Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Web Browsing I curious as to why I cannot browse certain websites. I recently bought a HP Pavillion dv6885se and downloaded all the Vista updates. At the end of all the downloads I noticed a device not working symbol on the Microsoft 6to4 driver. I uninstalled and reinstalled the driver as per Microsoft Tech. Since downloading the updates I have note been able to browse certain sites such as Yahoo, Google, Gamespot and various other sites or download up-dates from HP. I can connect to HP but, I cannot browse and download any driver updates. The web page gets hung up and times out. Please advise.

Stopping browsing history

Step 1:
Stop Web History on Internet Explorer b> Every time you visit a website, the web address, date and time of your visit is recorded in your Web browser history. The length of time this information is saved varies depending on what browser is used. If privacy is a concern, popular browsers such as Firefox and Internet Explorer offer enhanced privacy features that allow you to prevent your browser history from being stored.

Update your Web browser to the latest version of the product. Browser updates often include important security patches. Automatically clear your browser history each time you exit. In Firefox, this option is located under "Tools" and "Options." Select the "Privacy" tab and check the box marked "Always clear my private data when I close Firefox." If you're using Internet Explorer, click on "Tools" and "Internet Options" and check "Delete browsing history on exit." Use private browsing if your browser supports it. Private browsing prevents your browser from storing any information about your browsing history, including cookies, temporary Internet files and history. Pressing CTRL+Shift+P on your keyboard will activate private browsing mode in both Firefox and Internet Explorer. It can also be accessed in Firefox by clicking "Tools" and selecting "Start Private Browsing," and in Internet Explorer by clicking "Safety" and selecting "InPrivate Browsing." Private browsing must be activated each time you open your browser.

I recently purchased this router and the setup was fine, however I am only able to view certain web pages. Google works fine, and yahoo mail allows the log in page to come up, but doesn't allow me to...

Router with limited/controlled/restricted access to websites???? New one. Surprised really; I must submit.

Such scenario only happens with Corporate companies' internet access.
In any case, maybe you should try "private browsing" or "browsing incognito" in your chosen web browser and see if access is still denied/restricted to sites online.

Another approach is to try browsing using a VPN (virtual private network) and see what happens.

Last option, you may have to contact your Network service provider company (those that allocated internet data access to you) and lodge a complaint.

If all these don't help, either you return the router ASAP and request a replacement/new one instead or you are having network signal/bandwidth issue in your area.

Windows XP

It should have come with the 32. For dual boot on this machine, go in and set up XP on the same partition as Vista. When the machine starts up it will go to a screen that allows you to choose which op system you want. You shouldn't, but if you run into conflicts you will need to create a separate partition for the two op systems.
