Internet dialup - no download

I have a laptop which normally accesses the Internet via a LAN and Proxy Server - no problems.
However, if I disconnect it from the LAN and try to use a modem dialup connection I have problems:-
It connects to my ISP and verifies the password OK but no pages are downloaded. Looking at the dialup monitor shows no data transfer after an initial burst.
If I enter a new URL it tries to connect to a new IP address so it appears to be connecting to the ISP's DNS Server OK.
This PC is Win2000 SP3 and IE5.0 but I've had the same problem with Win98 PC's also.
Suggestions gratefully received!
Thanks

Have you blocked off (disabled) "downloads" in your Internet options / Security settings?
