RE: the message

Computers aren't good at working out HOW they should connect to the internet. If you connect via a router (either using a network cable or a wireless connection) then make sure that 'Never dial a connection' is selected under the Connections tab in Internet Options (which you can access through Internet Explorer or Control Panel).

If that does not work, some more information about how your computer is supposed to connect to the internet might help us solve your problem.
