    Okay, I'll be honest, I'm a real newbie at this kind of stuff, and I accidentally downloaded an installed a 64-bit Windows 7 beta rather than a 32-bit one (opposite of what I should have done), so naturally this problem may be because of that...

    But I have been trying to download the Windows Live Suite or whatever (wlsetup-web.exe), but it never works. The installer opens, but stops and says "There is no internet connection detected" or something to that effect.

    I was pretty curious why this is happening since Mozilla FireFox works perfectly fine. I load everything on it just dandily.

    But since it's Microsoft, I wanted to be safe and try Internet Explorer out. I open IE8, and none of the pages are loading.. I open IE8 64-bit, and everything works fine again.

    The reason Windows Live isn't installing is probably because of that.. But I don't know how to fix it. Is there any way I can change the installer to directing its attention to the internet connection for FireFox or IE8 64-bit? It doesn't work with IE8 32-bit, it seems, because IE8 32-bit is acting really screwey.

    Any help is greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance :)

    Since it's impossible to install a 64bit Windows on a 32bit system, you must have a 64bit processor. So why should you limit yourself with a 32bit Windows?

    Anyway, do you use an Anti Virus software? I experienced the same problem that you described when I had KAV 2009 installed. It seemed to interfere with traffic on some ports. I then switched to Kaspersky AV 8 for workstations (which they recommend for Windows 7) and after that my network and internet connections worked flawlessly.

    I have Avast anti-virus installed on 64bit version and all of the Windows live programs worked perfect.

    I do have AVG Anti-Virus, but I don't think that's what is causing this....

    If it IS causing this, would uninstalling it help?

    It worked fine for me, 32 and 64 bit. Perhaps you have to sign in to the program?? I do have an ident, which probably helps. See here :
