"Page not found" message on all sites tried

  liblob 07:41 03 Jul 2004

My brother has my old computer (slow but working). He decided to get onto internet and signed up with an ISP (OneTel) which I used (and still do). All settings have been checked with OneTel help line. I've checked them, the modem is reported as working properly and when he tries to connect the modem dials and the computer reports him as connected. However OneTel home page is reported as "Page not found" and every other page I have tried returns the same message (Google and others). My "favourites" are still on the machine so addresses should be the right ones. Any ideas on what is wrong and the solution would be appreciated. Thanks

Assuuming it was working on Internet before he got it, it might be something simple.

Have you checked that IE isn't set to work offline? File/Work offline.

Also - is there a firewall? (There should be)
Make sure that IE is allowed in the firewall.

Zone Alarm 5 causes these kind of problems on some PCs including mine. Had to revert to the previous version.
