    Hello,

    I have strong signal and it shows that I am connected to the Internet. However, I am getting a "Cannot Find Server" message.

    I have a HP Pavillion ze4500 with XP and I am using Belkin Wireless Router 54g F5D7230-4.

    Please help me solve this problem.

    --Kia

    With just one site? Which one? It may be experiencing difficulties.

    It is for all sites that I try. I just got this message "Internet Explorer cannot open search page".

    If you're really connecting to the internet then the problem is likely a non-Windows firewall or security suite (or even another security application whose data definitions are out of date). Let's check that internet connection ...

    Start, Run, CMD, OK to open a command prompt:
    (For Vista or 7 type CMD in the Search box after Start)

    Type the following commands:

    IPCONFIG /ALL

    [Note that there is no space between the slash and ALL.]

    ping 209.191.122.70

    ping yahoo.com


    Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter.
    Paste the results in a message here.

    If necessary use a text file and removable media to copy the results to a computer with internet access.

    Try a dynamic connection. In this article you, of course, want to select your wireless connection instead of the Local Area Connection.
