Have Connection, But Ie Will Not Work?

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I just got this old laptop and transfered all my isp setting over to it.....and it will connect, but i cannot get IE to do anything! It gives a error message something about not being able to find a network connection. I have been through all the tcp/ip, dns settings, they are all exactly like my home pc, but it still refuses to work. I cannot get to microsoft/update, or any of the pc pitstop tools, or anywhere for that matter. The driver is functioning for the modem, .....i'm at a loss. any help on this would be greatly appreciated!!!

Did you have a look at Services in admin.tools? Such as Internet connections,net connections,remote access mgrs,remote auto connect mgr., etc. Just a thought. ;) I take it you had a look at IE Tools/internet options?

Hang on for a few...I'll see if I can get another member to have a look.

I never ran 98, I'm running XP

I asked another member to drop by but guess he couldn't make. However, if you want to have a look at this,it may help.

In internet explorer click on tools, internet options, connections, settings..

Make sure proxy server is "not checked".

Do the the same for lan settings, check that proxy server is "not checked"...

 

I had the same problem once and that fixed it..

What modem? You're talking about TCP/IP then you're talking about a modem?

 

What kind of connection do you have? How exactly are you connecting?

i have an ISP which i connect to via phoneline. i use LT win modem, when i made a new dial-up, i copied all of my settings from my home pc to this laptop (tcp/ip dns settings)....

i am checking my dns settings in my network neighborhood now.....may be the problem......nope!

in 98 in systems information, (start, programs,accsessories, systems tools...)

click on tools in the top bar and select ie repair tool . you shouldnt need the disc just a reboot after.

good luck

That is strange ...the ie repair tool is the only one missing there.

So try add /remove programs in your control panel. Select ie then click add remove. From the next menu,(if its there) pick repair. You wont need the disc.

 

If this doesnt work it looks like your missing alot of your ie prog and you

may have to find a 98se disc to repair it.

 

Or if you can think of another program...for example norton systems works has ie6 in its support files....you could reinstall it that way.

IE doesnt show up in the ADD/REMOVE options.

 

I do have a Win98 first edition disc.....and......Norton Systemworks 2000.

 

Will I need to uninstall or delete the IE i now have? anyway, what is the process?

it should just overwrite the existing one if theres even one there...like you said its not in add/remove programs.

find the ie6 file(.exe) on the norton disc i think its in the support file

click it and it should install with the wizard.

if you cant find it on the disc post back and ill give you better info

it doesnt have msie.

i've looked through all the folders under support and no ie6.exe ie6setup.exe .

 

it must not be on systemworks 2000. (?)

 

i guess i could always order a navigator disc. ;)
