    Have a look at this entry and make sure it says connect automatically. You can get there by clicking you internet connection icon on the right, and then you own connection.

    It sounds like you are connecting only to your router, which gives the wrong info that you are actually connected to the internet

    Hi Hugo, welcome to the TSG Forums..... :D

    A couple of questions so that we can understand your setup at the moment.

    Q1 - How are you connecting to TSG. Another Laptop, PC, Phone..?

    Q2 - You state ".... My laptop says that I'm connected to the internet ....". What utility on your Laptop are you using to get this information..?

    Q3 - Do you normally connect via a Broadband Router..? If "yes" are other Internet devices able to connect..?
