I am running Windows XP Pro on a desktop system. The problem I am having is that I can not connect to the Internet. I ran Microsoft's connection trouble shooter and it returned with this message: Can not connect through HTTP port 80, HTTPS port 443 or FTP port 21. I can see the lights on the back of my computer were I plug the network cable into, it looks normal. I have tried different cables, different ports on my router. My router works fine in the wireless mode, and with other computers hooked up via a cable. I am assuming that my router is OK. I have Microsoft's firewall turned off and I have set my Webroot security firewall sset to allow all traffic. Not sure what to try next. I truely appreciate any and all suggestions.

Thanks,
Skyhawk

Try a wired connection?

Checked Device Manager for indications of a hardware problem?
