Why can’t I use the web browser in the Android SDK?

Hi,

I am unable to use any app which requires data access, not even the web browser on Android SDK (the latest version as of January 2013). I have Android Jelly Bean 4.1, 2.1 and 2.3.3 installed and have tried searching Google and Q&A forums. Please help. I use Windows XP 32-bit SP2 and my internet connection is a wired landline (telephone-very common in India) cable broadband (sadly, just 1Mbps).

Thanks.

    if you are on wireless, Disable your LAN card. go to your Network connections, find your LAN card, right click it and choose disable

    perhaps it is your antivirus/firewall give full access to emulator.exe.
