I'm having trouble getting a script to make an
internet connection with my windows xp laptop with a
wireless connection. It works fine on my desktop with
a dial-up connection;

page = urllib.urlopen(my_URL).read()

gives the message;
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "C:/Python24/test.py", line 475, in -toplevel-
    main()
  File "C:/Python24/test.py", line 393, in main
    entries = parse_category(cat)
  File "C:/Python24/test.py", line 366, in
parse_category
    page = urllib.urlopen(URL_CAT % cat).read()
  File "C:\Python24\lib\urllib.py", line 77, in
urlopen
    return opener.open(url)
  File "C:\Python24\lib\urllib.py", line 180, in open
    return getattr(self, name)(url)
  File "C:\Python24\lib\urllib.py", line 296, in
open_http
    h.endheaders()
  File "C:\Python24\lib\httplib.py", line 794, in
endheaders
    self._send_output()
  File "C:\Python24\lib\httplib.py", line 675, in
_send_output
    self.send(msg)
  File "C:\Python24\lib\httplib.py", line 642, in send
    self.connect()
  File "C:\Python24\lib\httplib.py", line 626, in
connect
    raise socket.error, msg
IOError: [Errno socket error] (10060, 'Operation timed
out')

I've tried turning off the firewall and tinkering with
windows networking properties to no avail.

I'm new to python, can someone please help me get a
clue :)
