Unable to launch browser via gateway

  mnasir 07:14 04 Sep 2006

I have a Speedtouch 330 ADSL modem connected to a pc running Windowsxp SP2. Everything is fine here and I can access and use all browsers. I also have another pc (with XP SP2) connected to the first pc via a switch. Previously, things worked fine and I was able to connect to the internet. Then I reinstalled windows XP on the second pc and things are not returning to normal with internet. What puzzles me is that I can download songs using Limewire from this pc but unable to launch any browser. I can ping the gateway (my first pc, but not to the outside world.

You may have to set up a new shared network connection on the PC's.

do this from network connections found in control panel. Use the Wizard. You will then have to bridge the connections by selecting both the new connection and your main one and right click the new one then select 'bridge'

Post back if this does not work
