I have a tata photon plus dongle,but even after I connect my dongle to my laptop I get no internet. The IE displays "internet explorer cannot display the page" and Chrome displays "Unable to connect to proxy server".

I have checked my proxy setting and no proxy is being used and Automatically detect setting is the only thing selected. I am able to do a successful ping to google when connected with my dongle.

I tried uninstalling tata photon plus software and installing back but no use. I tried to connect the dongle using different port but no use.

I am able access internet in my system from other source like WIFI and company LAN, but when I connect my dongle no net comes.

In order to make sure my dongle works fine, I connected it to my friend lappy and he was able to access internet without issue.

I have problem in accessing net only when I connect my dongle to my laptop.

So you're able to successfully ping google but the google homepage fails to open in the browser? –  Karan Apr 17 '13 at 12:51

1 Answer 1

Have you gone through the network setup? It may be that you need to setup your network. Since you said IE, I assume that this is a windows system. In the control panel there should be a 'Network and Internet'. Try going through that with the dongle connected.
