Hi there,

My broadband conncetion is running fine apart from problems when attempting to access my connection via Windows Media Player and .exe installation files.

I receive messages such as 'This computer must be connected to the internet to install (program)'.

I have tried temporarily disabling my anti-virus/firewall to no avail.

Any ideas how I can configure my system to overcome this would be much appreciated!

Thanks...

System: Dell Vostro Windows XP Wireless brodband connection

Have you tried putting them on the 'Allowed' list of programs (given permission) that are allowed to access Internet.
