    Internet Explorer 11 unable to connect to Internet

    I am happy with the new upgraded Windows 8.1 system. It is working good with some new cool features. Only the problem i am facing is with web browsing. I use Internet Explorer as my default web browsers since years because of its security features. As you all might be aware Windows 8.1 preview comes pre-loaded with IE 11, this browser is not able to connect to internet. My internet connection is working fine. All internet apps as well as other web browsers are able to access internet but when i open IE, it asks me to diagnose the connection. Though i click on Diagnose, nothing happens. Also as this is built-in windows component, i am not able to re-install it. Any help on the same would be appreciated.

    Hey Hima!! Did you found any working solution for the same?

    Even my Internet Explorer 11 is not able to connect. It ends up with an error saying:

    "This page can't be displayed"

    Tried any web page, even Google home page but the same error. Help please.

    Hope you haven’t made any changes in the proxy settings of Internet Option. I have seen many people doing this due to some reason with earlier IE versions as well, this may work as well but many times it gives problem.

    So what you need to do is launch IE, open Internet Options from Tools Menu. Go to Connections Tab and open Lan Settings. Here you will find a check box saying something like “Use proxy server for your LAN”. Simply uncheck this box and Apply > Ok.

    Now restart the browser and see if Internet is working.

    I have been through this problem last month, it was IE 11 Preview itself. Even I thought it could be the Proxy problem but it wasn’t. There was no proxy setting, infact the check box was unmarked but the problem persists. Finally I tried resetting the Internet Explorer which finally helped me to get rid of the problem. Here is how you can do the same.
    • Press Win+R key from any screen on your computer to bring up the RUN Command.
    • Here type inetcpl.cpl and press Enter.
    • In the opened dialogue box go to Advanced Tab and click Reset.
    • Wait for few seconds and then click OK.


    See if it fixes the problem.

    If none of the above methods work then simply try out deleting entire History by going to Tools > Internet options > Browsing history > Delete. If that too doesn’t works than probably it will be due to any of your add-ons. You will need to disable all add-ons. You can disable it from Tools menu, tap or click Manage add-ons and disable. It should work now.
