Not getting web pages, why and how does this happen for no reason? Also, why do I always get disconnected?

    need more information such as internet type.

    This is common if you have a slow connection though. IE has a built-in timer it expects to hear a response from the web page from to start the download. If it doesn't hear it in the alotted time, it will "time out" and tell you the page is bad or whatever.

    If you are continually getting disconnected, you may have line noise in your phone line or someone keeps calling you and setting off call waiting. Also there is a setting on dial-up networking telling it to auto-disconnect after so many minutes. turn that off.

Retrieve a fail to send email from a web page?

Probably not. The email could have failed or numerous reasons. I always CTRL+A and CTRL+C before I post or submit any form online because things don't always work as planned and you have no control over someone else's site.

You could have been clicking on a mailto link and didn't have a default email client set. This would give you a MAPI error.

It could be that Outlook Express was setup as your default mail client but it's not setup to use, so it couldn't open the default folders and your email failed for this reason.

If you use an application on your desktop, then set it to be the default email client. If not, and you only use web-based email, then copy/paste to your email client instead of clicking submit.

Websites should send server-based email and these issues would be eliminated. Also, using mailto, allows spammers to harvest email addresses on websites. Although it can be written to make it difficult, most people don't make the effort.

Myspace and twitter is being blocked by k9 web protection and i want to get on it but do i bypass the k9 web protection

Well have you installed K9 or your parents? :D. If they did I m sorry to say that its better for your own good ha ha. If not you can configure it to allow myspace and twitter. But still I will not tell you how to bypass since I don't know whether you are a kid.
If you have not already logged in, enter your administrator password at the prompt and click OK. From the Setup menu, click Web Categories to Block. By unticking the tick for social networking (if it is ticked) you will be allowed to access any social network. Save the configurations.
Click URL key words Check whether those URLs have been blocked (full url and / or by words. You can clear the saved settings by allowing them.
There is another way of unblocking the site.
To override a blocked Web site: 1. On the Category Blocked page, choose an option under Allow This Site. The following figure shows an example. 2. From the Allow access to list, click one of the following options: • for 5 minutes to allow temporary access to this site for the next five minutes. • for 15 minutes to allow temporary access to this site for the next 15 minutes. • for 30 minutes to allow temporary access to this site for the next 30 minutes. • for 60 minutes to allow temporary access to this site for the next 60 minutes. • permanently to always allow access to this site. If you choose this option, one of the following happens: • If the Web site was blocked because of its category, the Web site is placed in the always allow list • If the Web site was blocked because it was in the always block list, the Web site is removed from the always block list. 3. Click Allow This Site. 4. You are required to enter your K9 Web Protection administrator password to confirm the action. This is how the "Block access by time of the day" works.
K9 Web Protection enables you to restrict the time of day users can access Web sites. If there are specific times when you do or do not want your family accessing the Web, this feature assists you in enforcing that policy. To restrict Web browsing access times: 1. Start K9 Web Protection 2. From the top menu bar, click Setup. 3. If you have not already logged in, enter your administrator password at the prompt and click OK. 4. From the Setup menu, click Time Restrictions. You have the following options: Unrestricted NightGuard Custom.
Just select the Unrestricted or modify Custom to re adjust the settings.
Adding a web site exception (Advanced). This is how its done.
You can create exceptions for any of the following reasons: ? Web sites that do not belong to any category ? Web sites you know your children access frequently, so you can make sure you enforce the appropriate action (allow or block) ? To allow access to specific Web sites that belong to a category that you otherwise want to block To set up Web site exceptions: 1. Start K9 Web Protection 2. From the top menu bar, click Setup. 3. If you have not already logged in, enter your administrator password at the prompt and click OK. 4. From the Setup menu, click Web Site Exceptions. Then exceptions can be added.
To remove the exception just remove the setting or add it to Always Allow.
To override a block and access blocked Web pages, you must enter the administrator password you configured when you installed K9 Web Protection.
Special cases.
If a Web page was blocked because it was on the always block list or because it is classified in a category you chose to block, you can ask Blue Coat to review the Web site’s rating as follows: ? You can request Blue Coat associate the Web site with more categories ? You can request Blue Coat reclassify the Web site, if you believe the categorization is incorrect.

My interenet always works all day but then every night around 1130 my internet always disconnects me what could it be?

Are you on a wireless connection? Are you sure you're not connected to a neighbor's router instead of your own, and he's shutting it down when he goes to bed? Unless your ISP shuts down for some reason every night, I'd suspect that's what's happening.
That's just a guess, but you might want to look into this article to ensure you're connecting to your own network. Also see links on this page.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

hi im josh in cebu phils. may i help you?
Chapter 10: Troubleshooting Internet Connections Internet Connection Problem Overview Failure to connect to the Internet is a very common reason why people request service for their computers. We'll cover two main types of Internet connections here: dial-up and high speed. Each type has its own problems, with some overlap. The problems can be put into main categories:
  • You cannot connect to the Internet Service Provider (ISP).
  • You can connect to the ISP, but you can't open Web pages and/or use e-mail.
  • You can connect to the ISP and open Web pages and use e-mail, but your connection is very slow, and/or you get disconnected frequently.
There are many causes of each of these problems, too many to cover them all here. We will attempt to cover common problems here. However, as is the case with other problems, there are times that everything is set correctly, and the hardware is OK, but Internet connections still don't work. When this happens, it might be because of OS corruption serious enough to require a clean install, or it might be one of those Windows things that happens for no real reason, and sometimes resolves itself with no real reason either.
Note We don't cover wireless Internet specifically in this book, although some of the information in this chapter does apply to it.
When setting up or troubleshooting a connection, there are some simple rules to follow, as we discuss in the following sections.
Basic Connection Problems
  • Call the ISP first: There could be an outage in your area. There is no point in troubleshooting before you rule out an outage.
  • ISP settings: Every ISP has its own requirements and specifications for connection configuration. Make sure you follow them.
  • Username and password: Many connection problems could be avoided if users always used the correct username and password. This means that typos must be avoided and that the Caps Lock shouldn't be toggled on. In addition, some ISPs require you to enter your entire e-mail address (such as name@ as a username, and some require only the username good luck
