Everytime I open up IE or Outlook Express, I get a box that pops up titled

"Would you like to go offline?
No connection to the internet is currently available. To view internet content that has been saved to your computer, click Work Offline.
Click Try Again to attempt to connect.
Options:
Work Offline Try Again"


Then I click Try Again and it connects me. Then every time my auto send/receive goes off or I go to another website, I get the same box.

Can somebody help me out?

Thanks!

It sounds like your internet serivce provider is taking it's time assigning you an IP. Some of them are getting short of IPs and handing them out as needed so it takes them a few seconds to give you a new one. You might check with

www.ipchicken.com

a few times and see if you have a new IP each time. If so, that is what is happening.

I did that a couple of times and IPChicken is saying that I have the same IP address. I even got a couple of those internet connection errors pop up while doing this.

I guess I'm not the only one that doesn't know the answer to this problem. It seems nobody else does either

If somebody can please help I would greatly appreciate it. This is a huge annoyance everytime I'm on the internet or checking my email.

I think that you might have your Outlook to hang up once finished doing a send and receive.

To my last reply.

Try this:

Open outlook express.

Tools>options>Connections.

If Hang up after sending and receiving is ticked, then untick it
