Internet Explorer won't connect - but all other items connect to network

Q: Internet Explorer won't connect - but all other items connect to network

OS: Windows XP Pro SP3
Running Internet Explorer v.8
We have a computer at our office, that as of this morning, IE won't connect to any webpages. We've gone through the diagnostic tool - but the remedies it presents do not affect the problem.
Email (through Outlook 2007) connects fine and is receiving email fine.
All network drives can also be reached with no problems.

There is also no other computer in our office experiencing this problem.

I'd appreciate any suggestions anyone has. thx

Preferred Solution: Internet Explorer won't connect - but all other items connect to network

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A:Wireless Network Detected, but Internet Explorer Wont Connect to network in Win 7

Have you tried any other browsers? SeaMonkey is a good one to try if you don't have another. You can still keep IE as default and have SeaMonkey for backup for web pages that may not display correctly in IE or when you have access problems like you are having now. Being Mozilla-based, it uses a different rendering engine. For those web sites that support pipelining, you may also find that it is considerably faster.

Check your connection settings under Internet Options. In the LAN section, try toggling the "Automatically Detect Settings" option.

Hi, Have a problem there, Just reinstalled a fresh copy of Windows XP and WAS having problems having my Linksys 802B wireless card but now it finally detected.. just reinstalled the driver. Now another problem is.. when I double clciked INternet Exploroer, webpages dont load up. A box pops up tp ask if I want to workoffline or Connect. I click on COnnect, and the box then said " No connection to the internet is currently avaiable." The thing is that my wireless adapter is already connected to the DSL in perfect signal connections.

I then went to to Network COnnections folder, There are 3 icons, one says Incomming, the other 2 in the LAN or HighSpeed Internet section says 1394 Connection, and Wireless Network Connection Enabled. On the far left column, i clicked on Create a New Connection. I clicked the option of " Connect to the internet" , then "Setup my Connection Manually.". Then " Connect Using a broadband connection that is always on." .. because I dont need a login name and password. After clicking NEXT and Finished, ..nothing happened.. i clicked on IE again, and same thing pops up. I tried doing the 2nd option to let u enter the ID and password BUT disable the prompt to log in with a username and pw.. still dont work.
What gives? How do i fix this problem? Any help is appreciated. thnx.

Hey you guys ... i hope someone out there can help me out with this problem ... it has been a pain for a quite sometime.

I have 2 computers connect through a smc7004vbr router. Both computers are windows 2000. My problem is that computerA connection is fine. But computerB will get access to the internet after i reset my router and then i would lose the connection. At the time that the connection was lost computerB is still able to ping computerA, still have access to the shared files and vice versa. But computerB can't ping itself nor does it have internet connection. The only way i get back the connection is to reset the router but this would only last for an hour or less.

Have a USB wireless WiFi unit. To connect to the Internet. Have to disable the Local Area Connection. When connected to the Internet. If I enable the Local Area Connection. Unable to connect to the Internet. When I disable the LAC, the Internet connection is restablished. Using a D-Link boradband VPN router.

A:Wireless Network Connection will only connect to Internet if Lcl Area Connect disable

sounds about right! Your big issue will be the VPN, as it is frequently specifically
config'd to use a specific adaptor AND to force all tcp traffic thru that connection,
even though you want to do some trivial google.com search.

Consider using a Hardware Profile to define
1) a LAN connection environment (ie no WiFi)
2) a WiFi environment (w/o a LAN)

the choice occurs at boot time and the hardware is enabled/disabled per
the profile.

I have a lenovo u160 running windows 7, a couple of days ago it seemed my computer was infected with something, giving a series of security warnings I had not seen before (not av security suite). It slowed the computer down for a few minutes.

After closing these messages, there seemed to be no problem, but then my computer was no longer connect to the internet. It connects to our router/wireless network, but not to the internet.

I tried resetting and unplugging the router and the modem, but still no luck. We have two other computers on the same network that are connecting to both the network and the internet.

I tried running rkill and malwarebytes twice and no malicious items were detected.

I restored the computer to an earlier point (2-3 days earlier)

On the toolbar in the bottom right of the taskbar, it shows a 5 white signal bars, with a "!" inside a yellow triangle.
If I click on the network button it states it is "connected" to the network. It describes the connection as "excellent" (4-5/5 bars).

