I have a problem with my Internet Help?

I connected to a hotspot that is available for Me to connect to. I connected to one, then I went to the little bars
to make sure it's actually connected, It says "Internet Access" (Windows7) Which means it's connected. Then I clicked
on Internet Explorer, to go on the Internet, and It says.. "Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage" Then I clicked on
"Diagnose Connection problem" It started to detect the problem.. When it was finished it said..
"Website (Yahoo!) is online but isn't responding to connection attempts."


I went to Tools, Internet Options, LAN Settings, and I checked the First two boxes. Where it says "Address"
I put in "www.yahoo.com" then I went back, and went on the Internet but It still says ---------------------------
"Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage" Then I went back to Tools, Internet Options, and took off
"www.yahoo.com" then tried again, then I went back to the Internet but it still said the same thing saying-----
"Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage" Then I clicked on "Diagnose Connection problem" and it ----
started detecting the problem.. and when it was finished detecting it said...---------------------------------…
"Windows could not automatically detect this network's proxy settings."

--------------------------------------…

Someone said to me..

You only want "Automatically detect settings" checked. The second check box if for a configuration script or the like to setup IE settings. That is really only used by company's that want specific home pages and other settings set to match their networks.

If anything is checking in the "Proxy Server" area, I would uncheck it as you won't go through a proxy since you are connecting to a hotspot. It is pretty rare for public locations to use proxy servers.

I did what He said but i still ended up having the same issue as i did in the beginning this one..

Hi, Go to network and sharing center-change adaptor settings then click on the relevant device and properties then post what it shows.
The other thing you can try is open network and sharing center then setup a new network with either set up a new connection or network or connect to a network But choose public network not home as i have found when i go to a coffee shop or use my friends wifi connections i get less issues using public network.
