I am obviously missing something obvious. I can connect to the internet and get my home page but cant access any other pages, it just comes up with page cant be displayed. Any ideas.Thanks

What we are missing are details:-)

What operating system?

What browser?

What type of connection?

A quick fix if you have broadband via a modem/router would be to reboot it and see what happens.

Ok, windows xp, internet explorer and dial up connection. hope that is enough info.

...saved for offline viewing? That would explain why you can see it but nothing else - your connection is not working.
Firstly, check all cables and plugs behind the machine - even the one that goes into the 'phone wall socket.
If all o.k. post back here.

There is no problem with the connection as I have changed my home page . All I can access is one page when i go on line, I have tried google bbc and blueyonder as my homepages and can see them, but as soon as I try to access another page or site, it can not be displayed.....

...only changing the page in the browser? If you keep getting 'Page cannot be displayed' error, your connection is DEFINITELY at fault.

What firewall and firewall settings do you have?

As an experiment go to tools>internet options>general tab and click on 'delete files' then see if you can still see your home page. click here
Go to Start>run and type cmd, then in the window that opens, use Ping to test the network connection in your computer by typing ping 127.0.0.1. If you receive “Request timed out,” then your computer is having trouble connecting to its own network card. Check your network settings or call your ISP for help.

# If the previous step says that your computer and network card are successfully communicating, use Ping to test the connection to your default gateway. Find the IP address of your default gateway by using ipconfig. If you receive a “Request timed out” message, there may be a problem with your default gateway, whether it is your ISP or local router. Call your ISP for help.

You may have missed the point. abi2gail is on a dialup connection - no mention of a network.

so, I have changed it from dial up to broadband on a network. says connection is good. so seems to be no problems there .not really sure where to go from here. not really wanting to connect at all.
