    cannot connect laptop to internet (6)

    I connected a laptop to LAN, when i open the browser (IE) a message comes up saying: " Forbidden, You were denied access because:
    Access denied by access control list.

    the latop has a AOL dial up connection. i have cancelled the dial up connection as a default connection, still doe not work.
    Does anyone have any idea how to fix this problem

    Regards,
    Skender

    I have no idea if it will fix the problem, I'm afraid. If you don't intend to use the dial-up cnnection, it shouldn't do any harm to delete it.

    Did you try recreating the (LAN) connection as suggested in the KB article?

    i did not delete the dial up connection i fixed the problem, by going to Tool-Internet Connections-Connections-Lan settings and unticked Proxy server.
