    I keep getting an unable to connect message when i try using mozilla but i can easily connect to the web using internet explorer etc. Now at first i reset the button on the back of the router and mozilla worked, but then again it has just started playing up. Its the lateset version and i only downloaded it about 5 mins ago. Ive tried the offline setting but thats ok and i cant think of anything else???

    Any ideas people

    Eddie,

    I assume you have a direct connection and not going via a proxy?

    If so, is this the configuration displayed in the network settings?

    Yes i have direct connection. With the wireless not working as well would that cause some sort of conflict??? I mean wireless for mozilla and the direct for internet explorer, why would is just go all funny like that??

    Eddie,

    Is this problem bound to a computer or browser?
    Please clarify the complete set-up and what is not working.

    zx - are you using wireless for FF and hardwired for IE??? if so, why the strange combination as i am confused by

    the basics:

    * what make and model is your router?
    * when your connection drops, whats your ipconfig/all results?
    * confirm that you are using XP, if not which OS?

    Eddie,

    Under the connection option, make sure it looks similar to the attached.

    Just to clarify
    The make of router is a netgear DG834G 54Mbps Wireless ADSL. The computer is connected via ethernet, am i right in classing that as a direct connection??

    The connection doesnt drop as internet explorer still works

    I cant get passed the encryption. I want to set this up wirelessly an i have got a belkin reciever for that and the siganle strenght is very good. But when it asks me for the wireless key i dont know where im looking for it.

    I would of thought the routers manual would of tle me where is is and how to put it in etc, but the router is part of an AOL bundle and there was no manual on the router??

    There should have been some docs with the AOL bundle giving that info.

    If you have lost this info then, using the direct ethernet connection, navigate to the pages in the router that setup the AP.

    On some routers the password will be visible. On others it won't, so on that type just set a new password.

    Is this the same problem as this thread? It sounds almost identical - except a different model router!
