  1. when i try to login they tell me to check my internet connection i have internet too i changed the proxy settings to system settings still not working

    1. Haven’t seen this before. If you don’t have a proxy I suggest to use the option ‘No Proxy’. If you do use a proxy use the ‘Custom settings’.
