How do you connect to the internet? Wired? Wireless? Do you use a usb connected wired or wireless device?
Are you using cable internet? DSL? dialup? or something else?
What ethernet and wireless devices does your netbook use? And are the proper drivers loaded?
Everything was pre-installed - I have not added anything.
Connection to internet is wireless to an Orange router.
The wireless device within the netbook is the one that came pre-installed - I have not altered anything.
Assume proper drivers are loaded - been using netbook for more than two years and this has only happened once before.
The last time I fixed it, someone said to go to Terminal, which I did, enter a small "programme", hit the return, and it was fixed.
your help, or anyones help would be great.
