You're checking for proxy settings . Can you connect to the Internet directly from your modem ? What error do you get when you try to input the router's IP address ?

Same "unable to access the network" or "network not available" error, with or without a direct connection to the router (I have it plugged in now).

Can you open Command Prompt ?

Open up a Command Prompt. Click on in type CMD . Command Prompt opens up to C:\Users\<UserName>\Desktop>_

Type ping google.com press <Enter>

You do have connectivity . Something in IE is blocking it from connecting .

Very frustrating. Seems like we've tried everything there is to try...
netsh winhttp import proxy source = FireFox doesn't work
netsh winhttp set proxy _ _ _ _ _ _ _ if I knew a proxy that worked could I put it in there? any way to figure out what FF is using?
grrrrrrrrrrrrr

You don't need proxy in a home network . Proxy is mainly used inside enterprise environments

So, is it over? Should I format and reinstall or are there still options?
