Trouble logging into a website thru wireless home network RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have one desktop pc running XP and two laptops, one running XP and one running Vista. 
    Belkin wireless router
    Windows Live Onecare
    Starband satelite internet provider

    The Problem;
    I can log into my Verizon wireless account from the desktop but not the laptops.

    I don't have any problems with any other accounts except this one.

    Is there any possibility it might be a problem with Onecare?

    Any suggestions?

  • Unlikely to be due to OneCare, but you can try turning off the OneCare firewall on the laptops to see if that resolves the problem.
    If it were the firewall, it would be blocking access to any web site using the browser. This is more likely a browser setting issue. Try resetting the browser to default - in IE - Tools/Internet Options/Advanced/Defaults.
