Email Working but cant browse the net

  ajm 01:23 20 Jan 2005

I have a PC with windows xp connected through a ADSL Router. Downloading emails from Outlooks is fine, but as soon as i click on IE, and want to access web sites, nothing happens. Any suggestions what to do?

has your router got its own firewall, have you set it to allow your Browser to access the internet?

Just a guess to give you something to try until others come along. :o)

thanks for the reply. The setup consists of 4 pcs and 2 laptops connected via a mixture of lan/wireless. This problem only happens on 1 PC thats on wired network and 1 laptop on wireless.

All 6 machines were working fine until yesterday. So i dont think its the firewall on the router.

Not too well up in networks ajm, but plenty of forum members are and I'm sure you'll have some help later on today. Sorry I can't help myself. :o(

"all machines were working fine until yesterday"

did you change anything?(just something else to "work on" until the cavalry arrives)

we had a vaguely similar problem at work the other day( I could not log in to the networked computer nor the internet: turned out that a coonection had become loose on one PC , and a somewhat vital connection:); has any connection become loose and have you physically checked each of them?

just an idea::)
