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.

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?

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?


Any experiment in life will be at your own experience.
