    Hi !

    My comp has win xp home and IE7.

    "internet options -> connections -> lan settings -> automatically detect settings" is checked. However, when I use IE I get "cannot display the webpage" error. At the same time, other browsers like FF and Safari works.

    If I uncheck and then check "automatically detect settings" again, IE starts working.

    How can I fix this issue?

    Thank you for your help.
