The easiest thing to try would be to restore from the last good point. have you done that?

let know also if you recently installed anything.

if not, we can try to renew the TCP/IP

ipconfig /release
ipconfig /renew
ipconfig /flushdns

Im trying to fix workin offline i cant get it to go away

Also, "Work Offline" is a choice on the browser menu. Look at the "File" dropdown menu (Explorer and Firefox) and if its checked, uncheck it!

"Offline" means an active network is not connected to the computer. You do not have a working internet cable or wireless connection.
It could also be (in the case of Windows) that the drivers are messed up, and that is a can of worms, especially since the most helpful things are online.
Is another computer able to use the same internet connection that you are using? This is a fix that may take a long time of questions and answers because it involves so many breakable points.

If the browser shows working offline and wireless is connected fine then it could be an issue where work offline is checked in the browser.
In internet explorer 6 its found on File in the menu, if work offline is already checked, check it again to remove the check mark and then try, if its internet explorer 7 its found on tools, the same steps and in firefox under file,
Also try this step as well, if its internet explorer go to tools-internet options-and in internet options-go to connections tab-there is dial up and networking box-remove the dial up connections from the box-and check the one never dial a connection

also check the firewalls and antivirus programs, post your results.

thank you
