hey ppl i run 2 puters on a sweet wireless network. the desktop while surfing seems ok however will not load the odd pages. cant get onto online banking nor will it connect to windows updates. the laptop on the same network accesses these sites when i switch back to ordinary broadband modem desktop accesses the sites no problem. both puters run xp and both are fully updated. any ideas?
It might be worth running some network diagnostics on the desktop, i'm not sure of any great ones but if you can ping something (e.g. router/another pc) from the desktop, you could try running ping with -t at the end just to get a repeated ping.
ping somemachine -t
If you see some timeouts etc. then at least it means it is general networking issue rather than IE / Web page specific.
