In addition, my avg updates doesnt work, nor anything that needs to go out to a website to update. All of these say that they cannot connect to the internet. I am trying also to connect a new linksys router and it says that it cannot detect the network. how can this be when i connect and surf just fine with my msn explorer, you know, the one with the butterfly! Help!! I am now not able to even use my old wireless router. Should I somehow change the default version of explorer to the one that works to steer these other programs to it to get a valid connection?
