what does xml.parsers.expat.ExpatError: not well-formed (invalid token): mean

There is a portion of my program that has to go on the internet and  grab data and I have it working fine and if there is no internet then I just Pass the exception... the problem comes in when the computer is connected to the internet but the computer cant access internet ie needs pass word or must log on.... I get the error below Ive tried to create an excpetion but it doesnt work... so is there another error that I should use to catch this or is there a module I should import ?
