    Hi I have a dell laptop that has weird internet issues. First, it CAN connect to the because AOL Instant Message works fine, but when you go on Internet Explorer, nothing shows up. It can't access any web pages or anything. Anyone have a clue as to the issue? Thanks!

    I'm not going to slam you for using a Windows machine. I'm not going to highlight the fact this is a Mac board. I'm not even going to tell you how difficult it is to help you without knowing a little more about your set up such as how you connect to the internet and what your network is like.

    Instead, I'm going to just say it's probably a proxy issue but I can't go much further until I know:

    Which version of Windows?
    What sort of firewall?
    What sort of antivirus?
    How do you connect to the internet? Wireless/wired?
    Is the instant messenger the only thing that can connect at the moment?
    Can you throw the Dell out of a tall building and get away with just using the iBook for the rest of eternity? :)
