Hello.
I'm running W10 and IE11. Earlier my internet connection went down but now has come back up. There is a noise problem on my line and the disconnection is expected behaviour. But, since the connection came back my browser will only access https capable sites, no http. This is a pain because a lot of my Favourites are http only. As a matter of fact, even some https sites wont download. There are far too many of these instances to be just sites going down etc. Does this sound like a setting has changed somewhere, or maybe could the poor connection be causing an issue, even though everything was working as normal until the system went down for a while, and the noise problem is not new.
Cheers

The problem appears to be solved. I followed a link to google help web site (cant remember which) with a suggestion to do the following:- Go To Internet Tools> Internet Options> Connections> LAN settings. and then I in-ticked the Automatically Detect Settings box, and the browser works as before. There are actually 3 boxes on the LAN page, and the original poster had in-ticked all three to solve the problem, but only one of My boxes was ticked. Unfortunately I was in such a hurry to try it out that I didn't make note of the web site, or the users name, so I can't give proper credit, for which I apologise.
