i'm using and old XP system computer,it's hooked up from my
w-10 computer with an ethernet cable and also with wi fi
It shows that I'm conected to the internet but only some things
will come in it seems the things that were downloaded years ago
on there mostly work. I can use internet eaplorer and go to Fox News.
But when I try to download something that's not already in the XP
It says I'm not on the internet.
