trying to use broadband internet over network

  gillersuk 11:46 22 Nov 2004

ive connected to a home network so that i can use internet, but although i can use the network (i.e. i can see the other computers and copy stuff from them) i can't get their internet to work on my laptop. their using tesco broadband whihc works fine on theirs. i set it up as i thought was right but when i start internet explorer i get a "can't load page, press refresh" page. If i try to navigate to a different page (tried many) a pop up boc comes up saying "internet explorer can not open search page."
We've tried it with other computers and its worked fine.

I'm using XP home and have service pack 2. I do connect to broadband at another place with different settings.

Whats going on?
