You were denied access because: Access denied by access control list.

  1. Apologies for crossposting

    I posed this question before in the XP news group and got a less than
    polite response from
    an inmate intimating that I had been an idle individual for not
    looking elsewhere. Judging by his/her reply I assumed he/she meant
    Google. I'm not idle, stupid maybe, inept probably, desparate
    definitely. I would really like some help please.

    Well I've googled smoogled and and every other bloody oogle and have
    been unable to come up with a reason for the error message. Results 1
    - 10 of about 15,000,000 for You were denied access because:.
    Results 1 - 10 of about 24,200,000 for Access denied by access control

    This is what I get when Internet Explorer (6) launches.

    You were denied access because:
    Access denied by access control list.

    Microsoft's own entry via google was unintelligible to me and was no
    help at all. I don't really care that I can't use Microsoft Internet
    Exlorer as I use exclusively Firefox. However, I cannot download
    updates unless I can use MSIE. And if I'm wrong about this too then
    tell me another way.

    I can do everything on the web that I want to but cannot do it with
    MSIE, I've got XP Home legal and SP2 installed. MSIE 6 too.

    Please help if you can.

    Since I posted the above to XP group I have discovered by trial and
    error that this only happens when I am using my Netgear router. As far
    as I am aware I am using the same set up as original as I saved them
    to file once I had the router up and running and configured.

    If I use another modem (and I have tried two) then I can access the
    web via IE6 and Firefox. If I switch back to the netgear router then I
    get the error message again with IE6 but firefox is OK.

    sounds like your router needs an update. go to netgear and see if your router
    has a new update out.

  3. From another newsgroup help was found by this reply

    Hi William :)

    Are you behind a router by chance?

    If you are using a cable modem or are behind a router then ...

    Control Panel > Internet Options > Connections (TAB) > LAN Settings
    and check that it is set to "Automatically detect settings".

    This was the solution - Thanks were given.
