Okay here it goes. I am very frustrated at this point. I just got a laptop yesterday. It is a Toshiba 331, I have a desktop computer with comcast cable internet service. What I need to know is how to get the laptop online temporarily until I hook up the wireless internet stuff. I hooked it up and it keeps saying that it is connected but when I go to the internet explorer it won't work. I don't know why its doing this but I would appreciate any bit of help I can get. You can reply on here, email me at ileavebitemarks050@hotmail.com or talk to me on aim: xgoochxsmoochx

When you click on Internet Explorer, does it try to dial out? When I work on a computer here that usually uses dial-up, all I have to do is open Explorer and go to Tools -> Internet Options -> Connections and set it to never dial a connection. When I want to switch back to dial-up, I reverse the process.

After changing the setting, close IE, the re-open it and see if it works.
