Try this:

Go to "Start", "Settings", "Control Panel", "Internet Options", "General" and complete "user agent (requires browser restart" by selecting:
"Default (same as windows XP)" or
"Same As Pocket PC" or
"Windows CE".

I selected "default" and was off and running.

I can't get internet connection even though it says my connection strength is "excellent."


The netbook is working fine. The WiFi connection or SPID may require you to login as in it is a protected signal. The "Excellent" means that you are receiving an excellent signal from the router. What you want is internet access which is upstream of that. Try a different SPID or connection.

Internet explorer not working


Check whether your internet connection is working properly or not. To check this ping to your DNS Server of your internet service provider. If you get a reply from the DNS Server then the problem is with your browser, if so then install another browser like Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome. If you dont get a reply from DNS server contact your ISP and resolve the Issue with them.

Internet explorer cannot be found...


Check if you maybe have some IP and DNS settings to your WL network adapter:

Control panel
Network connections
Right to your WL adapter and click Properties
On the end of the list in the middle you'll find:
Internet protocol (TCP/IP)

Double-click it and set IP and DNS to Automatically. . . .
(OK, and than, again OK).

Check Internet Explorer settings:
Control panel
Internet Options
Click on Security Tab
Set ALL zones to DEFAULT
Click Apply and OK

Regards.
