My laptop is frequently having trouble detecting a connection to the internet

I have a dial up connection to the internet and I have frequently been receiving messages that I am not connected to the internet while I am in the middle of browsing web pages and I know I am in fact connected to the internet. One example last week was when I was about to confirm an online payment to a credit card company and after I hit confirm the message popped up saying that the webpage could not be viewed because I was most likely not connected to the internet. I am encountering these problems in both IE7 and Firefox. Please help! This is getting frustrating.

    I know that does happen on some sites to prevent theft but it happens to me on any site at all not just when I am trying to view online statements and such. I was just attempting to bring up the yahoo main page and it said I wasn't connected to the internet but I am connected otherwise I couldn't be typing this message. Thanks for your help.

Some of these websites limit the time port is open.. payment gateway will sometime cut the connection to protect the customer from potential identity theft... in a way this is good.. but it is frustrating for dial-up customers.

I have constant trouble with my toshiba laptop using windows vista constantly losing the dial up internet connection.

If your telephone line may have disturbances from any electronic devices at any point then this could happen. Try moving other devices especially speakers, mobile phones and TV near the modem. Does your laptop wifi enabled one? Do you use telephone in that line? If so use a line filter with two out. could you give your laptop model no.? There is not enough details to pinpoint the problem

The wifi detect but not detecting the internet

Hello. 1_Check if the router connected to the internet by the LAN cable. 2_Check if the router connected properly to the internet by dial up your connection information. If all of these are correct that mean the mac address on the router don't match your laptop this is for the security of your WLAN network.

Depending on your ISP (Internet Service Provider) you can get any login software needed from them. Would need more clarification on your ISP and internet type (DSL,Cable, Dial-up). In almost all cases you do not need software to connect to the internet through your ISP just a compatible Browser (IE, Google Chrome, Firefox, etc.). If you have a dial-up (or DSL whcih requires PPPOE) connection you may have to reconfigure your settings under: Start, Control Panel, Internet Options, Connections, "Add" button, check mark "Automatically Detect" (and any Username and Password that may be necessary), click OK, then Apply, then OK. Then check if you have a connection. Other problems can be related to you router if you have one.

I was given a think pad 2647 and I can't get on the internet.

It may not detect it automatically. You will need to configure your dial up modem if you are trying to connect to the internet that way. Go into the network connections and go through the wizard there. It should ask you for the telephone number to dial for internet access so have that handy. If you don't get that box, you went to the wrong area.

Laptop wireless connection

assuming you have set up the router to enable DHCP which automatically detects pc's and assigns an automatic ip address, and assuming you are using XP and not Vista, although the workthrough is similair; go to open internet explorer>tools>internet options>connections tab and ensure that never dial a connection is ticked, then apply and exit IE

Next go to control panel>network connections, double click your wireless connection icon, select the TCP/IP line and click properties, then make sure obtain an ip address automatically is ticked, apply it ok, then open IE again and click the refresh button a few times.
