Hi All,

I just booted up a brand new PC this morning with Windows 10 installed. I can connect to the internet via WIFI but when using any of my 2 browsers (Edge & Firefox) neither of them will load any pages. Edge did initially after a few mins of loading but now won't at all.

When I troubleshoot (right clicking the Wifi icon) I get this error message: "The device or resource (wpad.net) is not set up to accept connections on port "The World Wide Web (HTTP)"

I tried changing DNS settings (didn't work) So I found this solution posted by Microsoft:

a. Open Internet Explorer 10 desktop version.
b. Click on Tools and select Internet Options.
c. Click on the Connections tab and click on LAN Settings button.
d. Uncheck the option: Automatically detect settings, then click on OK to exit the window.
e. Click on OK again to save the settings and exit the Internet Options window.
f. Restart the computer and check if the issue is resolved.

I couldn't find these options in Microsoft Edge so I opened Internet Options in Windows 10 and did it there... but no joy. I've also disabled proxies in Firefox which had no effect.

I'm on a UPC Horizon Box, WIFI connection, 300mps with a strong connection (full bars). I'm typing this on my other laptop which has no connections issues at all.

Any ideas on how I can resolve this?? It's driving me nuts!!
