I am using my Laptop under mu company's LAN.(server is Win NT Small Business Server). I am connecting properly to the internet. When I tried to connect using my Modem even if the MODEMS commonicate perfectly Internet Explorer cant see internet. I tried ping from DOS and works perfect. I have Win XP professional. All the protocol seem to be simmilar with win98.
Have you any idea why cant see internet?

dinsto, when setting up your Internet account did you enter an IP address for a "proxy server"?

It's not always needed but it wouldn't do any harm in inserting the IP address. You will need to find this from your Administrator.
