I am running Internet Explorer 8 and have Windows XP. I use Firefox version 3.5.6 which I mainly use more than Internet Explorer. While I'm browsing, I am often getting messages from Firefox "Server not Found ......Try Again" and in IE it says "Cannot display webpage"

I often have to click "try again" a few times which sometimes takes me to the page and sometimes not.
Can someone help me out with this?

How are you connected to the net? broadband? dialup? tin cans and string? hehe If broadband who is your ISP? If DSL, what is the make and model of the modem? Do you have a router? If yes on the router what is the make and model?

Broandband tin cans and string = coffee cans and 3/4 double braided rope? hehe

Hi


I think that you have to roll back to IE 6 or 7, Xp does not have te release or compatibility of vista or windows 7, also you may check if you have all the dlls already added, also you can run ms office tools-diagnostics since i believe you got some features of ms office 2007 right?

Ok so you have a 2Wire modem/router.

When the error happens, click Start -> click run -> type cmd and hit Enter -> in the box type ping google.com and hit Enter. I am interested in the line that starts "Packets: Sent = 4, etc..." Please post that line

If that errors, type ping 74.125.67.104 and hit Enter. Same line. Please post it.

Packets: Sent=4, Received=4, Lost=0 (0% loss),
Approximate round trip times in milli-seconds:
Minimum=36ms, Maximum=37ms, Average=36ms

Hope that helps.

And you did this when the error happened?

Because you can ping means you still have internet connection but something is stopping the web page. Is it any web page? or a specific page?

when it happens, can you hit the home button, see if your home page will open?
