Hi Karen, It sounds like your problem is just in the settings of you Internet Explorer..

This is what you need to do
go to your menu
When you pull this down you will see
"Internet Option"
on the bottom of the menu that pulls down click on this. Now you get another dialog box that pops up.
Click on the tab that says
make sure it is set to "connect to the internet using a modem"
Then click on "settings"
now in this area make sure all settings are set properly.
put in your account info etc..

Well hope that works for ya if not e-mail me

Thanks Simon, You've put me back on track. I had the 'Never dial a connection' option marked within settings. Really pleased it was something so simple. Thanks again
