Hi,

My taskbar shows that I have an internet connection but Firefox isn't able
to connect with the internet lately.
Don't know if this happened after I installed a DVD copying program.
Any suggestions as to how to get Firefox connecting again?
Thunderbird also cant connect.

What exactly on your "taskbar" is showing that you have internet connection?

Or is it that whatever in on your taskbar is simply showing that your
computer is connected to the modem - but has nothing to do with being
connected to the internet.
Just the connect symbol shows. So perhaps you are right that it only
indicates that the computer is connected to the Router and not to the
internet. I don't know much about internet connections.

but Firefox isn't able to connect with the internet lately.
Don't know if this happened after I installed a DVD copying program.

Why should installing a DVD copying program have anything to do with
connecting to the internet? What are your reasons for concluding this
and asking this question?
Don't know, but Firefox was connecting to the internet before and it has
only been since I installed the DVD copying program that Firefox can't
connect.

Any suggestions as to how to get Firefox connecting again?
Thunderbird also cant connect.

Inability to connect to your ISP is usually caused by having incorrect
settings - including account name and password - in your modem's
configuration or the wrong settings in your Firefox and Thunderbird
configuration. Have you checked these out to ensure that they are correct?

Well they were before and I haven't altered anything except sometime
back I changed the password to log in to the router from admin to
another but that hasn't stopped Firefox in WIN 7 from accessing the
internet.
