If you are connected but Internet Explorer states that you're working offline, whilst in IE click File, then untick work offline. Close the webpage and reopen, it should now work.
Sian, thanks so much, clearing the offline check from the File Menu connected me with no further problems. Thanks again!
This is still a relevant issue for me today, however IE does not say I am working offline, so what is the next place to check? How do you check the DNS server? Will acquiring a new lease fix this if that is the issue?
I'm currently having the same problem. I installed WinSockFix because according to other uses on this website, it was a virus. This did not work and I've discovered that it is a problem with my DNS server. That's all I know, and I'm not sure how to fix this problem yet. Try the WinSockFix download and if that doesn't work, it's probably something to do with your DNS servers.
any idea on how to fix a dns server?
