Laptop losses explorer connection but msn ok

  tnucboy 21:26 22 Oct 2008

My laptop with XP loses explorer connection after a few mins but msn is still ok and I am still connected to net via wireless.

Have tried to go back and do a system restore but still the same. After a restore and removing Exploer 7 I still have exploer 6 installed and it works for a bit then cuts off saying"unable to display page"

Any ideas??

Thansk for your help in advance.

Try using Firefox until you get it sorted.

go to the tools, internet options, and click connections, and go to lan setting, and see if you have got any doggy settings there.

you know sometimes the internet just gets cut off for several seconds and restalls back, if sometimes the page can't be displayed, that might not be the fault on your side though, do you have any other pc in your home, do they behave sort of the same like this one?

if not using firefox might not be a bad choice.

Have you tried Tools.Internet Options.Programs.And make sure Internet Explorer is the default web Browser.Sorry but know nothing about wireless connection so cannot help with that.

Maybe time to run your security programs,But as you have no firewall I presume that you have no Security programs either.Try running with your add-ons disabled see if that helps.You could try Tools.Internet Options.Advanced and press restore advanced settings.if that does not work,Advanced and press reset.Or try.Run,Type in cmd.when that opens type in ipconfig /flushdns a small space between the ipconfig and the forward slash or it will not work.It should tell you DNS has been flushed.Tools.Delete browsing history.Delete temp files cookies and history.Wireless connection I cant help you with.

This from another thread. Have you tried turning of your router at the back of the router with Button or Switch? leave off for five minutes then restart it.
