I'm using Windows XP Home edition. I just installed a new motherboard. I can connect to my DSL server with Netscape Navigator just fine, but Explorer will only give me "cannot display page."
I don't know if this is related, but I also cannot use either of my ftp programs to update web sites. Those connections also fail. I was using Norton Antivirus until I got sick of how slow my computer was running and uninstalled it using a couple methods. At the moment I don't have an antivirus on this machine. I've tried uninstalling Explorer and reinstalling the latest version, reinstalling Windows XP.... I'm stumped. I've looked all over the Internet and haven't found much help. Any suggestions?

Go to Tools, Options, Connections and make sure there isn't a dialup connection listed there--unless you use dialup. From there keep going into LAN Settings and make sure nothing is checked.

After making those changes, if any, close and reopen IE and see if it works.

If not, go to avast.com and grab the free antivirus program for your computer and scan it.

I did everything you suggested...the problem persists. I have an always-on DSL connection.

i want you to look at the bottom right of your screen near the clock and see do you see the network icon with a red x .. i will look like a small computer with a red x all over it


2. go to start - run- then type cmd (code for geting into the dos prompt)
once the little black screen appears type in this word ipconfig then hit enter

ip address......192.168.0.11- (example)
default gateway . . . .

if you get this

ip adress.....0.0.0.0 ... then you have a connection problem hit me back with the details

Jorell,
Thanks for your help. :)
1--There is no screen with a red x on it.
2-- the ipconfig reads:
