new pc cannot open may sites

just built 2 identical pcs for twin brothers. One of them is perfect but the other one cannot open many sites such as hotmail or even pc advisor. It must be a setting but I havn't found it yet. XP 64 3000 with XP pro and sp2. Even listed sites in trusted etc., Any suggestions would be welcomed.

I am using ics with a 3 com hub could this be a problem with the host pc?

Is it a broadband connection on the host machine?

If it is, then this article should help click here

I know you're using SP2 and the problem shouldn't exist, but try the manual configuration as described in the article.
