My Acer 7720 seems to connect to the web but won't open e-mails from Yahoo or Gmail. Other programs open. The first button on the very top, under the on/off button, is red. This is suppose to be the interent connect button - how do I get it to connect correctly so it will be green, and e-mails will work? Thanks.
It looks like your computer is connecting to the router, but not to the internet.
