I've been having this problem for awhile now. I open programs such as Itunes, Bit torrent, even DVD's with internet extra's and they all pop up with check to see if you are connected to the internet. My internet is working fine. I can Google up a storm no problem. I have Windows Firewall on however all of these programs are allowed thru so it's not that. I have no Proxy settings in Firefox. Any ideas? Please?
