hi i have a very strange network prob when i install sp2(xp pro). Internet explorer does not work at all. It opens ok but i get a page cannot be displayed error message. I am using NTL cable broadband, the strangest aspect of this is that i have an ip address but i cannot ping anythin including my own gateway, i cant trace a route to anything BUT i am wrinting this online right now using mozilla firefox whiich is fine and can connect to all sites that are required. Windows firewall is off and i dont have a third party friewall installed. This is definately an sp2 issue because its the third time i have installed and unistalled sp2 and the problem dissapears when i uninstall it. I've had a search about but no one else seems to have had this problem.
can anyone help???

have you tried rerunning sp2 over the existing setup. If you have the sp2 cd you can do this it is like a repair thingy.
