I am running WinXP Home edn. The problem is that when I disconnect from the Internet and a while afterwards redial to go back on - my IE and OE programs do not recognise that there is a connection. I then have to restart my computer to put things right.
Has anyone heard of this problem as I am at a loss of how to fix it.
Sorry DieSse - I didn't make it too plain - I can log on without any problem at all, it is while I am logged on that my IE and OE don't recognise the fact that I am logged on. That means that I cannot get any emails or look at any web pages. To rectify this I have to do a reboot then all is well again.
I can't see this problem clearing on its own but yesterday I downloaded and installed some Windows Updates and today the Internet is working just as it should. I have been on and off the Internet several times over an 8 hour period and it works OK.
