    Are you using Vista / 7? If you are, go to Network and Sharing Centre and see what it says under "Access"

    If it says "Local only", that'll be your problem. It's some annoying bug in Vista and 7 - will give you some info to look over if that is the problem..

    Hi

    If you need help, I can lend a hand after all I run an IT Consultancy Firm so hopefully I can get to the bototm of it. I have 10 minutes spare.

    Thanks

    firewall means nothing to me as i say i know nothing :P lol

    and stefone noticed you were from thornton is that right ?

    it seems to be connected to wireless and internet thats why im confused

    If it says "Local and internet" then there's no problem there. Must be something else.. :-/

    Can you not get on any websites? It could be that your wireless router has dropped the connection to your Internet service provider. Try turning it off, leaving it for a minute and then turning it on again..

    You could get the Microsoft Fix it program onto your laptop by downloading the file with a working computer, putting it on a USB stick (if you have one) and transferring it over to the laptop.
