Hello!

I bought my daughter a Compaq Mini for Christmas and about a week ago, she tried getting online and kept getting the "Internet Explorer Can't Display the Webpage" error but, it was getting a strong signal from the router and just like always, the connection type and name of our router was displayed in the icon tray.
I tried resetting the router & modem. I cleared the internet Cookies and History. I even reset the router settings from the netbook.
So then, I hooked the netbook directly up to the modem and it worked so, I'm assuming that the problem isn't with internet explorer.
What else can I do?
Thanks!

Sounds like you have a bad connection between the wireless card and the motherboard. In other words, the wireless card is getting a signal, but that signal isn't getting to the computer.

Is it under warranty? Also, I assume you've tried to "repair" the connection within the Network Connections?
