Hmmm... my laptop can only go online for 5 minutes or so.. |
AIM, MSN, YAHOO messengers work fine, online games work fine, but web pages don't load.
They do, but only for 5 minutes and I have to reboot if I want to go to web pages again.
The problem occurs with wired / wireless connections. Windows firewall is on, but I put it off to see if it's the problem, and it's not. I have no other firewall. Well, there's the wireless router, but doesn't seem to affect my other laptop like this.
I've tried it on campus with wired and 3 wireless connections, and home with a wireless connections, and the problem keeps happening.
No spyware/viruses/trojans, don't ask about that. It's not that.
Any clue what might be going on?
If I set up a proxy, the net will work, but I don't have my friend's proxy anymore as he's gone to India and the server is down.
... help? :(
.. Like, after I wrote this post for the first time, the connection didn't work when I pressed "update journal"...
