Is this an IE problem?

Every time i connect to the internet i only get a short while before my connection seems to go dead. It doesn't disconnect but when i try to navigate away from one page to another, to refresh or to go to my home page i get a page not found message.
Some times i can't connect through internet explorer but can connect through outlook - even then when i try to use explorer it goes nowhere.
I'm usin version 6 of IE and outlook if this helps. Please help me i'm geting really desperate and frustrated.

yuo can try reinstalling ie6...


you could also try emptying your temporary internet folder.

Start Internet Explorer.
On the Tools menu, click Internet Options.
Under Temporary Internet files, click Delete...

Butterbean,
   Looks like you are getting a good connection but cannot keep it there. Have check with your Internet Provider and asked them for their DNS number?

In addition downloading the updates, do a repair on Internet Explorer. From Control Panel select Add/Remove Programs. scroll down to Microsoft Internet Explorer and highlight it. Click on the Add/Remove button. When the IE Tools menu comes up, select Repair. Click OK.

Best wishes, war1

when this happens try pinging and tracert
from a prompt type
tracert 206.169.61.185
and see where it times out at
chances are good it's your isp or a router somewhere on the net
