Hi,
My mums been having problems with her internet, no matter which browser she uses they will only load google homepage and nothing else. I did a quick google search and followed the solution belwo:

'click start.. in the search window type cmd and then hit ctrl shift enter that will bring up a black box on the screen type netsh interface ipv4 set subinterface "wireless network connection" mtu=1492 store= persistent and hit enter you should get a ok and after that type exit and hit enter thats it your wireless should work again works like a charm'

This worked fine but the next day she was back to having the same problems again. Can anyone help, she's operating windows vista, but I believe my brother is having the same problem on windows 7

If it is the home page that is wrong you need to set it on each browser to the home page you want. First set up the page(s) you want as Home pages then...

In IE it's Tools (Gear icon) -> Internet options ->General tab -> Select Use Current pages.
In Firefox or Pale Moon -> Firefox Button -> Options -> Options -> Select Use Current pages.
In Google Chrome -> Tools (Wrench icon) -> Settings -> On Startup -> Open a specific page or set of pages -> Set Pages -> Use current pages.
Other browsers just ask