Above the display of the available networks, it states

"currently connected to:
Unidentified network
No Internet access"

I am not computer savvy and have not run into this problem before. Thanks for your time and help.

My browser is IE8. Window XP Home with SP2 (Sony VAIO Desktop PCV-RS420, Pentium-4, 2.8 Ghz, 512MB Ram). I am now unable to connect to the Internet. The network diagnostic for window XP kept saying to check firewall settings for HTTP(port 80), HTTPS(port 443), and FTP (port 21).  I don't know how to do that. I open the Window firewall settings on the Security Center page (Exception tab), it lists programs and services on the "Exception", ie, to not block incoming network connection from these programs or services, which include "Internet Explorer",on the list, which seems to be appropriate.  But my computer still will not connect to the Internet--very frustrating.  I  have done "System Restore" a few times to an earlier dates, thinking maybe the computer picked up some virus and the System restore function should temporarily resolve that issue.  But still no luck.   Finally, I tried connecting to a secured website with "HTTPS" in the address bar and the computer appeared to be successful to connect to these HTTPS sites, but it continued to refuse to connect to a regular website(i.e. with "HTTP" in its address bar).  Please help me resove these internet connection issues I would vey much appreciate.

A:Internet Explorer will not connect to HTTP, but will connect to HTTPS

<<My browser is IE8. Window XP Home with SP2...>>
May have nothing to do with your problem...but you really need to install SP3 and all critical updates since its issuance...that may take care of your problem, but even if it doesn't...your system will be less vulnerable.
Installing or reinstalling SP3... has been known to overcome various previous system problems.
Sounds to me like corruption affecting non-secure websites, so you may also want to reinstall IE8.

So most of my family works on laptops, but i have one old desktop that i haven't turned on in a while, but now I need to get it back connected to the internet for a bit.

I have a network cable running to it (most of my comps run on wireless but this one doesn't have a wireless card), and it connects to the network, but gives me the "limited to no activity" message. Last time I turned it off (a few months ago) it worked fine)

Troubleshooting so far (after rebooting/powercycling everything, of course)
1. connected the network cable to my laptop, after disconnecting the wireless. worked fine.
2. Tried "repair", could not renew
3. tried release/renew, error on renew "unable to contact your DHCP server.
4. tried DNS flush
5. did netsh dump
6. DHCP Client is started, and automatic
7. disabled and reenabled the NIC card (VIA Rhine II Fast Ethernet Adapter)

I wonder if anyone can help. We recently installed a new wireless router, and all the other computers in our house can access the internet. But for some reason I can only connect to the network, even though it says there's full connectivity.

I called the customer careline for our internet providers, and they said it was a problem with my computer settings, rather than the router. But they said they couldn't advise me any further unless I paid for it, hence my need to look for advice elsewhere....

OK, so I have an IP address, connected to Wireless network, can ping DNS Server, DHCP server, and Default Gateway. Tried the Winsock reset and the int ip reset. Also IPconfig release and renew. Haven't gone into the registry yet (Kinda nervous don't wanna mess anything else up. Need specific instructions). Uninstalled and reinstalled drivers (found online).

A:Can Connect to Network, Can't Connect to Internet

First off, can you get a wired connection working with those two computers? I presume that a wired connection is working, since you have a computer that is connecting, right?

First step would be to disable all encryption and MAC filtering on the router and get the wireless connected with no security. Then, add in WPA with a strong key for encryption when you get both of them running on the wireless without encryption.

I'm having a devil of a time with connecting my desktop computer.

The computer connects to the network fine, and other computer s in the house are connected to the internet, so it's not the modem or the connection.

I spent nearly an hour on the phone with Internode Support, even though this really isn't their problem, they were still nice enough to go through all the settings of the modem etc.

I read another post on here, while trying to look for the answer, and did the reset stuff in the admin command prompt, as recommended in another post here, and reboot ed the computer, but no joy.

I'd be very grateful if anyone can think of anything to try, this is driving me mad...

