Connect To Internet Other Than Firefox

I'm having a few connection problems at the moment. In general, i can't connect to the internet using any programs on my computer other than firefox. An example of a message i've gotten is "could not connect to server. If your internet connection is up your server might be down".

Internet Explorer Doesn't Connect To Internet

My internet explorer doesn't connect to internet?

Answer:- nowhere near enough information to give any meaningful suggestions beyond, "have you tried turning it off and on again?" Try it with both computer and modem/router. Other information you could've included would be:

Do other browsers work on the same computer? Operating system? Ie version? Has this always happened, or is it something that's just started happening?

How Do You Connect To Internet ?

My brother can connect to the internet using only the ethernet wire plugged into the ethernet slot built in his motherboard. So i decided to take the wire and plug it in to the slot of my gigabyte ga-965p-s3 (right next to the 2 usb slots). But nothing happen, i can't connect to the internet. I check the network connection and see there is only a "1394 connection". Do i need an ethernet card ? Or the mobo already has it ?

Cannot Connect To Internet

I am working on a friends computer because it wont connect to the internet. Here is what it says when i try to trouble shoot the problem: windows could not detect any wired or wireless network cards installed on your machine. If you are connecting to the internet through your phone line using a dial-up connection you will need to contact your internet service provider. Otherwise please make sure that the network card drivers are installed properly, or contact the manufacturer of your personal computer for further assistance.

How Do I Connect To The Internet?

The other day, my computer crashed, so i searched my desk and found the windows xp professional os cd that came with my computer, so i booted it off of the disk, wiped my hard drive, and reinstalled windows. However, i don't have any of the 3rd party software that programmers like to add before putting them on the shelves. I have no volume control, no internet connection, no nothing. I am on a different computer right now obviously but i need mine for school and it definitely helps to have access to the internet. I have no idea what to do, and im looked at as the "tech savvy" person in my family. So any advice would definitely be helpful.

Any patches or fixes out there. A link will do. Just don't understand why is only does it in firefox. Other videos that are on my hdd have no lag.

Firefox Untrusted Connection

What to do when firefox says "untrusted connection" on Im on firefox, my facebook has worked before , and a few minutes ago for the first time, i saw this message: "this connection is untrusted, you have asked firefox to connect, securely to login., but we can't confirm that your connection is secure. Normally, when you try to connect securely, sites will present trusted identification to prove that you are going to the right place. However, this site's identity can't be verified. If you usually connect to this site without problems, this error could mean that someone is trying to impersonate the site, and you shouldn't continue. " Ive tried logging in like 5 times, and this always keeps popping up!

Internet Connect Then Disconnect

When i try to connect to the internet it connect then disconnect then reconnect and so on. Can anybody tell how to resolve this?

Answer:- i am assuming that you are using wifi and a router. This might be interference from a cordless phone or a neighbor who has a router using the same wifi channel. There are 11 channels to choose from in the router. Go in there and change the channel. Your user guide for your make and model will have the instructions for this. If you don't have a user guide download it from the maker's website. I you are not using wifi, then i must say the problem is either with your modem or the internet provider is having trouble. In both cases you need to talk with the provider.

Psp Cannot Connect To Internet

My psp can not connect to my internet, (security not supported). A while back i got a psp and a wireless router. So here is where my issue begins. I invited a friend over for the night, he brought his laptop over and began to set it up to the internet. Next thing i know my internet now has a password that neither of us know and he apparently changed the security settings on my router. Before he came to my house, my internet was called (blenkins wireless. Something like that). Then when he connects my wireless is now called robot vaio connection. I just need to know how i can get my psp working again? Am i going to have to buy another 30$ wireless router?

How Do I Connect A Computer To Internet?

I'm trying to set up a computer to the internet, since it's going to be used for storing all my music and itunes stuff. It's the same type of computer as my main one (hp pavilion dv1000), but instead of saying "wireless network connection" when i put the mouse over the internet connection icon, it says "wireless network connection 2. " I don't know if that makes a difference, but i can't connect it to the internet. It's right next to my main computer, who's signal strength is very good, but it says that there's no wireless networks in range. Is there any way to fix that? I tried right clicking and repairing it, but it stopped at "connecting to the wireless network. "

Programs Cannot Connect To Internet

This problem has started ever since i tried upgrading my messenger to 10. Since it said it was blocked by a firewall (even though it's listed as an exception) i had to go to the messenger support page and download the actual file instead of the installer. Now my anti-virus program won't update, i can't connect to messenger, and i still can't use the messenger installers. I have done multiple scans and it is not a virus, and i have even gone so far as to disable the windows firewall, and my av firewall to no avail. What is going on?

Why Can't I Connect To The Internet?

I have a toshiba satellite m105-s3041laptop, a westell 6100g dsl modem and a netgear wgr614v9 wireless router. I recently formatted my laptop and reinstalled windows xp (pro sp2). All went well. I didn't have sound, but the drivers on toshiba's website fixed that. Now, i can't connect to my dsl modem, nor can i access the internet through the wireless router. When i click on my router to connect, it is at strong signal, but after i click it says windows can't connect and the router may no longer be in range. I can click to access my neighbors' wireless routers and the network key screen comes up for theirs. The router works because i can connect our other laptop to it without a problem, so therefore the dsl modem is working as well. What can i do?

My dad did get a new router which is netgear and it connects to his other laptop because anyone can connect to it with the password. But for some reason mine doesn't work. At first when i connected to it there was an x next to it and it said your settings do not allow you to connect to this router. So i problem shot it and it said cannot connect to hidden network of (name of network) so i kept trying and configured the wlan settings so there wasn't an x and i could press connect. So i did and it said connecting but then it stopped and came up with the trouble shoot page again. How do i get the internet to work on my laptop!
