    Hi everyone. Was wondering if you could assist. At work I've been using a specific LAN number to access the Internet. Today the IT administrator has changed the LAN to default and removed the Connections tab under Internet Explorer so that I cannot change the LAN number, at least not via the usual route of Tools, Internet Options, Connections, LAN Settings.

    My question basically is there any other way to change the LAN settings Proxy Server number other than the "Connections" tab, either by way of going into the registery or the Administrative Tools or even in DOS. Is this possible or is there some way of getting the Connections tab back, or if I brought in an updated Internet Explorer and downloaded it again at work would I be able to change it?

    Any and all help is very much appreciated, thank you very much!!

    We won't help circumvent restrictions placed on machines by your company's administration. You'll have to contact them to get this changed.
