Internet connection but no web-site connection

  Creditman 13:36 10 Aug 2003

Using Saga as my ISP on Windows XP home I connect ok & the background screen (M/S I/E supplied by SAGA)appears.Then, instead of my home page I get an error message to the effect "cannot find server". Same thing when I try to call up any of ny Faviourites. I eventually succeed but only after disconnecting & reconnecting (sometimes more than once). This problem occurrs most times when I try to connect to Internet, but not always so I don't think any of my connection settings are at fault. I often use the Internet key on my keyboard & this nearly always has the result described. Any suggestions please how to avoid/overcome this ?

I assume it's dialup. Try updating your modem driver via device manager, plus repairing ie via add/remove.

i get the same problem but if i hit refresh or home then the home page appears i assume its my firewall as problem only started when i installed it.

Have you set the Saga website as your default home page from Tools>Internet Options>Connections?

Perhaps you should try another ISP. As an energency set up a DUN using 0845 1121212 and any user name and password. This service is provided by Freeola. click here
