I got this message when I tried to repair the network connection on my husbands Medion laptop. We have two desktop PC’s and two laptops connected via Belkin 54g ADSL wireless modem. All worked well until last October when I lost the internet connection. Belkin Help Line talked me through and got the three available computers working. We have not bothered to connect the Medion laptop until now and expected the connection to be straight forward but I think I may have lost IE. When I click the icon it says page cannot be displayed. I’ve followed all the instructions on the page but only get cannot find server or DNS error. We would be most grateful for any help. Rita.
Thanks for your help Spikeychris. The message on the Medion screen is: ‘Microsoft Windows XP [Version 5.1.2600] (C) Copyright 1985-2001 Microsoft Corp’ C:\Documents and Settings\Rita.L>C: As I could not get to a new line or paste your line onto the screen so I typed it in. and restated the computer. When it rebooted the television signal in the task bar was no longer there. IE still displays ‘No connection to the internet’ Network connections show’ Wireless network connection connected’ Local Area Connection SS900-Based PCI Fast Ethernet Adapter disabled’ and 1394 Connection Net adapter disabled’ The Wireless Lan PIC Card came already installed and is a Creatix CTX712. To-night is the first time it has ever showed Excellent Quality100%. When it was working it was the only computer that showed low, however, it was still able to connect and was reasonably ok for surfing but not good for games. I hope you are able to follow this rather drawn out saga thank you again for your time Regards Rita
I still cannot get connected to the internet on the Medion laptop! All three network adapters are now enabled. The wireless Creatix PCI Card Status shows connected and excellent quality. IE shows 'Page cannot be dislpayed' 'Cannot find server or DNS error' Windows Firewall is turned off. Can you suggest anything else I could try. Thanks for help sofar Regards Rita
