Proxy Settings When Using a Router on Windows Vista

I had this document "saved as a draft" because I haven't had a chance to add the links below to Windows Vista Bookmarks. This is being published in hopes of having an answer for Bits from Bill: Great New Dell Vista Laptop but No Internet

Proxy settings in the browser need to be disabled when using a router as the gateway for the Internet connection. Although I did not find instructions for disabling proxy settings in Opera, below are instructions for Firefox and IE.

The proxy setting on my vista IE is never checked. Yet, the new Dell XPS M1710 is still just a machine that sometimes has internet connection, and sometimes does not. And to make it more interesting, it happens more after a sleep or hybernation, but also happens just randomely when the machine is on.
