W2K user group a/c cannot ping / access internet

  BBez 18:59 26 Feb 2008

hi all, i've got one of the pc's running win 2000 pro which can access internet no problem when logged on with any account in the "administrators group".

I've restricted one of the accounts to "users group" and it cannot get a webpage or ping the router that i share the internet through.

If i add the account to "power users group" then it can access internet / ping router.

I've checked the group policies and they are all at default but i may have missed something.

I can do with the internet working with accounts in the users group as my daughter keeps going into the user/passwords and changing her password for her user account when she has admin account.

Any help, thanks in advance
