Help! Can't Connect To Internet With My Laptop
Posted 11 July 2011 - 07:05 AM
If I bring the laptop to the room with the desktop and turn off the wireless and use the actual cord to plug it in...it still doesn't connect.
I'm typing on the desktop now.
I've reset/turned off/on the modem, the router, my computer.
I'll get back in this room a little later to see if anyone had any info.

I had a similar problem recently (Verizon) and they had to redo some settings -- it was all done over the phone.

She "discovered" that I had something checked that shouldn't be. (Well, how did it get checked?) She said to uncheck the spot that says to use a proxy server for your LAN. It's in Internet Properties>Connections. Well, when it isn't checked, I have access. But...it keeps re-checking itself. After a little while signed in, I'll go to open up a site or e-mail or something and find that my connection is lost. Lo and behold that box is checked. I'll uncheck it and my connection is instantly back. Argh. I've never had to keep up with that setting before.
Anyone know anything about it???

But it sounds like that isn't it!
However, I just Googled it and people are saying that it might mean that you have some spyware going on. The ASK tool bar might cause it.
People keep talking it in concert with IE.
