Unable To Connect To Internet Through Anything But Internet Explorer
Sep 30, 2012
I come here today with a problem that has been plaguing this laptop forever and a day. You see, about two or so years ago on this very laptop, it was just another day where I booted up my laptop and was going to get a good day of wasting time on the internet underway. I tried to open Firefox, and I got prompted to download an apparent update for the browser. Obviously I went along with it because it seemed pretty routine and identical to how Firefox had updated in the past.
After the update was all done and dusted, I found myself unable to connect to the internet through Firefox. I would just get a constant stream of "Unable to connect" messages. I thought it might have been a problem on my end since back then I had rather wishy washy internet. So I let it settle for a while. Later on that day I talked to a few of my buddies over Xbox Live and asked if they'd had any similar issues with the new Firefox update because at the time, we all used it and hadn't quite jumped ship to Chrome just yet. But no matter who I asked, I always got the same response "I didn't get any update." Which as you can imagine, confused me quite thoroughly.
I suddenly can't connect to the internet using IE or Firefox every time I try I get the message "Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage". My connection on my wireless picks up great and shows signal strength as excellent. I took it to a place that was offering free check ups and they said that I caught a virus which I never seen any sign of catching a virus when it worked and that it had wiped out one of my hard drives and they could fix it for $229.00. I don't have that kind of money so I don't know what to do.
Some time ago while of facebook i clicked on a link supposedly forwarded from a friend and some sort of flash player virus file was downloaded to my laptop. I proceeded to run a MAlwarebyte scan of the laptop and deleted the downloaded file.However, since then I've been unable to connect to facebook via Internet Eplorer or Goggle Chrome, and I'm getting the message 'Oops! Internet Explorer.
I Have a problem with Internet connections. My laptOp will connect to Skype but not to Internet explorer. No error message appears, it just struggles to load web page. Wireless works fine as my iPad connects easily.Have looked at previous postings on the site that looked similar and reset the ie tools section to default..Recently had norton security expire and have uninstalled all of norton program.Have just signed up to new online security package through my Internet provider called Homesafe.

I have always been using internet explorer and have never had any trouble opening up web sites. However this week trouble has started when using a stock trading site. When I open up the "Home Page" of IG Index this opens in full no problem. But when I then click on the tab to open up the trading section section this opens but not fully. The tool bar across the top but the main body of the page, the frame, is blank. I have tried internet options, deleting history etc and disc clean up but to no avail. Have also tried system restore but no good. Have soken ti IG Index and they suggest changing from Internet Explorer to Firefox as my browser. I dont really want to do this as I am not a computer buff and I can see all sorts of complications arising if I change to Fire Fox
I am getting the error message "internet explorer cannot display the webpage", my computer tells me i am connected to my wireless and that internet is available but it will not open any webpages, no matter which browser i try. I have disabled all firewalls and run diagnostics but it just tells me there is a problem with my router, despite the connection being perfect for other devices. My computer is relatively new and i'm sure its not a virus as i have run different anti-virus and malware softwares.
can open in safe mode only. This is my son's laptop. Yesterday it started not opening up Internet explorer. I ran Mcafee last night. I can open Internet explorer in safe mode but not regular. I checked the proxy it is checked. I am uncertain what else to look at.
I connected to a hotspot that is available for Me to connect to. I connected to one, then I went to the little bars to make sure it's actually connected, It says "Internet Access" (Windows 7) Which means it's connected. Then I clicked on Internet Explorer, to go on the Internet, and It says.. "Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage" Then I clicked on "Diagnose Connection problem" It started to detect the problem.. When it was finished it said.. "Website (Yahoo!) is online but isn't responding to connection attempts."
I went to Tools, Internet Options, LAN Settings, and I checked the First two boxes. Where it says "Address" I put in [URL]then I went back, and went on the Internet but It still says ---"Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage" Then I went back to Tools, Internet Options, and took off [URL]then tried again, then I went back to the Internet but it still said the same thing saying-----"Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage" Then I clicked on "Diagnose Connection problem" and it ---started detecting the problem.. and when it was finished detecting it said...---"Windows could not automatically detect this network's proxy settings."
