Hi All, I recently had to buy a new 4 port ADSL modem router as my old one suddenly died. After setting it up and configuring it, it worked on 3 of my comps straight off. 3pcs and a laptop are all connected to this modem via RJ45s, one of my pcs however keeps showing "page cannot be displayed, server not found" I have looked at the lan card on this comp, a p4 2000 and all settings look fine. Also nothing under device manager. Can anyone suggest anything? The lan card is reported as working properly. Thanks.

One thing springs to mind. does the non working pc belong to the same workgroup as the others?

Yes, it should as I have not done anything to it. They all worked with thw demised modem. BTW, OS on all systems is XP

Did you follow the same process for all the machine's?

Can you ping/connect to the router?

Is there a firewall on this machine?

check that the cable isnt damaged by switching them around. its easy to overlook the obvious.

also try connecting a different pc to the port that the PC that inst working properly uses to see if there is a problem in the router
