    I have a Dell Inspirion B130 Laptop with a Dell Wireless 1370 WLAN Mini-PCI Card.
    Windows XP

    ~No previous problems with this~

    At home I have to use Dial-Up, because where I live DSL and Cable are not available yet.

    I am a student at a local college, last semester I accessed their wireless service with no problem coming home and using my dial-up.

    The other day I took my laptop to school, I connected to the service, but I could not access any sites, I kept getting the page error message.

    So, I brought my LT home and connected to my dial-up, now I am unable to access any webpage that involves a password, I can get to the login page, but then I get the "cannot open page error".

    I have reformatted, and it is still doing the same thing...

    Any ideas?

    And what setting do I need to change to access sites after I am connected to the wireless at school?

    I did turn pop-up blocker, my firewall, cleaned my cookies and temp files, I am dumb-founded right now! :confused:

    I know this is something simple!

    TIA