You only want "Automatically detect settings" checked. The second check box if for a configuration script or the like to setup IE settings. That is really only used by company's that want specific home pages and other settings set to match their networks.If anything is checking in the "Proxy Server" area, I would uncheck it as you won't go through a proxy since you are connecting to a hotspot. It is pretty rare for public locations to use proxy servers.I connected to a hotspot that is available for Me to connect to. I connected to one, then I went to the little bars to make sure it's actually connected, It says "Internet Access" (Windows7) Which means it's connected. Then I clicked on Internet Explorer, to go on the Internet, and It says.. "Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage" Then I clicked on "Diagnose Connection problem" It started to detect the problem.. When it was finished it said.. "Website (Yahoo!) is online but isn't responding to connection attempts."
Internet Explorer Cannot Display the Webpage ?I'm already logged into certain websites but most of the time or in fact all the time today I'm kicked off and I receive an error "Internet Explorer Cannot Display the Webpage."
I have 2 desktops and a laptop accessing a wireless Motorola modem using roadrunner broadband. My desktop/Vista and laptop/Windows 7 are working fine. My older desktop with XP has a wireless card and shows that the wireless is connected with great signal strength but won't access Internet Explorer. I keep getting an error message. I have tried re-setting up the wireless and shutting down the machine ,etc. I have seen a few older posts that suggest downloading some software, etc
I have a Sylvania 7" mini Netbook and I am connected to my wireless modem. My problem is that I am not able to browse the web any anyway. I keep getting cannot find server or DNS Error Internet Explorer.
I received a new hp laptop from a friend with a cisco linksys e1000 router. The first time I hooked it up it got online and worked great. I downloaded some updates for windows and restated the laptop for them to take effect and now it won't get back online for anything. I even restored the computer to the previous settings. All I get is the error message "Internet Explorer can not display the web page. I am running windows 7 ultimate.
I am running firmware 126.96.36.199 on an RV180. After recently upgrading to Microsoft Internet Explorer 10, I notice the RV180 administration screens do not display properly. Specifically, the horizontal window pane is set so high (not adjustable) all the information is not fully displayed. If I use a previous version of Internet Explorer I don't have a problem or if I use another browser like Google Chrome I don't have a problem. So it appears the RV180 and Internet Explorer 10 are not fully compatible.
Below is a screenshot using Internet Explorer 10 showing the Status page. You can see the horizontal window cuts off most of the information and there does not seem to be a way to "pull" it down to display more information.
Here is the same Status Dashboard selection via Google Chrome. Unfortunatly I don't have Internet Explorer 9 still installed, but it worked fine.
I am using CISCO ASA 5505. Client PC with Windows XP can use IE to make the VPN connection normally.However, client PC with Windows 7 cannot use IE to make the VPN connection.It just show the error of "Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage"
I have an Inspiron 15 Intel N5050. Internet explorer cannot open [URL] This is the factory set home page. After a short while I get a message. A website wants to open web content using this program on your computer. Name: Supportsoft Container Publisher Supportsoft Inc. I haven't heard of this software, so I am worried about down loading a virus if I click on allow. I'm able to access other websites without any problem. How can I restore my homepage?
This issue just started happening. I have a Sierra Wireless Aircard 595 plugged into a WRT54G3G-ST. I will be browsing the internet and all of a sudden, I get the message that Internet Explorer cannot find the web page. At that point, I cannot get to any website. I have several PC's, both wired and wireless connected and they all have the same problem,. I have tried Google Chrome, Firefox and IE9 and all browsers have the same issue. My email continues to download through Outlook, I can use WS FTP and I can also log in to a remote computer using Logmein. It is just browser access that is affected.
There is no set time table to the error. Sometimes it happens within minutes, sometimes it is 30 minutes and sometimes it is over an hour. The only way out of it is to either unplug the router, let it set 30 seconds, then plug it back in or I found that I can go into the setup and do a disconnect from mobile broadband and reconnect and it starts working again. Of course, Sprint says they do not deal with issues unless the card is plugged directly into my PC, which is not the environment that I am running in (even though I bought the router and card from them.) Does Linksys still make a mobile broadband router?
