Internet explorer cannot connect to Internet RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • Issue connecting to Internet via Internet explorer and Mozilla firefox. However, if I use Yahoo messenger or windows messenger I get connected to internet. I am using a wireless router and the router is connected broadband. I have tried to connect directly to broadband and the issue persists.

    I have tried to install other browsers to test the connectivity and I found that if I use "Safari" browser I could connect to internet. I have installed the antivirus software in my laptop and even disabled the windows firewall but it does not help. I have also tried to clean up registry w.r.t to TCP/IP and Winsock, still does not resolve my problem. I have also checked the browser internet option settings, which is set to "Automatically detect proxy".

    Please throw some light, what else I could try to connect back to Internet. My internet connection was working fine till a week ago. Fyi, I could to connect to Internet successfully using the wireless router through another laptop.

    My System specifications:

    Windows XP with SP3
    Internet explorer 8.0 and internet explorer 6.0
