This machine I am using is on it's last leg. For the past several months, every now and then, I hear a "clunk, clunk" from within the machine. It's nearly ready to be buried.
Anyway, I have another computer that is ready to take it's place. It works great. When connected to the net, it shows packets being sent and received, but when I try to use the browser, messenger or anything that needs a connection, the various software act like there is no connection to the net.
It seems to me I need to make a simple change somewhere in the machine but I don't know where. I checked under Connection settings and it shows the internet connection is active. There is something I am overlooking. Anyone have any idea whats wrong? I want to get the thing working before this one completely dies which based on what it did last night, it can die any minute.
Thanks very much!
