I'm real sorry for adding yet another one of these 101 threads on the ever- growing pile, but I'm far too technologically inept to fix this.
If you need any specs or info, I'll try to provide them, since I don't know what's relevant and what isn't.
The problem is what you might have already guessed: Google Chrome, all other browsers cannot connect to any websites except Gmail, which is consistent. Maybe some fe other sites i can't remember. Also, it cannot connect to google.com itslef, but when I use gchromes search function with google, Ican search hp anything, except all links result in a 101 connection interrupted error.
I'm almost positive that its not a problem with my wireless, as the error appears equally consistently whether using home wireless or any other connection.
the problem is either the hardware or software on the computer, but i dont know, cannot diagnose, and do not know how to fix the problem.
Also, changing the MTU did not work.

Ah, and one more thing that may be of use: the connection is never truly interrupted; downloads, once started, will download even as the site I downloaded from becomes a 101 error.

I'm rather sorry for being inconsistent, but theres yet another thing i just remembered.
when troubleshooting the connection, there s an error that is always detected but never fixed: "a network cable may be improperly plugged in or broken"
