I have a Briadband Speedtouch modem and it connects to teh computer via USB. Now when I load up IE6 and click on teh connect button i get an icon in teh system icon tray. the problem is that i cant open any web sites or sign in on MSN messenger. I have tried the same with mozilla and the problem still exits. I have used system restore and also disabled my fire wall and still the problem exists. Please help me.

have you looked in IE, options, privacy tab and slid the slider down to the half way mark..

try start/run/cmd it should open a dos box type in there ipconfig and see what it comes up with, this will determine if your connected or not, also check file in top left of page and make sure work off line is not selected.

This can mean the settings for the connection - DNS/etc are incorrect. Try re-installing the modem.
