    I have a small home network set up. Server is a HP box running WinXP SP2. Networked computers are a mix of winxp and win98se.

    In the beginning, everything was working OK. We had wireless internet. The server was setup to accept dhcp from the wireless router, then the server ran dhcp to the networked computers in the house.

    Well, the ISP went into receivership, another larger company picked up the service. I talked to their support people, and they gave me a user name and password since they use pppoe.

    So, I set up the pppoe on the server, it connects no problem. I can surf from the server. So I set up the ICS service. I went to one of the networked computers. Tried ebay, no problem. Tried hotmail, no dice. Go to the server, try hotmail, it works! Very wierd.

    I try a tracert www.hotmail.com from a win98 machine. It seems to find the route OK. I am at the end of my networking experience, so I would appreciate any help from the community.
