Hello,
I use firefox. I know that my connection is fine, but my firefox screen is blank. The internet explorer screen won't work either - says unable to load page.
Can anybody help?

What is the vpn and how do you make sure it's installed or re-install it?

Just wanted to say thanks for all the suggestions. The machine I use has XP

I clicked on Network Connections, right clicked on the wireless network connection, scrolled down to TCP/IP, clicked on the label to highlight it, clicked on properties, clicked on obtain IP address automatically (obtain DNS server address automatically is automatically selected), clicked on ok and all worked like as advertised.

My primary clue to pursue this avenue was observing that the DNS was not being created when I reset the wireless connection (create a new network or add a device to an existing network).

You all are GREAT!
Thankyou, worked like a dream.
thank you very much,that was all it took

Ok so try this:

Go into my computer > device manager then delete your wireless network adapter and NIC adapter. Restart your computer.

The problem should be fixed. If not, likelihood you have a virus or some malware.

I tried many things to fix the 3 browsers (IE, Firefox and Chrome) that were not working for my client.

I tried the Norton's Removal Tool, netsh commands, clearing caches, checking proxies, virus scans, adaware scans on and on and on... (it was many hours)

I finally ran CCleaner (http://www.piriform.com/ccleaner) and all three browsers started working. It's a free app and worth a try if nothing else is working for you.

Hello

I also had the same problem, my internet connection is connected but none of browsers display web pages. But from command prompt I can ping to any website. After testing lot fixes, I realise that I removed the vpn from the system just before the problem starts. That was an unmetured uninstallation. So I reinstall the VPN and it is working fine. After that I uninstall the VPN still there is no problem. Hope this info may help you. Thank you

hi,
when Firefox is open, click on File and see if the Work offline option is checked.
if yes, uncheck it.
then try to connect to internet.
My problem is: I can connect to my ISP (BlueFrog as moorewatson@bluefrog.com using Best Dialup -- account # 11501 but I am unable to use internet explorer}. BlueFrog customer service number is 866 258 3376. Using a cable hookup I was still unable to access internet explorer.
Hi Larry think some .dll files were missed and you must reinstall the internet explorer or mozilla firefox.. enjoy..
Bye..

check your TCP/IP settings. mine were somehow switched to set manually so it wasn't auto detecting the IP or DNS.

something you have recently download or updated might be blocking it. try a system restore in safe mode

I have the same problem. I still have no idea how to fix it, but I have a workaround. It happens that I have 2 routers. Everytime the page won't load I switch to the other router. Hope this could help you.

Hi there, this happened on my computer too and was very frustrating. In the end I turned off Zone Alarm and it worked fine. When I turned it back on again the same problem struck. I've not had problems with zone alarm before, but thems the breaks.

Good luck!

WinXP: Certain web pages would not work or load with 3 different browsers. Checked host file, firewall etc. No luck. Then I noticed flash player was used on these problem web pages by observing them on another computer. Had my setting for 'allowing storage on computer' to 'never'. Unchecked it and all problem web pages worked. This was the link to the settings. http://www.macromedia.com/...
