Among the many known errors with network connectivity, one of the best known is:

"The remote device or resource will not accept the connection."

Cause

The cause of the error is an incorrect configuration / settings of the system's network settings. Proxy gate may be enabled or other settings may be incorrectly configured.

Interestingly, although the proxy settings are set in the browser, they are not browser specific. The changes are saved in the system and are the same for all browsers. Therefore, resetting your browser will not help solve the problem.
