i just bought a compaq AMD SEMPRON Mobile 512 mb ram some crappy nvidia graphics card that runs off of my books ram. with windows xp. I dont really know what I did or when it happened I tried to update Java today, and it said I wasn't connected to the internet. then I tried to install YIM,(it installs as it downloads from yahoo!) and 1/4 of the way through it tell me i'm not connected to the internet. My firewall is off. I tried turning it on and adding these programs to the exceptions. but still no luck. I'm not using a router, I"m connected via ethernet. that's all the information I can really think of right now Thanks in advance!

If you can navigate to different pages, or even bring up a page, you are connected to the internet.
You may have a very slow connexion speed, or your connexion keeps getting disconnected, or your modem may not be functioning correctly.
Check your ISP for its troubleshooting guide.

I ran a speedtest on speakeasy.com and these are the results:

Last Result:
Download Speed: 4444 kbps (555.5 KB/sec transfer rate)
Upload Speed: 354 kbps (44.3 KB/sec transfer rate)

I dont see why I would be getting disconnected being as I'm using broadband.
I guess the next step is to contact Time Warner and tell them to fix it and give me a months free service...:thumbsup: thanks jgweed