OK, so, rather bizarrely, tonight, after fussing around with it all day, suddenly nothing was working... My computer was not even able to connect to the network... In desperation I unplugged my computer from the wall and dragged the cable to the modem itself.

For some reason, it now works fine. I'm going to have to work out why it wasn't working through the wall connection, because the cable in the wall was literally only run last weekend.

Using Windows Vista Home Premium Edition, Sevice Pack 2
For about a week now, I haven't been able to access the internet except through Internet Explore 64bit. When I try to connect with Firefox, whatever website I attempt to load comes up as "The connection was reset". When I try to connect with Internet Explore (32bit), I get the message: "Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage". Also uTorrent cannot connect. I tried logging onto Firefox and IE from other computers in my house and had no problem. I also tried my computer on a different network and had the same problems.

I first noticed the problem when I upgraded to the latest edition of uTorrent. I checked for any updates with Windows, ran scans using AVG and Spyware Doctor, uninstalled uTorrent, tried uninstalling and re-installing Firefox, ran Firefox in safe mode, turned off Windows Firewall, and disabled AVG. I haven't had any luck yet. So I came here

I posted in "Windows Vista", the thread was moved to "Am I Infected? What do I do?". After trying a few different things, the person helping me couldn't see the problem so suggested I follow steps 6 through 9 of the Preparation Guide and post it here (I skipped step 8 because I am running a Windows 64 bit OS).

I just bought this laptop about 10 days ago to use specifically for a writing project separate from my other work laptop. It has Windows 7. It had Google Chrome installed (or maybe my brother installed it upon taking it out of the box.) I have
used IE as my browser on this laptop once or twice, but mostly use Google Chrome. I downloaded some genealogy software I just bought today about an hour or so ago (Family Tree Maker 2012) and noticed that it would not connect to the internet to register- it
kept saying "No internet connection". After trying a few things (allowing the program access through Windows Firewall, checking to make sure that "proxy server" tab was not checked in Internet Settings, disabling some Bing Maps and Windows
Live email accelerators) and finally tried closing Chrome and opening IE to run in background instead. However, IE won't connect - keeps saying "Cant display webpage" although I am definitely connected to internet via wifi. I tried resetting Internet
Explorer...no dice. I've restarted several times. Nothing is working. Any suggestions?
My husband thinks i should uninstall Chrome, which he guesses is causing all the trouble with both IE and the Family Tree software. But I'm afraid that if I uninstall Chrome and it doesnt work, i wont be able to get back on the internet since I can presently
only do so through Chrome.

A:IE won't connect to internet, but Chrome is working fine. Other software wont connect to internet either.

Uninstalling Chrome should not be nessesary it does have an agressive default install which should not be used but uninstalling will not fix any issues because chromes uninstall will not change
setting back the way they were before you installed it/ or who ever.
Reset ie9 manually,
Click the Start button on the Taskbar,
Click on Control panel,

Go to the Advanced section,
Click on Reset button on the bottom,
Check the box to Delete personal settings,

She keeps loosing connection, then has to wait until it decides it can connect again. She would wait about five minutes and then click on something and would gain access.


the symptom has been occurring for at least a month and more.

We are on a wireless network (Uverse) and have not had any problems with this wireless network

One thing i notice is that her icon for the connect shows one less bar than mine shows. I should be the same. they are both HP machines and sit in the same spot.

when it is not connected and the icon is clicked it does not show our connect name as an option. Sometimes rebooting solves the problem, sometimes clicking 'connect' does. It will work for a while and then she looses the connect.

I am not sure that her problems started when she got that "conduit" search malware. I had only partially removed it, it was still resident when another tab on her firefox was opened. Yesterday i found some additional information to remove the settings from registry and thought that had cured it.

I have been at this for over 10 hours. I am building a new PC with a MSI DDR board and Athlon 1.2 ghz processor and a new IBM ata 100 hard drive. All was going well until I tried to connect to the internet. I have already processed 5 other PC's from this bench this week. I am attached to a 100 mps network with a Linksys DSL/Cable router/switch.

