Internet explorer cannot display the webpage

  mr simon 17:11 07 Mar 2010

I am getting this error on a laptop running IE8. In firefox I get a "unable to connect" message, I haven't tried it on other broswers. Running XP.

So far I've cleared history/cookies/cache etc as suggested on another site and have run IEs built in diagnostic tool, to no avail.

My network connections box shows the LAN network cable unplugged and the wireless network connection as connected.

Thanks in advance for help with this issue.

I tried a System Restore and it did not work, any more suggestions?

Try connecting the laptop to the router by cable and see if you can connect to the internet. This will then allow you to know if it is a wireless connection problem or not.

Do this

start> run> cmd> type ipconfig/all on the prompt screen.

Do you have a dns address or is it just blank? You could just right click and copy and paste the results here.

The only part of the results mentioning DNS is:

Connection-specific DNS Suffix: lan

Well thats why then can you please copy and paste the results please.

  SJM_81 17:10 09 Mar 2010

And while you are on the prompt just try this.

Ipconfig/release press enter then type ipconfig/renew press enter.

Does it work now?
