The first thing I'd try is booting to the safe mode with networking and see if you can access the page. If you can, then the problem is most likely a firewall issue blocking that web page.

Acer Aspire 5733 Wireless connection lost


Check the wireless router and high-speed modem.

If the two are not powered on, or if the Ethernet cable connected the two is not completely inserted into both connection ports, you are unable to access the Internet on the Acer Aspire One laptop computer.


Activate the wireless Internet connection on the laptop computer.

Right-click the wireless icon on the desktop, then choose "Enable" from the pop-up menu.


Without activating the wireless receiver on the Acer Aspire One, the laptop is unable to detect any wireless network.


Select the appropriate network you wish to connect to.


Your computer may be attempting to connect to a different Internet connection, preventing you from access the network you desire. Right-click the wireless icon, select "Search for available wireless networks," then choose the network you want to access.


Restart the computer.


The system may have booted and failed to detect the wireless receiver. Restarting the computer corrects this issue.


hope this helps

    Once signing on to AOL, I cannot stay connected for very long. I continually get kicked off; time and time again.


    You are having a problem with AOL's connectivity program. I have had nummerous issues with AOL's software and they do not seem to be too concerned about the few people that use it but are having issues with it. Just don't go hog wild and start messing with your router settings or your network. It is an AOL problem and not your computer. If you are having no problems just running Internet Explorer and are not getting kicked off then your answer lies with them. It got so bad for me, I use IE8 and access my AOL account off the internet browser. I've had AOL work in some computers and I have been unable to get it to work in others....there is always 100 different answers as to why but AOL is unable to take the blame and would rather pass it on to your network settings. The only thing I have been able to suggest that has worked is completely and thoroughly uninstall everything aol, and reinstall the software. Now, when I say completely uninstall, I mean download a program called "Revo Uninstaller", it is free from www.download.com. Just put the name in their search box and it will bring it up. run that program and choose option (4) when you want to unistall something. Make sure though if the program asks if you want to reboot, you answer no. You will reboot after you get rid of everything. Just answer yes to everything the program asks. Reboot.....re-install

    Dial-up Internet connection problem


    What model do you have. Perhaps whomever you purchased it from left the modem card out of it not knowing you would need it. There are 56k modem cards avail. that stick out of the PCMCIA slot. It is always an option. You can get them for like $5 on ebay.

    Cannot obtain internet


    if you already have an ethernet card installed in the laptop, then it should be fine. did you try rebooting the modem that you are hooking the laptop to? Sometimes with different ISPs that is one of the major issues.

    Dell Inspiron 5100 Internet Access


    Do you have your computer connected to your wifi network and your ethernet cable at the same time? Try having it connected to only one and see if that changes anything (ie, keep the wireless on and unplug the cable, or keep the cable plugged in and disable the wireless - if your laptop does not have a button/switch to turn off the wireless, you can do so by going to your network connections area from the control panel, right clicking on the wireless internet icon, and selecting disable.)
