Well, its somewhat of an explaination but here goes:
My friends machine keeps getting an error. It happens only upon first launch of internet explorer. It can’t seem to find a connection to the internet and there is a pop window with a button to “try again”, after which clicking the web connection works right away and google homepage launches. It is a shared cable connection off a D-Link DI-604 wired router. Also, after clicking try again, IE thereafter works fine on each launch attempt with other new ie windows. It happens ONLY when initially trying to go on line and only with IE.
Also, this happens only after setting up a small network for a shared laser printer. Prior to setting up shares, IE works fine on first try. This happens on two machines set up to share the laser printer. Maybe it’s a registry setting, or something simple I overlooked? It’s an annoying little nag but I was wondering if anyone knew a fix.
here is the error:
