Are you running a firewall? If so, check your settings and make sure you have allowed IE to access the internet.
For some reason I can't open all sites with IE. For example when I go to a shopping site and then hit the link to sign on I get the can't find server page. I can't open my e-mail or hotmail sites. Got tired of this and finially loaded Netscape and all works great with Netscape. It seems so much easier to use too, but that is not the point. I have tried changing my Internet settings but nothing seems to work. I have tried every setting I can think of but nothing works. I can't even open up my hotmail link with MS Internet Explorer but can with Netscape. I am running XP Home on a laptop. I also have XP Pro on a desktop and no problem there. I tried setting the settings the same as the desktop but nothing. I thought it might be something to do with the wireless hub I was running it through but tried running it directly into the broadband with out the hub and still the same. I guess I can just switch over to Netscape which I basically have but still this bugs me and I would like to know why. Anyone know?
