This could be only one of two things:

1) Your internet is OK, but the page you are trying to access
is bad

2) Your internet is not connected, but Internet Explorer is loading
MSN from an old cache on your hard drive.

If a single page is bad but you Internet is connection is OK,
then you should be able to get most other pages.
Try:
www.google.com
www.wikipedia.org
www.yahoo.com
www.ebay.com
www.microsoft.com
etc...

If, on the other hand you get nothing but MSN,
you have no internet connection !

===============================

To test it out:

Go to the DOS(like) command prompt, by clicking:

START => All Programs => Accessories => Command Prompt.

At the command prompt type: ipconfig /all

Look at the report, find the network adapter you are using
(if you have more than one, e.g. LAN and wireless)

and look for the value of the "IP Address"

This should reflect the address assigned by your Internet
provider, or the address of you personal router if you have
one:

=============================================
A typical router address = 192.168.1.1, for example
A direct connection could be = 24. 153.14.1 or any other #

BUT

if the IP address is all zeros = 0.0.0.0

then you have no connection to the Internet.
=====================================
If you have no connection (0.0.0.0) then type:

ipconfig / release
ipconfig / renew
ip config / all

If this does not fix the problem, i.e. return a non-zero
IP address,

Run the network setup wizard from the control panel to
repair your network settings.

Also reset your external router (turn it on and off)
if you are using one, and check with your IP provider
to make sure that your account is still valid.
(They will disconnect you if you owe them money
or if they have made a clerical error)

====
If you do have a non-zero IP address, but your
WEB browser still does not connect,

type at the command prompt:

1) Ping www.google.com
2) Ping 72.14.205.104

Compare the results.

If the first PING does not work, but the second one does,
then your address for the DNS (domain name server)
is not setup correctly. You can reach Google directly,
but you have a problem resolving the GOOGLE name to
its binary address, which is what a DNS does, but you
are not reaching the DNS server.

At this point you may want to contact your IP service
provider (tech support line) and he will walk you through
repairing your Internet connection, or send out a tech
in the case of a hardware problem.

Hope this helps,
please rate my answers,

Internet explorer keeps telling me cannot display webpage


First check whether you are connected to the internet through a proxy or directly. Then check internet option connection lan setting option maybe those should be kept to automatic or point to the right server. Then in the internet explorer go to the internet option , advanced and click reset button that should do the trick. Also if this doesnot work download firefox and install it. when you can see pages in firefox that means everything is okay and it is problem with the browser. replace your browser with new ie8 and thats all

When connected to the internet, my acer won't display anywebpages.


There is a difference of have your machine connected to the internet and you being connected to your network...If you are with Verizon, Comcast, or folks like that, give them a shout and they will take over your machine and connect you in no time. Besides that is what you are paying for when you pick your ISP (internet SERVICE provider)
Good luck my friend,

Somebody installed windows live on my computer i now have msn as my desk top i want to go back to google classic


Hi. I am assuming you are talking about the page that Internet Explorer goes to when you first open it. If that is the case, try this:

Windows Vista (all versions)

1. Open Internet Explorer by clicking the Start button getopencontent.aspx?assetid=4f6cbd09-148c-4dd8-b1f2-48f232a2fd33&documentset=en-us&renderkey=xml, and then clicking Internet Explorer.
2. Navigate to the webpage you would like to set as the home page.
3. Click the arrow to the right of the Home button getopencontent.aspx?assetid=4aa01e82-2732-4ac7-b246-a06c904f2c2c&documentset=en-us&renderkey=xml, and then click Add or Change home page.
In the Add or Change Home Page dialog box, do one of the following:
• To make the current webpage your only home page, click Use this webpage as your only home page.
• 4. To start a home page tab set or to add the current webpage to your set of home page tabs, click Add this webpage to your home page tabs.
• To replace your existing home page or home page tab set with the webpages you currently have open, click Use the current tab set as your home page. This option will only be available if you have more than one tab open in Internet Explorer.
5. Click Yes to save your changes.

Windows XP (all versions)

1. Open Internet Explorer by clicking the Start button, and then clicking Programs or All Programs, and clicking Internet Explorer.
2. Navigate to the webpage you would like to set as the home page.
3. On the pull-down menus at the top of the window, click the Tools menu and choose Internet Options (if the Tools is not showing at the top of the page, you can access it using the Tools pull-down menu located on the right side of the window).
4. To make the current webpage your home page, click the “Use Current” button.
5. Click OK to save your changes.

Hope this helps!

Internet exp message cannot display the webpage - my internet is connected


If you can see other web sites and it's just that one particular site you are having a problem with then it is most likely a fault of the site.
"cannot display webpage" is usually a sign that the site is either having data base problems or has exceded its bandwidth.
If you simply cannot get to the site then it maybe a problem with your security settings being set too high and Internet Explorer is blocking the site.

Internet Explorer cannot display the web page


Could be a vista compatibility problem.
check Linksys website for updated driver and or connection manager.

check that you still have permission in firewall.

remove the software of the usb wireless adapter,reboot ,then re install.

just a couple of thoughts
good luck
