Opera/IE Suddenly Not Available

  big kev 19:15 21 Nov 2003

I've just finished installing my new Bluetooth desktop, which required me turning off the NIS/NAV from starting up each time.

I re-instated this option, rebooted the pc,but now I am unable to use Opera or IE, Outlook and some other programs are still able to use the internet, as is my networked computer.

I keep getting, "could not connect to remote server" pop ups.

Opera and IE are "Permit All", so I'm at a loss, I presume there's something easy that I've missed.

Pardon my ignorance but what is "Bluetooth desktop".

Do they work if you turn off NIS?

Bluetooth desktop is a keyboard/mouse/media pad all connected via desktop, I got the Logitech diNovo.

I found out that the problem was actually down to the free sms site on Lycos, as soon as I tried to go there, Opera and IE wouldn't go online. That's definately the cause, I double checked it, this is one very, very odd problem?
