Question about Microsoft Windows Vista Ultimate Edition

1 Answer

Vista website not found

Hi,

I checked the connections and as far as I can see it is not set up to use a proxy, but to make sure how would I know that? In the Connections tab of IE Options it says to click on settings to set up a proxy, but the settings is 'greyed out' so I cannot choose it.

Good to know there is no proxy.Because if there was one that might be the cause of the problem.You have to reset IE back to defaults.Go to the menu bar for IE click Tools,Internet Options,then go to the Advance tab,and click reset.

I can't get my LAN settings to automatically detect settings, box will not check.


Reset your proxy settings
Proxy servers, or proxies, act as intermediary servers between a Web browser and the Internet. According to Microsoft's website, proxies are mainly used by networks in companies to enhance the security and speed of their network connection.
Proxy servers can also be used to log Internet usage, mask the network address of a server or to apply global restrictions to a network.
Internet Explorer is set to automatically detect proxy servers by default.
You can reset the Internet Explorer proxy settings to their default settings from the "Internet Options" configuration.

I have found the easiest way to do this is to add the menu to the top of a webpage.
Create the menu tab on your homepage right click in the top toolbar you should see a number of toolbar options select the menu tab which will add File Edit View Favorites Tools and Help
Click on tools option then from the drop down list Internet Options
Select the "Connections" tab, and click the "LAN Settings" button.
Delete the proxy server address and port from the "Proxy Server" settings and clear the "Use a proxy server for your LAN" check box.


Clear the check box beside the "Automatically detect settings" and "Use automatic configuration script" options in the "Automatic Configuration" section of the "LAN Settings" dialog window. Click "OK."
Click "Apply" and then "OK" to save these changes and close the "Internet Options" dialog window.
Close all Internet Explorer browser windows for these changes to take effect.

Normally this is caused by a bad Proxy Settings. I have included the instructions below to assist you:

To check your Firefox proxy settings:

  2. Select the Advanced panel.
  3. Select the Network tab.
  4. In the Connection section, click Settings....
  5. Change your proxy settings:
    • If you don't connect to the Internet through a proxy (or don't know whether you connect through a proxy), select No Proxy.
    • If you connect to the Internet through a proxy, compare Firefox's settings to another browser's (Such as Internet Explorer. See Microsoft's guide to proxy settings).
  1. Close the Connection Settings window.
  2. Click OK to close the Options window

Cant sign in to yahoo messenger


I believe this problem is caused by a proxy error.  Does Internet Explorer connect to the Internet OK? Do you or your network provider use a proxy? Or a local proxy program such as Privoxy? If no, make sure that Yahoo is set to connect "Firewall with no proxies".  If yes, set Yahoo Messenger to use HTTP proxies.

Check internet explorer connections to see if you have configured IE to connect to the internet with a proxy.Usually if IE is configured to use a proxy,it affects firefox too.