The new PC is on the network and has no problem seeing the other PC's on the network or exchanging data. They all see it. They all connect to the internet. The new PC is stripped. The wsock32.dll is not corrupt and there are no other copies. I have tried everything suggested on the MS site. This makes no sense! The system was Win 98SE with IE 5.51. I backed down to Win 98/IE 5.0 with the same result. I then stripped the cards down to video only, reformatted the hard drive and installed Win 98/IE 4.0 from scratch. I added the NIC. All went in without a hitch. I was on the LAN and fully functional. I opened IE and "A connection to the server could not be established." The SOS.

So, the only variable is the new PC. Anyone have any ideas?

VERY Frustrated.

Thank you for any help.

On my Windows 7 Home Premium computer I have this problem. When I click a computer or NAS unit in the Network part in the Windows Explorer I just get an connection error dialog. If I try to connect via another machine (windows 7 Ultimate) I get a login dialog and have no problem connecting.

Both machines is on the same network using WORKGRUP. Both can connect the Internet and print to local printer.

The main problem is that I get no login dialog - just an error dialog. I can't find any way to manual edit this information.

Steam, msn messenger, iTunes, even my Norton antivirus and firefox. I thought it was a router problem, but then I switched to a different connection that doesn't even use a router and I still have the same problem. Any ideas?

Update: I booted my computer up in safe mode with networking and those programs worked. How do I fix this?

Starting yesterday, when I try to open IE8, a box opens and asks if I want to go to homepage or back to previously opened folders. When I select either, IE8 stops responding. I tried reinstalling IE8, but the same thing still occurs. I finally had to uninstall IE8 and am now using IE7 successfully. Any help appreciated.

I can't access the Internet. Server Not Found.

System Information:
Windows XP Home 5.1.2600 Service Pack 2 Build 2600
Compaq Presario 061
Model DW256A, Processor AMD 2166 Mhz

Problem devices after I ran the HJT Log. My network devices are found in the Unknown devices with a yellow exclamation mark by each.

Device: 1394 Net Adapter V1394\NIC1394\69F9B1E01800. This device is not working properly because Windows cannot load the drivers required for this device.

Device: VIA Rhine Fast Ethernet Adapter. PCI\VEN_1106&DEV_3065&SUBSYS_80FF1043&REV_78\3&61AAA01&1&90 This device is not working properly because Windows cannot load the drivers required for this device.

I've tried unistalling each but they reinstall as before. I ran the "netsch winsock reset catalog" and didn't help. Installed the "WinsockXPFix.exe" and didn't help.

What can I try next? I appreciate your help!


A:Can't connect to Internet Explorer

I found a fix for my problem!!! Network Adapters disappeared after major spyware invasion. I found that my registry had been modified. The registry key affected was: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CURRENTCONTROLSET\CONTROL\CLASS\{4D36E972-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318} I went to run, regedit and followed this path and I thought it would be missing completely but it wasn't. It was there but it had problems. To fix it go to: http://www.trilaworks.com/tools/networkadaptersfix.zip
In my case I didn't have an Internet connection, so I used my son's computer to save the zip file to a floppy disk. I then inserted the floppy disk into my computer and extracted the file to My Documents. Then open the file and it asks you if you want to send the information in this file to your registry. Yes. But before you download always be prepared. Have your registry and critical files backed up or have a restore disk just in case. Trojans and Worms can be in files that you download. It took about 3 seconds to download. I then went into device manager and updated the drivers for my VIA Rhine II NetAdapter and the 1394 Firewire devices that had the Yellow exclamation mark. I rebooted and the Network adapters were all showing up. I went to Internet Explorer and still could not find server. I went back into Device Manager and deleted the network adapters and rebooted. After reboot I could access Internet. What a relief!! Hope this helps anyone having the same problem. I spent a lot of tim... Read more

I have a PC that won't let IE6 connect to the internet. I have a Comcast Cable Broadband connection and my OS is XP Home. My yahoo and AOL IM work fine. When I start IE it trys to connect to my homepage (or others i have typed in) and I keep getting the error message "The page could not be displayed", The page you are looking for might have been removed or had its name changed.


Please try the following:

Open the home page, and then look for links to the information you want.

If you typed the page address in the Address bar, make sure that it is spelled correctly.

