Hi
Can anyone help
My son's pc in the loft is networked to my pc in the bedroom.
There has been no problem until now, he has just turned his on and he can get the blueyonder web page but if he tries to sign into messenger or access a web page he gets the message "No connection to the internet is currently available to view internet that has been save on your computer click work offline" if he clicks work offline he get the message "This page is not available offline" If he clicks connect it it reverts back to the No internet connection ect" has anyone any ideas my pc is working fine I have checked his cable and re-booted the modem. I have a feeling his friend has altered something but dont know what.
Any help greatly appreciated.

Using Internet Connection Sharing right? Run the ICS Wizard on the PC in the loft again - click here . It should put some files on a disk you can put in the other machine to set it up.

I did a system restore to an eailer point and everything is fine now, I am sure his friend pressed something but god knows what.
Thanks Splork
