    Default No internet??

    Ok, my computer lost is internet about a week ago. I had it one night, and when I turned on my comp the next day, poof gone . When I open IE I get the typical error, "This page cannot be displayed." So i try unplugging my cord, nothing. Reset my modem, nothing. I tried releasing and renewing my IP, but when I try to renew, it says: An error occurred while trying ... on something that is not a socket.?? I ran a virus scan, nothing. Im stumped , and Im sure one of you genius's can help me.

    Why is this in the Windows Forum? Anyways-----go to "Tools" then to "Connections" then to "LAN Settings" then make sure that "Auto detect settings" is selected (and nothing else). If that dosen't work, I think you're screwed with the LAN connection, so try USB with drivers (never fails).

    Have you tried repairing or reinstalling IE? Also if your connection runs through a nic have you tried uninstalling the nic in the device manager and rebooting?
