No internet connection error - when there is internet?

I have been trying to upload pictures to my dropbox and for what ever reason it is saying that I am not connected to the internet. I have found some info on forums saying that I need to change the proxies, but the steps listed don't make sense as there is no "gear" to click and go in and change the proxy settings. I am using dropbox through Chrome on my windows OS. Please let me know how I can change these settings while on my setup.

If you are using Chrome then you shouldnt get that error as you are just going to the web page and uploading via that. What do you get when you go to Chrome and ?

The 'gear' icon is on the desktop software which sits next to the clock on the status bar (bottom right on Windows, top right on Mac). THAT is what gives the error and THAT is what I think you are actually using.

Hi Mark, I too experiencing the same error as britforbes, the jpeg upload failed on both Chrome and IE. I have tried updated Chrome and Java. Clear the cache and cookies for Chrome and IE, cleared Java cache but I am having failed upload. I have even tried uploading different file types and file name, tried it on a different computer but still no luck. Both machines are Windows 7 (64bit). And I can access dropbox just fine.
