I have a strange one. My PC laptop will not connect to the internet although the icon suggests it's connected with an excellent signal. This is working as I am on it with my desktop at the moment. As soon as I try to connect with any programme to update or try to refresh my anti-virus it will not connect stating there is no connection. My son-in-law says it the same as he has got and is a RP Trojan. As I'm not up to speed with this is there anything I can do? Maybe they should if possible hand out prison sentences to all that create these menaces. Help appreciated.
I have had similar problems where my desktop will not connect despite a good signal yet my iPhone or laptop will connect, it has always been fixed by toggling my router unlikely though that may be, I believe its an ISP problem
Hi wee eddie I'm sure I have only the one and up to now has worked wonders, that is the Zone Alarm programme when it can update.
Thanks Ian in Northampton I have tried that and it states there is no connection. I did find that messing about with a few things that a box came up which I should have wrote the text down but didn't, it was closing down in a set time.
highside Hi, Do you mean by 'toggling' giving it a good shake/ I'm not too familiar with the term, sorry.
Surprised no one suggested a tcp/ip and winsock reset , that usually sorts things out .
peterleemaxwell , if things still aren't working try this ....click on accessories , then right click on Command Prompt and select Run as administrator .
In the black box that comes up type in ( without the quote marks )
" netsh int ip reset resetlog.txt " then press enter .
At the next prompt type in ( again without the quote marks )
" netsh winsock reset catalog " Again press enter .
The laptop will tell you that you must reboot the PC so type in exit , then type it in again , and reboot , see if that helps you .
