OK, starters, know I probably caused this but have spent 3 days trying to solve it!!
Pentium II, windows 98 (1st ed). Connecting to internet with a Tipa P PCI ISDN Terminal adapter, using microsoft dial up adapter, single channel.
With two separate ISPs the connection is dialling, verifying password and logging on to network.
When connected I can ping websites so obviously a connection is made.
When I launch IE Explorer or opera I get page cannot be found messages. Outlook express gives a cannot find server message. I cannot access the web at all.
I have: Uninstalled and reinstalled the Terminal adapter. Uninstalled and reinstalled Dial up networking, dialup adaptors and IE5 and outlook express. I have upgraded and susequently downgraded to/from IE and outlook express 6.I have also reinstalled windows though with this being one of those PCs that came without disks this won't be a 'clean install'
Probable cause(?????????????????) I have been trying to connect 2 computers with a LAN and got well out of my depth, could I have caused this problem??
Many thanks for any help, links, suggestions in advance and I promise never to intefere in what I don't understand again, sincerely, Barney S.
Wish I'd known about this site before as I had a similar problem and, like you, spent many days trying to sort it and almost ended up bald!! Glad you are having fun now but how did you find the site? I finally found a friendly computer expert who sorted my problem out. Cottager
