I'm not sure if this is in the right forum or not ? I have a Company supplied Laptop running Vista Home Basic.
It is hard wired to my wireless router and works perfect when I'm logged in as myself... but... when I log in as the administrator (I have the correct password) I can't get on the net via Internet Explorer. The icon in the Task Bar shows I'm connected, as does the Network Map in Control Panel. Am I missing something here.
Help please !!!!!!!!

Find Internet Options (probably from the Tools menu) and under Connections / Network Settings, check your proxy settings are correct or disabled.
