Hi, i have just bought a nc10, everything seems fine, but i am having problems loading certain web pages.
These pages are quite popular (ebay, youtube etc), this problem only occurs when connected wirelessly. I have updated the drivers but no joy. I dont have problems when i have a wired connection. This is a really odd problem, please help soon.

what problem are you actually having ? are the pages not loading ? if not what is happeneing ? are you able to browse other pages normally ?February 24, 2009 at 9:43 pm #184854
I cannot specifically get ebay or youtube pages to load at all, otherwise i can browse most sites without problems.
I do have a choice of browsers firefox & ie8, but ebay and youtube wont load at all with either browser. The pages load fine when i am using a wired connection.
I have a netgear router (wgt624) which has the latest firmware, no other problems. This is weird.

No joys with either ip addresses, but will now reset the router, see if that works. ThanksFebruary 24, 2009 at 10:27 pm #184856
I have now reset the router, the laptop connects fine wirelessly to the internet, however my main problem still persists. I cannot connect to ebay or youtube.
I have noticed that the browser throws me to livesearch, which is microsofts search facility, will change livesearcg to google, see if that helps.
But please throw more tips, as this is an irritating problem, thanks.

Try clearing your browsing history, cookies, temporary files etc in both Firefox and IE and then try accessing those websites again.
Make sure all settings in IE are default for Security, Privacy, Content etc.
Still, none of this would explain why it happens when you’re connected wirelessly and not when you’re connected using a cable.February 24, 2009 at 10:48 pm #184837
Are you running some extra firewall software, or just Windows inbuilt one?
If you run the following command from the command line, what appears?
ping -c 5 184.108.40.206February 24, 2009 at 10:53 pm #184857
I have pinged the ip address above, no problems there, replys came back quick, it did not time out. clearing the file history has made no difference at all, as i can connect by ethernet wire fine to these sites, just not wirelessly.
I am using the 3 month trial version of mcafee that was supplied with the sammy. I will double check if windows firewall is running and turn this off, thanks so far.

have just flushed the dns cache, but still no difference, will not display either ebay or youtube.February 25, 2009 at 12:43 am #184844tikkalaleeMember
did you get rid of live search, i found that was a problem. have you upgraded xp? any additional add on software?February 25, 2009 at 1:10 am #184860
Yes livesearch is not in the browser, i have google instead now, but still no change, i have not added anything to xp as i have just received the laptop.
Nothing else comes to mind, thanks for the suggestion.
