    Windows 10 - Browser/Email won't connect in Mexico


    I am on vacation in Mexico, Outlook and Edge/Firefox timeout (Laptop) when I try to search/update. HOWEVER my Kaspersky virus dB update can access the Internet with no issues when I run it. I had no problems at home, the only difference is I am trying to connect at the hotel in Mexico. I have tried connecting with both wireless and lan, changed both to trusted networks and rebooted. Same problem, can't connect. The network is fine, I am using my tablet connected to the network to send this question. Is this some location/security setting in Windows 10? Thanks for any assistance!

    :)

  2. Time line for upgrade to Windows 10

    My wife and I, along with our 2 computers have been in Mexico since late October. We didn't time our winter escape with much regard for the roll out of Windows 10.

    One of the computers (Lenovo-hers) was running windows 8 and I swear it downloaded and activated Windows 10 all by itself...after a steeply sloped learning curve (littered with expressions of "sh"uck"s") I have made my peace with this new system, even come
    to enjoy it (occasionally).

    The other computer (Toshiba-mine) was, and still is, running Windows 7. The internet service in Mexico has become (even) more unreliable in the past month as the current provider (Telecable) is converting to IZZI. I am, under these circumstances, reluctant
    to initiate the Windows 10 download.

    So here's the question. I'll be back home (Canada) by May 1st and connected to a MUCH more reliable internet connection. Will the download of Windows 10 still be free at that time or should I try to making the download here in Mexico?

    Thanks

  3. Not connecting to the internet windows 10 anniversery addition

    Hello

    My windows 10 anniversary addition is not connecting to the internet when first powered up.

    catorna says it's not talking to the internet. The edge browser won't connect, the email app won't refresh and auto updates won't work. But the notifications panel shows connected to the internet and internet explorer 11 works with no problems.

    The above starts to operate if the computer is restarted and is ok until the computer is pawed down.

    Then its power up, login and restart and login again to get it all working.

    Eny thoughts please?

    I don't know enough yet about windows 10 but it could be. It could also be something with the hotel in mexico's wifi or what ever internet they use. *Smile

    Thanks Atomic77. This is a strange one. My Windows 10 laptop is the only device that can't access the Internet. Android tablet and cell phone have no issues. Also Kaspersky can access the internet and update the DB when I run it(on Laptop)?

    I was staying at my brothers place in Mexico. He had no issues with his laptop running Ubuntu, nor did my wife using her android phone nor his wife using her iPad. I am running Windows 10 and had very spotty results. Most of the time I could not connect to my usual websites, nor could Outlook send or receive e-mail. I ran tracert to see what was going on and usually got only 3 or 4 hops, all in Mexico before things started timing out. Once in a while I would get a message saying
    than the net could not be found. Back home in Canada now and no problems going to the same few websites. If there is a fix for this issue, I would love to get it.

    I would like to know the reason as well as solution.
    Most importantly, what should I prepare before going abroad with my laptop.

    I would ask if the network in question was an open wifi connection for hotel guests. If it was an encrypted network, I should think there wouldn't be an issue.
