When I sold my business I took one of my work stations home. I am trying to set up a wireless network connection to my wireless router at home. I am receiving a good signal but when I try to access Internet explorer I get a message bottom left side of screen saying detecting proxy settings. Then after a few minutes I get the cannot display web page. I am using windows xp pro with sp2. I bought a USB dwa 130 wireless adapter. Hope some one can help. Thanks. Larry

I have included a picture as an attachment for visual help. Feel free to view it.

Please go in to Internet Explorer, click the Tools menu>Internet options

On the connections tab, please click LAN Settings at the bottom of the window.

You will see something like this:

[ ] Automatically Detect Settings

^ Please make sure that box is unchecked. Then please click OK on both windows and restart your browser.

Can you load webpages?

Thanks I did that. Now I get a page that says server not found, when I try to connect to the internet.

Have you checked your router settings to make sure they have matched up to the adapter?
