I can only connect to the internet by IE icon but not through other programs like Itunes store or frostwire. Itunes store error is: Itunes could not connect to the Itunes store. An unknown error has occured (-3212). Make sure your network connetion is active and try again.

My internet connection is fine per AT&T ( my provider ). So why can't any of my other programs connect to it?

Please help!

Hello Debbie,

Here is a couple of quick things you can try;

Open internet explorer
>Internet options
>then click on the connections tab
>then at the bottom of that window click LAN SETTINGS
Make sure proxy setting is unchecked on this screen

check if firewall is blocking iTunes.
>control panel
>windows firewall
go to exceptions and allow iTunes.

If you are not using windows firewall
You can do the same with other firewall programs

Let me know it this helps

Try opening internet explorer, go up to to tools, internet options, connections, lan settings make sure your set to automatic, i know some virus will set it to proxy server which you Dont want. If all else fails you can go to command prompt and type ping www.yahoo.com if all comes back fine then you are connected to your isp. At that point you can go to a command prompt and type ipconfig /flushdns, reboot pc see if that helps. If not then i have other stuff you can do just let me know.
