Question about Acer Computers & Internet
Hi I have a problem with connecting to the internet using certain programs.
works: firefox,icq,skype,teamspeak,hamachi, torrent, some main win updates
doesnt work: IE (weird it doesnt work at all, while ff has no probs), any program updates, doesnt matter if its game, drivers, programs like dvix player, antiviruses updates, I just cant update anything, I need to update everything manually from ftp downloads. Most of theese programs tells me I have something with proxy configuration... It will be a year since I experienced this problem. I tried hundreds of antiviruses and internet providers since then (I have connection from work, school, home, colledge) and its starting to get on my nerves, I am thinking about reinstalling whole os atm.
there is one program that helps me to get over this for a short time, that is ''your freedom''. If I start this I can update anything and run IE, but it has limitation and it has a snail speed :D
when I tried to dig deeper, I looked up all programs/connection preferences, I allowed everything I found, disabled every internet protections I had, still nothing. But I found this when I ran windows performance analysis: ''Zařízení, Microsoft 6t04 Adapter, error tv*ConfigMgrErr31. Toto zařízení bude k dispozici a po odstranění potíí. ID Plug and Play is 22'' and I have bunch of these adapters in drivers manager which keeps poping up when I delete them.

First remove the antivirus suites and firewalls.
Tools -> Internet Options -> Connections -> Lan Setup
Check whether "USe proxy server..." check box is checked.
If so untick it.
Apply and Ok.
If you are bot sure whether you have a proxy or not you can chose "Automatically detect settings". That will override manual configs how ever.
Alternatively you can check Connection settings of Firefox since it is working.
Check the device manager for the adapter status. Right click on My computer and go to manage. If it has yellow exclamation marks or red X as you said that means a device failure or driver failure. If so you have to rollback the drivers and if it doesn't work uninstall and re install drivers. Use Add Remove programs if a software is there. If you use a software to configure / access the network appliance (if you have one like a wireless router) un install and re install it.
Check this thread as well.
This 6to4 adapter is a IPv6-to-IPv4 conversion layer. If you are not using IPv6 communications across IPv4 routers, you do not need 6to4 enabled. You can disable it. What is the IP address you are using? Is it ip v 4 or 6? Check using ipconfig using a command window (cmd.exe in run box and hit enter). Not necessary to use IPv6 (only if your college or etc etc use IPv6. Check this thread as well. isatap will not work on Vista but it doesn't do any harm though. :D
