    I'm connecting through wireless router, everything works fine, Except......
    When I open a webpage with a video on it, the entire video window is like a
    popup button and a hover window says "click here to activate this control"
    then if I click it, I still can't view the video, at times windows media
    player will launch and tell me I am not connected to the internet, although
    I am.....Outlook Express also says this upon opening, you are not connected
    to the internet, work off-line or try again....once I click try again,
    everything is fine.... Why is it not recognizing me as being online when I
    am ?

    Also, (I know I know...enuff already... lol) If I open media player and
    click "online stores" or try to access a video online it says work offline
    selected, (but it isn't, I checked in Media Player file menu)
    You must be connected to the internet.... ???????

    helpppppppp lol

  2. Hi
    I do not thing it is a Wireless Network problem, it seem that your computer
    OS/Software is Not set correctly to work with Video.
    May be you should try one of the Media newsgroup.
