f. I get a message saying "You are not authorized to view this page".
g. I need to view a Web page when I can't go on line.
Help me please
I have been changing some internet settings, using my cable modem for 2 PC's, etc. And i can't open most internet pages. It states that the page cannot be displayed because of failed server. I tried it again and it opens fine. Initially, i thought the web pages were temporarily shut down. But is not the case. Also is slower when opening a web page, unlike before. Sometimes an x shows instead of the picture.
