I can't get my LAN settings to automatically detect settings, box will not check.


Reset your proxy settings
Proxy servers, or proxies, act as intermediary servers between a Web browser and the Internet. According to Microsoft's website, proxies are mainly used by networks in companies to enhance the security and speed of their network connection.
Proxy servers can also be used to log Internet usage, mask the network address of a server or to apply global restrictions to a network.
Internet Explorer is set to automatically detect proxy servers by default.
You can reset the Internet Explorer proxy settings to their default settings from the "Internet Options" configuration.

I have found the easiest way to do this is to add the menu to the top of a webpage.
Create the menu tab on your homepage right click in the top toolbar you should see a number of toolbar options select the menu tab which will add File Edit View Favorites Tools and Help
Click on tools option then from the drop down list Internet Options
Select the "Connections" tab, and click the "LAN Settings" button.
Delete the proxy server address and port from the "Proxy Server" settings and clear the "Use a proxy server for your LAN" check box.


Clear the check box beside the "Automatically detect settings" and "Use automatic configuration script" options in the "Automatic Configuration" section of the "LAN Settings" dialog window. Click "OK."
Click "Apply" and then "OK" to save these changes and close the "Internet Options" dialog window.
Close all Internet Explorer browser windows for these changes to take effect.

Anonymity


I can see you hiding in the shadows over there and so can the logs of all the web sites, FTP servers and other nooks and crannies you visit on the web. The sort of information gathered by these logs and which is available to the webmasters of the sites you visit include the address of the previous site you visited, your IP address, your computer's ID name, your physical location and the name of your ISP along with less personal details such as the operating system you're using and your screen resolution. If someone was snooping through your dustbin to gather information on consumer trends or tracking your every move to see where it is you go everyday you woudn't be too chuffed would you. Well the web is no different, it's still an invasion of privacy and a threat to security and you don't have to put with it.

Proxy Servers:
Every time you visit a web site, detailed information about your system is automatically provided to the webmaster. This information can be used by hackers to exploit your computer or can be forwarded to the market research departments of consumer corporations who by tracking your activities on the internet are better equipped to direct more relevant spam at you. Your best defence against this is to use what is known as a proxy server, which will hide revealing information from the web sites you visit, allowing you to surf the web anonymously. These work by altering the way in which your browser retrieves web pages or connects to remote servers. With a proxy server set up, whenever you 'ask' IE or Netscape to look at a web page, the request is first sent through an external server which is completely independent of your ISP's servers. This third party server then does the requesting on your behalf so that it appears that the request came from them rather than you and your real IP address is never disclosed to the sites you visit. There is nothing to download and the whole process takes less than a minute.

There are two different ways to use proxy servers and both have their advantages and disadvantages. The first method is to use a web based service. What this method is to use a web based service. What this involves is visiting the proxy's home page each time you want to browse a web site anonymously. The core component of such a system is the dialog box where you enter the address of the web site you want to visit. Each time you enter the URL of the site you want to browse via the proxy into this box, your personal information, IP address and so on is first encrypted before being sent to the site allowing you to maintain your anonymity.

Anonymity - Cookies
One last important point you need to be aware of before jumping in with both feet is that different programs have to be setup in different ways before being able to make external connections via a proxy server. For example, you can surf the wed anonymously by modifying the settings in Internet Explorer or Netscape Navigator as explained earlier in this tutorial, but this will only affect your browser. If you then used Flash FXP to copy a batch of 0-day releases from one FTP server to another, this isn't going to protect you in the slightest. What you have to do is enter the name of the proxy server into each application you wish to make anonymous before making any external connections. This can usually be done by browsing through the preferences of your program to see it there is a 'use proxy server' option available. If there is, make sure you use it.

Cookies
The solution to this problem is to delete any cookies which contain sensitive data once you have completed your transactions. You cookies will be stored in a different place depending on which operating system you are using so you will have to use your detective skills to find them. As an example, in Windows XP they are located in your 'c:\documents and settings\Rob Brown\cookies' directory (that is if your name is Rob Brown. Mine isn't in case you're wondering!). If you look in this directory, in some cases it is easy to identify which cookie is associated with which web site, but in other cases it's not so obvious. The cookie which was created when you visited yahoo.com to check your email may be called rob brown@yahoo.txt for example. Unfortunately some cookies refer to the IP address of the site you visited and so look more like rob brown@145.147.25.21. These cookies can be selectively deleted one at a time if it's obvious which ones are causing a threat to your security, or you can just wipe out the whole lot in one fell swoop and have then recreated as and when they are required. However, if you're really struggling to find your cookie jar, you could delete your cookies via your browser's tool bar instead. In Internet Explorer this can be done through the 'Tools" > Internet Options' menu items.

If all this sounds like to much hassle, you can always find a labour saving program which will be happy to take the job off your hands. These 'cookie crunching programs allow you to be more selective when editing, viewing and deleting cookies from your system, and some of them will even prevent cookies from being created in the first place. I know you're hungry for links so I won't deprive you. Have a look here - Code: hxxp://www.rbaworld.com/programs.cookiecruncher.

Good luck!

My laptop says it is connected to internet but won't go online


this is usually caused by a proxy in the current profile. Open your IE browser and go to the tools menu.
Pick "Internet Options"
Then go to the "Connections" tab
At the bottom, push the "LAN settings" button.
You should see this window:

Unless your ISP requires a proxy server, make your checks as the above--check only the top box.
If you ISP requires the use of a proxy, check the proxy server box and enter the address and port.
Click OK

OK?

