First, disable Windows firewall and uninstall all antivirus and antitrojans you have in your computer.
Try to access the network again.
If it's succeed, then you probably found the culprit.
Install again, one by one, testing between installs to find the EXACT culprit.
If it's not succeed, probably the problem is on the configuration of you computer.
Let me know what happened.

Unable to connect to netflix


There are a number of things to consider when you can't get an Internet connection.


1) are you connected to a network that is connected to the Internet? You connect to any network either through a wired or wireless connection. If wired is the Ethernet cable connected to a router (or modem) from your Internet provider? If wireless, are you logged into your wireless router or hot spot? Nothing will happen if you aren't connected to a network that is, itself, connected to the Internet.

2) If you are connected, is the device to which you are connected (wired or wireless) itself connected to the Internet? One quick way to fix it if it isn't is to simply turn it off, wait about 15 seconds, and turn it back on. Then turn your computer off, wait 15 seconds, and turn it back on. This is a "network reset" and fixes Internet problems about 80% of the time.

3) Finally, if you are connected and the device to which you are connected is itself connected to the Internet, are your network setting suitable for the Internet. To fix these problems go to Control Panel, Internet Options, Advanced, Reset. Resetting the Internet settings often clears up the problem.

4) Once you do these things your Internet should be okay, provided that you are receiving an Internet connection from your Internet Service Provider (ISP). Before calling them and checking you might like to borrow another persons computer or have them come over and see if they can connect. If they can you will probably need to take your computer to a shop as there are probably technical issues you are not going to be able to resolve easily. If they cannot connect then the problem is usually in the modem/router provided by your ISP or in your account (you'd be surprised how many people don't pay their bill and are surprised when they can no longer get on the Internet. It's funny how that works.)

Only one user account is connecting to the internet?


This problem is usually due to parental controls or user application privileges/ network privileges.
The account that can connect to the internet should be the "administrator". In "Control Panel" access "user accounts" and check the privileges. Enable full (or the ones you want) access. "Parental controls" will block internet connections, check to make sure this is disabled or the correct level is enabled.

My toshiba laptop does not work on a lan. The icon


When you look at the Manage Network Connections link on the Network and Sharing Center you do not see
Local Area Connection?
Do you see Wireless Network connection?
You need to check the device manager to see if the card has been disabled.

It should show two entries with no red or yellow marks. One for wireless (WLAN) and one for wired (Ethernet)

Everytime I try to log into facebook it another page says expired


well, the connection timer has timed out, It has to do with internet connection speed and consistency. If your connection to the site gets dropped, it's because the website doesn't hold it's connection open too long waiting for your computer to connect to the site, which ties up the server/network. once the timeout ends, your connection expires. Basically your computer only has a certain amount of time to connect to the site, if it doesn't, the connection expires. And Facebook is hugely popular. hope this helps.

No internet connection


Hi,
I think the reason for this is that maybe your ISP's server might be down or there might be no connectivity from their side.For me, a good tool that works is Windows Live Messenger's Connection Troubleshooter.It helps most of the time.Run it and keep clicking on repair till you get your connectivity.
You can download Windows Live Messenger from here :

Hope this helps.Tell me if you need more help.
