Cannot view web pages in browser

By bcolley ·
Under Windows 95, I dial-up to the internet with seemingly no problems; however, when I open a web browser (IE or Netscape) I get a error. IE says DNS -- Netscape says invalid network setup or not enough resources. The confusing thing is that the email works ok. In the same way FTP works ok. Only the browser is giving me problems.

I have uninstalled IE, Netscape, and the dial-up networking. After doing that I ran RegClean. Reinstalling the programs did not correct the problem.

I have verified that IE is setup to automatically obtain an IP address. Also, it does not use a proxy. Any other ideas?

Check the browser Security settings,Open the browser and click on Help menu and go down the list to About IE when the window opens look to see what security settings you have and then click the upgrade button.
In Netscape you will have to click on the File Menu and click on preferences and the security settings and upgrade the settings.
Also you may want to check for any Service Packs for the IE version.

Changing the browser security settings did not help

Hi,
It seems that your Internet provider filtered default port 80 of WWW. Try to access this URL http://www.filesearch.ru:8000
and if connection is successfull it is mean that your provider filtered out port 80 for connections and you have to access web pages throw proxy server.In this case ask your provider about address of his proxy server.

I was not able to reach this site -- even when I entered the 8000 port number.

Try this, since I dont know about your ISP,
remove NIC, or Dial up adapter) reboot, then reinstall NIC and TCP/IP, or Dial-up adapter.

This will replace you TCP/IP stack - If you are dialing in then your ISP is using a DHCP server of some flavor, contact them and verify infomation obtained.

What RegClean Does
RegClean analyzes Windows Registry keys that are stored in HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT in the Windows Registry. It finds keys that contain erroneous values, and after recording those entries in an Undo.reg file, it removes them from the Windows Registry.
What RegClean Does Not Do

RegClean does not fix every known problem with the registry. It does not fix a "corrupt" registry; it is limited to fixing problems with normal Windows Registry entries located in HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT.

It is very possible that RegClean will not correct a problem that you have encountered. RegClean will leave any entries in the registry that it does not understand or that could possibly be correct.

It seems that the TCP/IP was causing the problem -- thanks for the suggestion

Although you reinstalled dial-up netowrking, did you check the properties of your connection while in your respective browsers? Proxy server settings in you dial-up connection will override your browser settings, and those settings can remain even after reinstallation of DUN. Also, the proxy settings for the DUN connection can only be accessed through the browser.

ISP dosen't use a proxy server so these settings are turned off.

This appears that your computer network settings for hte DNS address are incorrect. Some ISP's require specific DNS addressses added to the dial-up configuration. Please check with your ISP if you require DNS entries. They can be set in the properties of your dial-up connection. Your ISP should be able to walk you thourhg making sure these settings are correct.

I verified that the DNS addresses were correct.
