I use a laptop while on campus. It has a wireless connection and is running XP Home. Also ZoneAlarm and NAV (since I get that free through school).
Since the first part of last week, I cannot get to certain sites using IE - these include the school webmail site, hotmail, the school registration site, global.factiva.com and (I just noticed today), my undergrad’s bulletin board site. I can get to all of these except Factiva using Netscape (Factiva isn’t supported with netscape). I checked my security settings, and they’re at medium - and I don’t have any problem getting to them from my home computer (Windows ME), which has the same security settings. Both computers are running IE6
One thing I’ve noticed is that all of these require passwords and show the secured/padlock icon. My thoughts are that if it were the security settings on the computer, I’d also have problems reaching these sites from Netscape. Since that’s not happening, does anyone have an idea of what might be going on?
