Internet Is Connected, But Not Working


Internet is connected, but not working. How do i fix this? Okay so my computer had a virus that pretended to be an anti-virus program by saying that i had tonnes of viruses and prompting me to buy and download something to get rid of it. Whenever i used internet explorer or mozilla to access a site it would not let me and on the page it would say that it was unsafe to do unless i bought and downloaded their program. I found out that if i went to my mozilla browser and selected 'no proxy' in the internet settings that i could browse without being redirected to their fake block website that told me i had to buy their program to be safe and browse. So then i was able to download a program to remove the virus, which worked and i no longer had the virus. The next day or so i was able to browse as per normal without any interruptions just like i was before. However, the next day i used my computer again. Still no sign of the virus but even though i was connected to the internet i could not access anything apart from mozilla again. When i used internet explorer or google chrome it would just say could not be displayed and msn messenger wouldn't connect either. So basically i'm connected to the internet, but nothing is actually working apart from mozilla. I'm not sure if mozilla being the only program working is related to selecting 'no proxy' on internet settings when i had the virus. Note that the virus is gone, and i was able to use msn and such after this but now i cannot again apart from mozilla. Does anyone have an idea of what could have happened and how to fix this?

Laptop Says Connected To Internet But It Is Not

My laptop says connecetd to the internet but it is not. Right now i am on my brothers mac, and it has a perfect internet connection. My laptop is right beside me and it won't connect to the internet. On the bottom (i think it's called a task bar. ) It says the signal connection is "excellent" but i can't connect. It says it is running 54. 0 mbps. I have no idea what that means. I am not a computer whiz so answers simply. Maybe step by step instructions.

Computer Reboots When Connected To Internet

So, my brother has had several computer issues in the past, and all of them have been fixed by reinstalling windows and wiping his computer, great. Its getting a little old now though. His current issue now is that his computer will reboot the second it logs in to his user account, i let it run and reboot and just happened to catch it while it was working, went to the internet to download some stuff that might help fix the issue and it began rebooting again. I took out his wireless antenna and its working now but he needs internet, what could be the problem with it and how can i fix it?

I'm running avg, disc clean-up and disc defragger right now, just for the heck of it, not sure if it will help, and i've gone in and looked for weird processes and downloads and files, but that's about all i know how to do and it all looks normal, and avg hasn't found anything malicious.

Hack Into Computer That Is Not Connected To Internet

Is it possible to hack into a computer that is not connected to the internet? The reason i'm asking is because my best friend is going back to college in a few days and is dorming with one other guy. He's in the journalism program and is a bit paranoid that his roommate (who is in the same level in the program) might steal his documents and whatnot. There's wi-fi internet connection available in the dorm, but my friend does not utilize it; he says he 'only' uses his computer for typing up articles. I don't know how true that is, but whatever. So is it possible for the roommate to "hack" into my friend's computer (via another computer) even if my friend's not connected to the internet?

Phone Ringing When Connected To Internet

My phone will not stop ringing every time i connect to the internet, how do i get it to stop? Every time i try and do anything with the internet the phone begins to ring, and it is only with my laptop. Any other laptop and nothing happens. It only just stated about an hour ago, and when i answer the phone nothing happens. I've checked my task manager for any unknown programs running and no other processes happen as soon as the phone starts to ring. It wouldn't be so bad if i didn't lose connection every time the phone rang.

Internet Speed Slows Down When Network Adapter Is Connected

Why does my internet speed slow down when my sister plugs her network adapter in her computer? I have a wireless-n linksys adapter and she has a wireless-g netgear adapter. When her adapter is not connected to her computer, my internet is super fast. When she plugs it in, my internet speed slows down way too much. Sometimes it doesn't even load up any webpages. Our main computer in the basement is connected to a wireless-n router and i connect to our network called "linksys". She connects to the same router but her connection is "ng_profile"? I don't get it, i just want my speeds to be normal.

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?

No Scanner Connected

Why does printer and computer both say no scanner connected? I have new usb cable. Answer:-

Is this a multifunction printer? I assume so, since you say the printer indicated no scanner connected. Disconnect the printer and delete it completely from the system. Reboot, and then re-install it from the install disk. Don't connect anything until the instructions tell you to do so. That should take care of the problem.

2 Scanners Connected To Pc

Can i safely have 2 scanners connected to my pc ? One is an hp one is brothers. Answer:- it would be unwise to do so. Having them connected is not a problem as i myself use a dedicated film scanner and a flatbed scanner but i never ever have them both switched on at the same time. Scanners by default are the most volatile of accessories and the possibility of preference conflicts from running two together is precarious.

How To Know Which Sp You Are Connected To Using Public Wifi ?

When you connect public wifi how can you tell which sp you're connected to? How can you tell which service provider (isp i mean) you're connected to when you do public wifi? For instance, i know starbucks & mcdonalds in the us use at&t. But how about when you're at some other location? Short of asking the workers who the isp is. They probably wouldn't know anyway.

Laptop Router Not Connected

I just added a wep key to my router, because someone near me was constantly leeching it. Everyone else was able to connect to the newly secured network fine (on ipod touches, and laptops running vista and 7). When i tried to connect to the network on my laptop, it says that it connected, but next to the wireless name, it says in big bold letters "not connected", but the option in the bottom right of the window only allows for disconnecting, because it thinks that it is connected. The other strange thing, is that under network connections, the wireless connection icon also says not connected. If i right click on the icon, the "status" option is greyed out, so i can't click it. And finally, if i try to "repair" the connection, it disables/enables it fine, but says that it was unable to connect to the wireless network, and that the repair failed. I have a feeling that the problem has to do with a service, because my laptop has a tendency to shut off random services, but i have no idea where to start my search of the faulty service. I'm running on windows xp home edition sp3
My wireless adapter is a atheros ar5007eg
