Helping people with computers... one answer at a time.
Read the article that everyone's commenting on.
Quoting Terri, "Every time I try to log on myspace.com I will get a message saying internet explorer cannot display the webpage. I have tried everything I tried what you mention above and still cannot access myspace, this problem just occured a couple of days ago, please help."
Same Problem here, any suggestions? Not only Myspace either, there are a few others which I cannot access, including my work email!!
It was fine 2 days ago, but yesterday and today....... NIGHTMARE!!
Many thanks for any suggestions!
Leo-you're the man!
Your suggestions led me to do the following which fixed my Belkin Wireless not connecting to Hotmail.
I installed the Microsoft TCP v6 (comes with XP) which included Turedo Tunelling so this handled the NATing side.
I adjusted the MTU on my wireless card (previously had just been changing it on the Belkin router).
Both of these changes-inspired by you-fixed my long standing problem-many thanks!
I tried the MTU settings, but when I did it everything was blank or set to default. I still tried the two different settings and it's not working. I can't access myspace from home on either of my computers but I can at work using my laptop, so I believe it's something to do with my internet. I tried rebooting the box and the router but it didn't work. Please help. I have family all over the world and this is the only easy way we have to keep in touch.
Some folks are having trouble using DrTCP on Windows Vista. I must admit it has worked fine for me, but you can make the registry change yourself.
The Vista registry key is:
Under this key are a number of others, including one for each of your installed network cards/devices. You can find an MTU subkey under each device and change the (DWORD) value to whatever you like. I chose 0x00000578 (1400).
My Belkin ADSL2+ Modem with Wireless G Plus MIMO Router have a defaulted MTU = 1432. I change to 1492 as suggested by Leo and now i can access to microsft & msn. I wonder if Belkin have some bad blood with microsoft or sometihng2.. anyways,. Cheers to Leo...
Nice site! :)
I do have a wireless connection problem, hope you can help to resolve the issue. See, the problem is we do have an internet connection (1 laptop is fully connected and can browse all sites) and the other can only access certain sites. I have tried most things but seem to fail.
Can you kindly respond in this situation...

Hello, firstly my windows xp professional is in spanish, i donīt know if this effects the Dr TCP when I downloaded the program it detected my connection
Broadcom 440x 10/100 integrated controller but the MTU box was empty where it should have said a figure. Anyway we just had our router replaced by the ISP and with the new router we started having this exact problem accessing hotmail with outlook through messenger, and manually. I rang the ISP and gave them an earful and told me that i was nothing to do with them. The connection works with other routers in my computers reach. Its really FRUSTRATING!! any ideas what could be the problem? If you could help iīd really appreciate it.

I am now going to call you Dr Leo!!! Even Saint Leo! I have been battling all week with problems on my small business network - client computers just started having problems connecting to websites without any explanation. I don't know why this happened but I have tried everything to fix it. Tried your DrTCP device and even though I didn't have any MTU value, setting it to 1492 has cured all problems. Thank you!!
i cant see any where to start a new question on this site so ill post this here and hopefully youl be able to help , i had a power cut and put this XP PC in the fixit shop to get past the "blue screen" since ive had it back the "desktop backgrounds" have been dissabled in display options , theyre still there but non selectable and unable to scrole them up or down , the colour options are active and thats about it - when i go to a picture and right click and choose set as background the image doest apear , allthough when i boot this PC up it shows the background ive selected and then it dissapears when my desktop loads and all i can see is one of the color options and sometimes when i have a glitch on the desktop display i can see the image showing through the glitch, ive google this extensivly and found many other people having the same problem but with no answeres, i did find something on the windows help page about background wallpaper probs , they say to go into the (MMC) microsoft management console) and open --
Local Computer Policy
