cannot access internet windows xp RRS feed

  • Question

  • My friend gave me a Toshiba notebook nb206  with Windows xp on it.  She didn't remove any of her setting, but I was able to access my wireless network here at home.  When I use Internet explorer I get the message that I am not connected even though the computer tells me I have a good connection.  I"m 73 yrs old and somewhat familiar with computers.  I disabled, I think, the firewall and the virus protection, but don't know where to procede from here to make this computer usable for me.  I'm sure there is a setting somewhere I have to change, but haven't the slightest idea where to start.  Any help would be appreciated.
