Hello! I am having some trouble with IE. About 75% of the time I try to connect, I just get a "page cannot be displayed" error. I am running a DSL connection and I called the support line and they told me everything is fine on their end. I tried to use the ping system and it I got no response. I told the DSL tech that I received no response and he said it was not on his end and thats all he knew to do. I went through the computer and made sure everything was cleaned out and all the little maintenance things were done. But I still can't get a good connection. Is it just the DSL acting up or could it be something else? Thanks

Try this (if you haven't already) when you shut your computer down, first close IE and then shut down or hibernate. After restarting wait until you can see that the computer has reconnected to web. Then start IE. If this works I think the problem is that IE is trying to connect too soon.
