Internet connection and non-connection

1109 Views 9 Replies 2 Participants Last post by  mobo
Lately my internet connection "connects" but I get the page not found message and cannot do anything. I immediately disconnect and re-connect and everything works.

Is there a specific file on the computer that controls this sort of thing? As it works properly most of the time, I don't suppose there is too much wrong but these double connections are costing money and are very annoying. As far as I know my TCP/IP settings are correct and as I said, it connects properly most of the time. I want it to connect properly all of the time.

Thanks

mobo - what is the problem with B9? This is a programme that is used in conjunction with Mailwasher and neutralises web bugs, scripts etc from the email. Is it causing problems?

You think I should get rid of Star Downloader?

Thanks
Thanks, mobo - will do as you say - Star Downloader claims to contain no spyware etc but one never knows. Might take a while to see if it makes any difference as this is an intermittent problem - for example, yesterday twice had to re-connect whereas this morning - no problem at all.

Thanks for the help.
mobo -when I connected tonight and tried to get my mail via Mailwasher through to Eudora, I got a message: host not found etc etc. So I had to restore the Host file from HijackThis so I could get my mail. Any ideas? Thanks
