Please help me... not very internet savy

I don't understand why I can go online via AOL ver 9.0 but not IE

but I have dsl service, not dial up

AOL works but I cannot dowload anything to my computer and when I try to go on IE it says "Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage"

the page itself says

Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage

Most likely causes:
You are not connected to the Internet.
The website is encountering problems.
There might be a typing error in the address.

What you can try:
Diagnose Connection Problems

More information

This problem can be caused by a variety of issues, including:

Internet connectivity has been lost.
The website is temporarily unavailable.
The Domain Name Server (DNS) is not reachable.
The Domain Name Server (DNS) does not have a listing for the website's domain.
If this is an HTTPS (secure) address, click Tools, click Internet Options, click Advanced, and check to be sure the SSL and TLS protocols are enabled under the security section.
