Hi my Son has bought a Sony Laptop the problem is we cant get it connected to the net.
All it comes up with is Page cannot be displayed.
I have tried all suggestions in the cannot be displayed menu.
I have a voyager 1200 modem which is wireless and is showing full strength on the Laptop
I have tried the wizard setup for MSN and just by DC IE.
There have been people in the house with laptops that connect OK.

what is the firewall he is using, he might need to put the IP address in..

Win xp Firewall.
I tried looking to see if Norton AV was running a firewall but it froze as soon as it put up the first screen. I cant get rid of first screen of Norton at the moment. I have now disconnected Win FW but it still wont connect

The strange thing is Norton did an update when I first switched it on even though IE could not be found.

Hi I still cant get onto the net through IE but I have just spent the last ten minuets watching Norton search ror updates and bring it up to date.
I have tried a number of serches with google all to be returned with Page CannotBe Displayed.
What am I missing.
