    I was using the internet since I got to college on Saturday, and everything was fine until yesterday. The connection would drop and then pick up again numerous times. The computer dept people came and said my internet was working fine, but not three minutes later I actually tried it for myself and it wasn't, and until they make their rounds I can't get help from them again. My AIM works fine, which means it's not the connection apparently, but every time I open Internet Explorer, it displays a 500 internal server error, which at home at least means I have no connection. Do you think I got frozen out of the network for some reason? Anyone know how to remedy this? No one else in the college is having this problem.

    have a look at the ie connections tab and the settings for how you are connected.
    post details of how you connect - via a lan or dial up - also if the college use a procy server for internet access.

    also try to ping
    cmd (if xp)
    ping www.google.com
    see if you get a response
