My Internet Explorer I think is busted. It tells me that I am not connected to the internet but when I try AOL, I can perfectly browse from one site to another.
I did try to remove Internet Explorer from the Add/Remove Windows component, then added it again. Sadly, it won’t work still.
I want to browse using Internet Explorer too. Kindly help.
Could not browse using IE only, it says No Connection.
I assume your ISP is AOL. When you installed the AOL software, it installed an AOL adapter in your computer's Network properties so that you will be able to make a 32-bit TCP/IP connection to AOL. To get around this problem, do these:
Go to Start > Control Panel
Click Internet Options
Open tab Connections
On the bottom you will see Local Area Network Settings. Click on the Lan Settings button.
Uncheck the ""Use the same proxy server for all protocols""
Clear the contents of all the boxes below the ""Proxy addresses to use""
When it asks ""Do you want to turn off the proxy connection?"", click No.
Now you should be able to browse using your IE.
Alternatively, you can get the newest version of Internet Explorer from https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/17621/internet-explorer-downloads . Unlike the previous version, it's compatible with AOL.
