About the Error
This error message is displayed when there is an internet connection error. The cause is often simply a loose or incorrect connection to the modem. The solution is simple if it is a matter of just getting the wires connected properly but if it is a software problem, then a fix will have to be downloaded which can be a problem since the computer is unable to connect to the internet. One answer to this is to use another computer to download the fix, save it to a USB drive and then load it on to the problem unit.
