    connected to the internet...when i am :-( me thinks this was a big mistake
    d'loading IE 7 on Sept 9 when i only wanted to update my MSWinXP Home SP2 on
    another laptop that has been connecting to the internet with IE 6 ; i got
    attracted [distracted] by the note at the d'load page about the IE 7
    progressing from its beta version and "now ready for d'load!"

    -immediately after, the d'load, it was working great....6 hrs later after i
    return from school, it was giving me this message about not being connected
    to the internet
    -really am connected w/ excellent signal, and 100% status on LAN [wireless
    link thru another laptop connected to internet by ethernet cable-adhoc
    network set up following instructions from a microsoft document called AdHoc
    Internet Sharing in Windows XP
    -the ad hoc sharing is still "working" except IE7 won't connect to
    websites/internet, and when "Diagnose Connection Problems" is run all it
    tells is no connection to internet; website encountering problems; typing
    error in the address;DNS not reachable,etc. -all not manageable for me :-(

  2. Open a cmd window and use the following (3) commands to check
    on your link's status as far as Windows knows:

    ipconfig /all

    That simulates some of what Diagnose Connections Problems must do.
    If you can't get normal responses from those it could help explain your symptom.

    BTW did you click on the dialog's View diagnostic log button?
    I think that that should have given you more detailed diagnostics
    than you are describing.

    To see the same thing without using the dialog, open:

    %windir%\network diagnostic\xpnetdiag.xml

    I have never actually seen a failure report so I'm curious to know
    what one looks like. ; )
