Hello to all from a newbie to this forum.
I have read many of the posts here and could not find a solution for this frustrating problem:
I can no longer connect to the internet from my desktop running win2k. I can send and receive email and access FTP servers, but can’t get anywhere from inside a browser. I have tried IE6, FF, Opera, NS, Mozilla. It does not matter whether I type domain name or ip address.
I have a small network with a winxp machine and it can connect to internet with no problem.
Here are the network details:
1 win2k pc
1 winxp pc
1 mac G4
smc barricade four port router
sprint adsl broadband modem
On the win2k machine I have tried the following:
uninstalled nic and installed known good one
replaced cat5 cable with known good one
Connection is configured to obtain DNS automatically.
Here is my ipconfig result:
Host Name: my computer
primary DNS suffix:
