only one user can connect via bb

  TBH1 19:03 14 Apr 2004

I have 4 users set up on this PC running xp - have just noticed that only my account can access internet / collect mail. I'm on broadband and if I connect via my account, then switch to the others, they will not connect. Probably something 'fundamental' - - any help gratefully appreciated.

first who is your internet provider

i think you will find that if you go to the administrator account you have the option of all users share this connection.

johnnyrocker - - I know it shouldn't be, and I will change things when I get a minute, but all users are administrator accounts

but you can still set the connection share or am i misreading you?
