Cant access the internet

  pete018 17:51 04 Jan 14

I have a toshiba laptop using windows 7,I am unable to log into the internet because I keep getting the message 'the proxy server isn't responding'.

However, my partner can use her login on the same laptop to access the internet.

Grateful for any help

Are you using a proxy server for your login account.. If so just disable it.

Thanks for this,

Sorry to appear thick but how do I check if I am using a proxy server for my login account

Network and sharing centre\Internet Options (Bottom left)\Connections Tab\Lan Settings button\Proxy Server at the bottom half.

Are you using Firefox?

if so google for the solution, it's very straight forward but I don't have access to a W7 PC to guide you through it at present.
