Anyone help with this problem. We have a HP desk top with windows XP and I connected it to network with router and have no problem surfing the net and even downloading the poker software on the desktop but when I try and run the software it says cannot find internet connection? Also cannot download the service pak2 from microsoft, don't know if that has anything to do with the problem. Would really like to play poker on one specific site and have to download their software. Not a firewall problem and have been on phone with techs about the router and not the router. Have entered the url of poker site in internet options to allow it thru, and played with settings but all to no avail. Anyone have any suggestions?

You may have your Internet Explorer's Active X settings blocking it.

Click on "tools", then on "internet Options", then on the Security tab, and see what your Active X settings are.

Be aware that lowering the level of protection will make you vulnerable to certain kinds of attacks that use Active X. That's why Microsoft restricted them with certain Windows Updates and security patches.
