I can not get into anything that requires a password.
« on: January 16, 2008, 04:57:21 PM »

Hello, 

I have internet, but I can not sign into any websites that require a password.  So i clicked, diagnose connection problems.  It says that I can not connect to internet using Http, Https, or Ftp ports. 

I read through the other forum questions and answers and tried a couple of things but nothing worked including downloading firefox.

Thanks
Travis
