    ive tired to download firefox, that never connected to the internet.

    going on hotmail doesnt work either, it just says page cannot be displayed, but it works on all the other computers ive been on!
    My avg7.5 didnt update, neither does my mcafee, it tells me to check for updates then i do and it says internet problems retry, it still doesnt work, nothing will update. its completely screwed. ive gathered that it might be something to do with my protocool? maybe?
    i looked in my msconfig services and HTTP SSL has been stopped, ive ticked and restarted it, but its still stopped.
    ive got a belkins 802.11g - 54mbps connecting to a wireless netgear router from a mac adress.

    sounds like your access to your DNS is trashed.

    run this, copy and paste the data in myTcp.txt found in your \docs & settings\yourlogin;

    run->ipconfig /all >myTcp.txt

    also please report the URL for your ISP's home page so I can verify the settings
