i have a dell inspiron desktop. it will not connect to the internet though it shows that i have a connection. my son has a laptop and he can get on the internet. i can also connect to the internet with my iPhone and iPad. when i open up IE and firefox the page is blank. i can type in google in the search bat in the corner and google comes up. i can do a search in google and as soon as i click a link it says that i am not connected anymore. i can also click any of the bookmarks on the toolbar and they sometimes work.
