"I can't view Web pages"
This page applies to Windows 95/98 users only.

If you are experiencing problems viewing Web pages, there may be several causes. The information listed below should help you to determine the cause of the problem and find a solution.

Note: If you having trouble viewing Web pages while using Juno Turbo, click here.

A. Do you have proxy settings enabled?

To verify whether you have proxy settings enabled and to disable them, please follow these steps:

Netscape Users:

  1. Open Netscape.
  2. From the Edit menu, select Preferences.
  1. On the left side of the window, click the + next to Advanced.
  2. Under Advanced, click on Proxies.
  3. Select Direct Connection to the Internet and click OK.

Internet Explorer Users:

  1. Click on the Windows Start button, point to Settings and select Control Panel.
  2. Double-click the Internet or Internet Options icon.
  1. Select the Connections tab and click on the LAN Settings button.

    Note: For Internet Explorer 5.0 users only, click on the Settings button.
  1. Uncheck the Use a Proxy Server box and click OK.
  2. Click OK again to exit.

B. Does the trouble occur with ALL Web sites you attempt to view?

If you are experiencing trouble with only one or two Web sites you are attempting to visit, the problem is most likely related to technical difficulties on those specific Web sites. Try connecting later or contact the system administrator of the Web site you are trying to view.

If the problem occurs with ALL Web sites you are attempting to visit, there may be a temporary problem with the access number you are using. Try using an alternate access number, if one is available. For a list of available access numbers, click here.

WARNING: THE USE OF SOME TELEPHONE ACCESS NUMBERS MAY RESULT IN LONG DISTANCE CHARGES. IN SELECTING YOUR ACCESS NUMBER(S), PLEASE NOTE THAT ALTHOUGH AN ACCESS NUMBER MAY BE IN YOUR AREA CODE OR LOCATED IN YOUR GENERAL GEOGRAPHIC REGION, IT MAY NOT NECESSARILY BE A LOCAL NUMBER FOR YOU. YOU MAY INCUR SUBSTANTIAL TELEPHONE CHARGES IF YOU CHOOSE ACCESS NUMBERS THAT ARE NOT COVERED BY YOUR LOCAL CALLING PLAN. WE URGE YOU TO CHECK WITH YOUR TELEPHONE COMPANY TO FIND OUT WHICH NUMBERS ARE LOCAL FOR YOU BEFORE USING A NUMBER FROM THIS LIST.

Note: You are solely responsible for all telephone charges related to accessing our services. Juno will not reimburse you for any such charges, including long distance or toll charges.

C. Rename the Additional wsock32.dll Files

If you are still experiencing difficulties viewing Web sites, complete the steps below to rename any extra copies of the wsock32.dll file that may be located on your computer.

  1. Click on the Windows Start button, point to Find and select Files Or Folders.
  2. In the Named text box, type wsock32.dll and click Find Now.
  3. You will need to rename any copy of the wsock32.dll file that is not located in the C:\Windows\System folder. To rename a file:
