at the same time, the transfer would be extremely slow. If the host wanted to decrease the time it took to download files simultaneously, it could increase the bandwidth of their internet connection (at a cost dur to upgrading equipment).


Hosting Bandwidth

In the example above, we discussed ttraffic in terms of downloading an MP3 file. However, each time you visit a web site, you are creating a traffic, because in order to view that web page on your computer, the web page is first downloaded to your computer (between the web site and you) which is then displayed using your browser software (Internet Explorer, Netscape, etc. ). The page itself is simply s file in the example above (however, a web page is usually much smaller than a music file).

A web page may be very small or large depending upon the amount of text and the number and quality of images integrated within the web page. For example, the home page for CNN.com is about 200KB (200 kilobytes = 200, 000 bytes = 1, 600, 000 bits). This is typically large for a web page. In comparison, Yahoo's home page is about 70KB.

How much Bandwidth Is Enough?

It depends (don't you hate that answer). But in truth, it does. Since bandwidth is a significant determinant of hosting plan prices, you should take time to determine just howmuch is right for you. Almost all hosting plans have bandwidth requirements measured in months, so you need to estimate the amount of bandwidth that will be required by your site on a monthly basis.

If you do not intend to provide file download capability from your site, the formula for calculating bandwidth is fairly straightforward:

Average Daily Visitors x Average Page Views x Average Page Size x 31 x Fudge Factor

If you intend to allow people to download files from your site, your bandwidth calculation should be:

[(Average Daily Visitors x Average Page Views x Average Page Size) + (Average Daily File Downloads x Average File Size)] x 31 x Fudge Factor

Lets us examine each item in the formula:

Average Daily Visitors - The number of people you expect to visit your site, on average, each day. Depending upon how you market your site, this number could be from 1 to 1, 000, 000.

Average Page Views - On average, the number ofr web pages you e4xpect a person to view. If ypu have 50 web pages in you web site, an average person may only view 5 of those pages each time they visit.

Average Page Size - The average size of your web pages, in Kilobytes (KB). If you have already designed your site, you can calculate this directly.

Average Daily File Downloads - The number of downloads you expect to occur on your site. This is a function of the numbers of visitorsand how many times a visitor downloads a file, on average, each day.

Average File SIze - Average file size of files that are downloadable from your site. Similar to your web pages, if you already know which files can be downloaded, you can calculate this directly.

Fudge Factor - A number greater than 1. using 1.5 would be safe, which assumes that your estimate is off by 50%. However, if you were very unsure, you could use 2 or 3 to ensure that your bandwidth requirements are more than met.

Usually, hosting plans offer bandwidth in terms of Gigabytes (GB) per month. This is why multiples them by 31.

Summary

Most personal or small business sites will not need more than 1GB of bandwidth per month. If you have a web site that is composed of static web pages and you expect little traffic to your site on a daily basis, go with a low bandwidth plan. If you go over the amount of bandwidth plan. If you go over the amount of bandwidth allocated in you plan, your hosting company could charge you over usage fees, so if you think the traffic to your site will be significant, you may want to go through the calculations above to estimate the amount of bandwidth required in a hosting plan.

Good luck!

Not able to see the images properly on my computer screen. Everything else is working fine. but when there is any image on the web page, then I can not see that image. Can see only colors. but can not...


Well I'm assuming this is a Dell,since this is in the Dell section. First,try viewing a pic off your hard drive. If you can see that fine,then go on to the next step,if not then the video card or onboard video has a problem. Could be as simple as re-installing the driver for the device. If the pic displayed fine, then I'll assume you're using Internet Explorer 7 or newer. I'd go to www.microsoft.com & download the latest version of Internet Explorer (8 is newest but 7 is fine for older pc's). You can also try a free browser like Google's Chrome or Firefox & see if that makes a difference. Also, do yourself a favor & download Advanced System Care Free version from www.download.com . Run the windows maintenence portion & then the system diagnostics, leaving all options stock. It's a one click ,let it run program, nothing to adjust. Finally,under utilities in the same program, install the defrag program, run the internet optimizer,the disk clean up. You can actually run this program before anything else,that's if you can see the writing on the webpage to do so. that program alone fixes 80% of what I run into daily in my business. This problem appears to be software related, so the above reccomendations should help. This applies to all versions of windows.

Can´t connect with some internet pages or part of them and then my pc crashhes


I would suggest downloading the full version of IE, uninstalling the one you have, and then doing a fresh reinstall afterwards. There may be some kind of conflict with something else on the computer that could be causing the freeze. A fresh install may take care of that for you, if Internet Explorer is the only thing freezing it up. Have you tried installing another browser like Mozilla Firefox to see if there's similar problems with a different browser? You can download Firefox from http://www.mozilla.org.

I am trying to download windows live messenger, but when i do, it says that i am working offline, even though i have connected to internet!


FYI, just because you see a page open within your Browser, that in itself doesn't mean you're connected to the internet as the page may have been cached (saved). So to verify connectivity try to navigate to another page by clicking a link in the one you're on (such as the download link that gives you the offline error) or typing in a URL to another site and verifying connectivity. Once you have established connectivity to the Internet (not just your network) then try to download Messenger from Microsoft again.
If you have verified connectivity and still get the offline message, then try downloading Messenger from another source, maybe that will help.
