Windows 7: Cannot login to certain websites in any browser

25 Jun 2011   #1

Windows Home Premium 64 Bit
Cannot login to certain websites in any browser

Hi, I recently bought a new Asus Laptop and am having difficulty login into some of my universities pages with the new computer (namely outlook web access and some library login pages). This happens regardless of connection type (LAN, WLAN and Mobile Broadband). I have reset IPCONFIG and other network settings and have disabled anti-virus software to no avail. So far, my universities website is the only one it is having difficulty with with other websites like facebook having no problems logging in. This happens regardless of browser also. In internet explorer, some of the images fail to load on the page (indicating the page won't fully load) and this is obviously followed by the fact that page says 'connection error' after clicking the login button and waiting around 30 seconds. It is also evident that this is not an issue on the university's side, with nobody else I know having experienced this problem.

Any help on this issues would be greatly appreciated.

Accessing websites without a browser

Browser does not connect websites unless I re-enter URL or hit F5
This problem started about a month ago. Many sites (not all) will not connect anymore unless I re-enter the URL or press F5 repeatedly. A few sites will not connect at all. Downloads give a message that the file or program cannot be downloaded, but if I press “try again”, it says resuming,...

Browser keeps forgetting how to get to websites...
I have a strange networking problem - my browsers seem to keep forgetting where certain websites are, but just for a couple of minutes at a time. So I can be happily browsing a website, then suddenly it will just start timing out and I won't be able to access at all for 2-3 minutes, then all of...

Attempting to login to most websites results in login page refreshing.
When I attempt to log in to many sites (Hotmail, youtube, steam community, razerzone, thinkgeek, my bank, etc.) after hitting "login" the page refreshes to show both the username and password fields blank and I am not logged in. I'm running Windows home premium 64bit, and I'm using Firefox...
