    Hello,

    My laptop is able to connect to the internet, browse facebook, email, and the like, but when I try to connect to "application servers" (Thats the best way I can describe it) I am told that I dont have an internet connection or that I cant connect to the server at this time. Like I said, I am perfectly able to access the internet, but when I try to register my Kindle application with my account, or when I try to connect to the ubisoft servers to play Assassins Creed 2, or when I try to register my Byki application (language learner software) I am unable to connect. I'm not a tech expert, but I know enough about computers to tinker and look for problems, and have looked into everything I can think of.

    I don't believe its an issue with my wifi because other laptops using the same home wifi network are able to do the very things that my computer cant. I am in portugal for a few months, but again, the computer right next to me has no problems registering the same applications. Any help would greatly appreciated.
