View Full Version : I'm not sure if this is the right forum for not,

I'm not sure if this is the right forum for not, but I'm sure that someone will send me in the right direction if it isn't . I have a Toshiba M200 that must have an Internet explorer switch set incorrectly . Certain websites will hang and not complete . The problem seems to be specific to the Toshiba because my desktop will go straight through to the website . This also occurs on downloads . The download will begin and then just stopped in the middle . On occasion a stop and refresh will allow the website to completely load and other times it won't .
I have compared my Internet settings of the desktop with the Toshiba and all seem to be the same . I have a suspicion that the problem may be in the security area . But I have checked all of those settings and cannot find anything out of the ordinary .
Any help would be greatly appreciated .

I have two words for you--Mozilla and Netscape. Have you downloaded the latest Windows update for Internet Explorer? I noticed a lot of improvements after the update. The only trick is that you need to look for the security bar that pops up and asks if you want to continue downloading from a page that contains ActiveX controls or executable files. Also check if the page has been blocked due to pop-ups. (On a side note, the updates to IE make it a much better browser, almost on par with Mozilla). If you do not have the update, try installing it via Windows update.

You can start by clearing your cache and all offline content.
See Tools | Internet Options | Temporary Internet files
For me, a lot of problems went away when I turned off "automatically detect settings"
See Tools | Internet Options | Connections | Lan Settings
uncheck - automatically detect
Oh - and run Windows Update to make sure that you have the latest version of the browser.

Thanks to both of you. Unfortunately I have tried all ideas mentioned, save the automatic settings detection. I have even tried Mozilla. It appears that it has something to do with my wireless connection. I f I hardwire the M200 directly to the router the problem goes away.
I will try the detction settings suggestion and let you know.

I have seen similar problems solved by lowering the MTU setting in the router config to 1000. No guarantee it will fix your problem.

I think I found the problem. Power Management was set to maximize the battery regardless of where power was coming from. Reset to full power and all seems to be well.