If you still cannot open the page, click the Internet Explorer
Search button to look for similar sites.
I can connect to any websites on my other PC. I have used the Add/Remove Programs to uninstall any software that I dont use anymore. Also, I have run Adaware and Spybot and deleted the entries that I did not recognize (spyware?). Any ideas on how to get IE back up and running? Thanks!

A:Internet Explorer won't connect

Hi teejayh...first off, use IE Tool/Internet options and click Delete Cookies, Delete Files and Clear History, clicking OK each time.

Then go Tools/Internet options...Programs tab...click Reset web settings.

Close IE, restart and see if things improve.

If not, download, install and run HiJackThis (it's free). Select 'do a system scan and save the log file' - DON'T let it 'fix' anything as most of the entries are meant to be there.

Copy and paste the complete log into another post in this thread and someone will look at it and advise you further.

A:can't connect to internet explorer

Well, generally we answer in the thread and people just check in from time to time. What exactly is the error you get when you open IE? Or does IE not run at all? Do you just get the generic 'cannot connect to server' error, or is there something else? (Honestly, my opinion right off the bat would be to downgrade to IE 7. IE 8 is still in beta or just got out of beta and still has a lot of bugs. This may be evidence of one of them. It may be having compatability problems with something on your computer.)

My current issue is that IE7 cannot connect to the internet. Now before you go posting to tell me to get Firefox, thats what I use already as my browser. However, i must have IE7 able to connect to the internet because many programs rely on it. My current issue is that IE7 wont connect to any website, but all of my other programs work fine. I can browse the web with Firefox and all my other programs have no connectivity issues. The first thing I did was ask Microsoft for help, but all I got was to look on their website or pay us 60 bucks to talk on the phone. After browsing their site for solutions and attempting them all I still have no IE7 connection to the net. I will post any information possibly relevant here and just ask if you need more. I understand that you are taking time out of you day to help people and I thank you for that.

A:Can not connect to web using Internet Explorer

You need a separate thread for this katy, so please follow-up here.

Whatever Rolling-High.com is the "account is in suspension".

It rather sounds like your Internet Explorer Home Page has been altered. Try changing it to something else, such as www.yahoo.com and see if the change holds up and you can access the site.

You can change your Homepage through Tools>Internet Options.

Hey guys, my computer can navigate the internet just fine with Firefox, but when I try to use Internet Explorer, the browser comes up and it just says "connecting" on the tab. Nothing ever happens and none of the buttons on the browser work. I have to go to the task manager to close it out and of course it tells me it's not responding. I have the latest version of it. I am running Windows XP Home. I've run two different virus scans and it never fixes anything, but most of the scanners require that I use Internet Explorer to use them. Any ideas?

I am using XP Pro SP2 and my IE 6 will not connect to the internet. Also Outlook Express will not connect. I can connect to the Internet with FireFox but not with IE.
This started a couple of weeks ago. I was able to find an old restore point and get it going again. Then the next morning, it would no longer work. Now, even a restore point will not fix it.
A couple of days ago I upgraded to SP2 thinking it might fix IE. No luck. Everything works fine except IE 6 and Outlook Express.

For the past month i've been having a problem with IE6 on my laptop. It absolutely refuses to connect. With Firefox everything is OK. I've tried everything i could think of with no success. I ran Microsoft Malicious software removal tool and found nothing. I ran four antispyware programs with the same result. I ran my antivirus program and again nothing. I removed IE6 and then re-installed it and again no change. I removed IE6 again and installed IE7 and again the same thing. I removed IE7 and re-installed IE6 and ran Fix Winsock which did nothing. I ran the system file checker and there too, nothing was found. On the internet options connections tab , the setting for connection is automatically detect settings. I checked with my desktop machine and i have the same settings and i'm having no problem with IE6 on that machine. I did a repair install of XP and installed SP2 and all the Autopatcher versions that were there before. Again , that did nothing. I also tried with caution a couple of registry fixing programs and again no change. I ran HijackThis , and include the log result for it. I'm running out of ideas to fix this problem. Why do i need IE6 if Firefox is working you may ask? It seems that you can connect your XBox 360 with your computer and play media from it. You have to use the software for Microsoft Zune player to do it. During the install of the program , it wants to check for updates and like IE6 it cannot connect , so the install st... Read more
