A sudden "error 102" from Chrome while Firefox continues to work is a very common sign of a hijacked system.
Some solutions to an "error 102" from the Chrome website include:
checking for malware clearing your Google Chrome cookies making sure Chrome is excepted in the firewall settings ensuring correct proxy settings
Because FF works and Chrome doesn't, I would think that some malware has adjusted your proxy settings in Chrome. This is relatively common.
Go to Control Panel, click Internet Options. Under the Connections Tab, click the button "LAN Settings". Make sure the "Automatically Detect Settings" box is checked. Make sure the "Use a proxy server for your LAN" is UNCHECKED. Hit "OK" and all that jazz to make sure your settings stick.
If you still have a problem, make sure your computer is completely clean, clear all your cookies and stuff, and check for any programs that might be blocking Chrome's access (firewalls and antispyware). Hope this helps somebody!

    Had internet connection problems with IE8 and Chrome but not Firefox - so did what McDoosh stated - namely:

    Go to Control Panel, click Internet Options. Under the Connections Tab, click the button "LAN Settings". Make sure the "Automatically Detect Settings" box is checked. Make sure the "Use a proxy server for your LAN" is UNCHECKED. Hit "OK" and all that jazz to make sure your settings stick.

    All ok now :-) - Thanks McDoosh

You need to disable the proxy
just run this from the command line or modify your shortcut to run chrome: "C:\Documents and Settings\YOUR USER NAME\Local Settings\Application Data\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe" --proxy-server

Error 102 when trying to connect to google chrome


Google chrome gives me this error:
Error 102 (net::ERR_CONNECTION_REFUSED): Unknown error.

Firefox gives me this error:
Failed to connect. The connection was refused when attempting to contact www.google.com.

IE gives me this error:

Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage

This problem can be caused by a variety of issues, including:

Internet connectivity has been lost.
The website is temporarily unavailable.
The Domain Name Server (DNS) is not reachable.
The Domain Name Server (DNS) does not have a listing for the website's domain.
There might be a typing error in the address.
If this is an HTTPS (secure) address, click Tools, click Internet Options, click Advanced, and check to be sure the SSL and TLS protocols are enabled under the security section.

Siemens SpeedStream 4200 Error 102 Modem is hooked up and installed. All lights are on. Tried disconnecting for 15 seconds and reconnecting. Has been working previously. No noticeable changes since...


Hi
If you are using the google chrome browser, there are a number of issues that would cause that error.
I would try testing with another browser to see if you can connect. ( IE, firefox, opera.)
if you can get to the net with another browser, google has posted this info.

Encountering this problem following your first restart after installing Privoxy (which requires changing G-Chrome's proxy settings).
If, after installing Privoxy, you elected not to have it load on system startup, manually re-loaded Privoxy. Simply reconfigure Privoxy to load on startup and the problem should be corrected.
