    After uninstalling IE7 Beta3 over add/remove Programs I returned to IE6 SP2.
    I have a strange behaviour with IE6. It always tell me to be in Offline mode
    If I would like to connect to the internet. But I have an activ internet
    When I close IE6 window and open a new one, sometimes it works an I have
    a internet connection, sometimes not.

    In Windows Media Player 10 I can't get an internet connection at all. Works
    without problems before installing IE7.

    Any ideas? Thanks. Oliver

  2. Use System Restore to go back to before you installed IE7.
    I tried IE7 Beta but didn't like it, and I had no problems after
    uninstalling it.

  3. Internet Explorer Starts in Offline Mode and Remains Offline

    HOWTO: Set Work Offline as the Default for Internet Explorer

    Error Message When You Try to Use Internet Explorer: No Connection to the
    Internet Is Currently Available;EN-US;q303346

    Unable to gain access to internet sites when 'dial whenever a network
    connection is not present' setting is enabled with ADSL/DSL

    Also, as advised by Robert Aldwinckle (Robert has been kind enough to let me
    reproduce his advice here ... thanks Robert) regarding this problem with

    "The usual explanation is that the DSL software is PPPoE which only
    provides a connection once it is started. To IE/OE it looks like a
    dial-up link which hasn't been started and an ambiguous state. Does the user
    want to connect (Try Again) or work offline?

    There are various workarounds. If your OS is Windows 2000 you could try:

    Cannot Connect to Internet Using Shared DSL Connection and PPPoE [Q306947];EN-US;Q306947

    If your DSL software has a feature called Dial-on-Demand this site
    suggests that IE likes it better

    That link is specifically meant for Sympatico users but I think that there
    may be other services mentioned on the site. In any case it may give you a
    new idea.

    More general solutions are given on this site

    If your DSL software is a version of Enternet both sites warn that you need
    to make sure that you have the latest version. That is one of the things
    mentioned on this page (further down from that item)...."

    Hi Mike,

    Windows XP was not able to make a system restore before installing IE7 Beta3.

    I found the solution to my problem:

    My internet provider in germany is T-Online.
    T-Online provides a special software called "T-Online Startcenter" to
    an internet connection. After the connection is established, I can start MS
    Explorer, MS Outlook, MS Media Player, etc.

    After installing IE7 Beta3 in the internet options on the folder
    "Connections" under
    "Dial-up and Virtual Private Network settings" the option "Always dial my
    default connection" was set.

    That was wrong! It must be set to "Never dial a connection", because the
    connection already exists.

    Changing this setting everything is working well again. With IE6 ;-)