My school is good at blocking websites and i dont know how to get on facebook


Things you will need is "Guts" and "Guts" everything.Please follow the below steps and enjoy.

1 . FACE BOOK BY PROXY Everyone knows that school is a giant waste of time, especially in America. But the popular thing nowadays is disallowing students the right to waste their own time getting into all kinds of trouble on the Internet when the teacher thinks everyone's grinding away on schoolwork. That's gotta stop. What you need is a proxy. See the resources section below for the freshest batch of unblocked, unknown proxy addresses that you can use to sneak around your school's face book blocking software.

2 . FINDING AN UNBLOCKED PROXY A proxy is essentially a middleman. You're at school and your school doesn't want you accessing Face book, so what you do is get a proxy to do the dirty work for you and bring you and Face book together in Internet bliss. And the whole time you're using face book, the school just sees that you're on some no name website... the proxy site. But it can be more difficult than you think because your school's blocking software is frequently updated to block all the new proxies and naughty websites popping up every day. The trick is to find the freshest proxy lists, that way you know you're using a proxy that your school has probably not yet blocked.

3 . HOW TO WORK THIS THING? Here's one of the newest proxies to pop up in the last few hours: http://969696.Co.CC When you go to the above URL you find a box that says, "Enter the URL Address:" What you're going to want to do right here is enter in the URL address that your school has blocked. In this case it's Face book we're trying to access, so go ahead and type in "http://www.facebook.com" and hit Enter, or for the purists you can click on the Surf Now! button.

4 . WAIT The bad thing about proxies is they tend to be really slow and difficult. Sometimes they work like a charm. Other times they work like a curse. You have to remember that you're using another computer to access a website and then bring that website back to you. Combine this with a school full of slow networks and clogged computer systems and you end up with quite a bit of waiting time on your hands. But if you're sitting on the Internet at school with enough time on your hands to research how to access Face book at school, it's probably safe to say that you don't really have much else better to do anyway.

5 . JOIN THIS FACE BOOK GROUP Ironically enough, one of the top places to find all the newest proxies relevant to unblocking Face book is actually a Face book group. See the resources section below for a link, but do yourself a favor and join this group from your home computer and check out all the newest proxy information at night before school. That way you'll be the hippest dude in school - the dude who can always get on Face book.

Hope the above information will be helpful to you.
Thanks.

Need help connecting wireless router


To connect a laptop to a wireless network for accessing internet....you have two ways:-

  1. DHCP (Dynamic Host Control Protocol)
  2. Manual entry of settings in wireless adapter properties.
1.DHCP:-
In DHCP method you dont have to enter any settings on the wireless adapter. The wireless network which you are connecting will automatically assign an IP Address to you. But to use DHCP it must be supported by your wireless network.

2. Manual entry of settings in wireless adapter properties.

This method is mostly used over wireless Connection in small networks connecting 2-200 computers. In this method you have to obtain the following information from your connection provider.
  • IP address (Its format is "xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx")
  • Default gateway address (very important)
  • Primary and secondary DNS (If not given then you can use "8.8.8.8" as primary DNS and "8.8.4.4" as Secondary DNS...thats free DNS service from google and its very fast)
  • Subnet Mask (not needed mostly...automatically generated)
To enter these settings you have to rightclick the Wireless Adapter>> and select properties>>Then double click the Internet Protocol version 4(TCP/IPv4) and enter these settings. In many cases when you are using proxy server then you have yo use proxy settings also in your browser..
Hope this will help....Cheers..:)

Errors found:Code 8024402C Windows can't check for updates


Description:
The 0×8024402C error code occurs because an incorrect character exists in the proxy override settings.
Possible Cause/s:
1. Incorrect character exists in the proxy override settings.
2. A misconfigured Proxy/Firewall can cause this problem.
3. You are trying to access Windows Update using VPN. The website and Automatic Update may not function properly.
4. The corporate environment does not have autoproxy implemented.
5. Your workstations sits behind a Microsoft ISA server.
Resolution 1:
Remove invalid characters from the proxy exception list and then clear the proxy cache:
1. Open Internet Explorer.
2. On the Tools, select Internet Options.
3. Click on the Connections tab.
4. Click on the LAN Settings.
5. Click on the Advanced button.
6. Please delete any entry in the Exceptions section.
Next, clear your proxy cache:
1. Click on Start, and then click Run.
2. Type cmd in the Open box to get a DOS prompt.
3. Type proxycfg -d at the command prompt, and press Enter.
4. Type net stop wuauserv at the command prompt, and press Enter.
5. Type net start wuauserv at the command prompt, and press Enter.
6. Now try the site again.
Resolution 2:
Reconfigure or update your firewall program:
1. Double-check the Proxy/Firewall settings. Add the following urls to the exception list within your Firewall/Proxy:
http://*.windowsupdate.microsoft.com
https://*.windowsupdate.microsoft.com
http://download.windowsupdate.com
Resolution 3:
VPN and Proxy.
You are trying to access Windows Update using VPN. The website and Automatic Update may not function properly.
Autoproxy is not picking up the wpad.dat proxy configuration file to determine the proxy to be used for the target URL. Thus we are going with no proxy!
1. Try to access Windows Update while not using VPN connection.
2. Use the proxycfg tool to specify a proxy server to use (proxycfg.exe -p <proxy server>). (contact your network administrator to find out the name and port of this proxy.)
This is every possible cause and solution for this error code and how to fix it. Please take the time to rate this Fixya for me for spending an hour researching every possible cause and solution for this code you posted for free, even if you don't figure it out. The solution to your problem is definitely here so read it carefully.
