Can't access secure sites over wirleless connectio

  D E A N O 11:59 21 Aug 2008

I have two laptops connecting wirelessly to the same wireless router. One laptop (running vista)can access paypal, bank and other secure sites, the other (running XP) cannot. This has totally mistified me, can anyone help?

Try forwarding the port 442 on the router cause SSL uses that.

It maybe nothing to do with Wireless but XP or the computer running it.

Check your security settings of any software and also XP itself - try making the sites you need to access SAFE sites....

My son had a problem with just ONE banks sites he could never access... it can tough to trace.

On that XP computer, try to use other web browsers (IE, Opera, Firefox, etc) to access paypal, bank and other secure sites.. Sometimes the problem can due to misconfiguration on web browser. Also check the firewall (Windows firewall, antivirus firewall, etc) if you have enabled and see any misconfiguration (advise you to disable the firewall temporary).
