    Hello All,

    I'm having a serious problem on one of my machines (running 2000). I am able to connect to AIM and able to FTP, however I can't receive any mail nor browse the web. I installed netscape to see if that worked but it didn't. I reinstalled the latest service pack and that didnt work. I then thought I might have had a DNS problem, so I changed the DNS entries to known working verizon entries, that didn't work either. I ran virus scan as well as spybot and no problems were found. I'm at a loss here as what to do here... any ideas? :mad:

    Thanks!,
    Mike

    Any ideas, does this help?
