    Hope I am asking in the right forum.

    I have a Dell latitude D600 laptop. I use Windows XP.

    My laptop has a built in wireless card, and I am using a wireless connection at the library or one at the airport.

    Suddenly, in the last week I have had problems logging in to certain accounts like my Wordpress blog.

    I enter what I now to be the correct username & password, and the resulting screen says:

    "Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage

    Most likely causes:
    You are not connected to the Internet.
    The website is encountering problems.
    There might be a typing error in the address.

    What you can try:
    Diagnose Connection Problems

    More information"

    This notice will appear when I preess the submit button to enter some other membership sites but not all.

    When I am on the library wireless connection and have to choose the "filtered" or "unfiltered" version, the following happens.
    After clicking a series of links, when I get to the very last link that will make things operational, I get the same "Internet Explorer
    cannot display the webpage" notice I mentioned above when trying to log into my Wordpress blog.

    However, when I refresh the page, sometimes the last link will come up in the library sequence and I am able to complete the access.

    When I try refreshing the page in the login attempts, I am just returned to the login page where I have to re-enter my username and
    password data.

    This problem is causing me major problems, and I don't have a clue as to the solution.

    Your help would be greatly appreciated.

    Robert
