    Hello,
    I have a small network with 2 PC's and a laptop. The problem is the laptop is unable to access the internet. Both PC work fine. The Laptop can access the lan but not the net. I have an IP address(The only protocol), I can ping IP addresses and names (yahoo.com) and I get replys every time, but it wont access a web page. the laptop is Windows 2K so I tried nslookup and it was successful to bind names to IP's, so I know its not a DNS error. I even tried a proxy server and still no access. The laptop is maybe one month old. I never seen anything like this before. I also thought it could be an IE problem so I installed netscape and that did not work. The next thing im gonna trie is repair IE, but I dont think it will work. Any other things I can try?
    Thanks

    Try and enter the IP address for the web site. If you can't get there that way I would check your NIC settings for TCP/IP and maek sure it is set up correctly. I would also check your connection settings in IE to make sure it's set to LAN and that there are no proxy settings in there.

    Is it possible to set up a sniffer, like Snort, to see if port 80, or http traffic if using a proxy, is flowing from and to that machine? It might be that a firewall, possibly yours, is blocking that traffic for security reasons?

    Hello,
    Im using DHCP. What should I look for in the NIC settings?

    Port 80 works because the other PC is using it to get out to the internet and I have not blocked it. Could it be security settings in IE?

    In windows dose the Internet settings in controle panel control all internet settings regareless of what software you are using?

    Did anyone get a solution to this? I seem to have a similar problem, W2k host and ME client. Both can see each other's files and printers. Host has 100% OK access to the net (WWW,FTP, etc.). Client can ping, FTP, but cannot access WWW - with one exception I can get to an https site.

    I have ZoneAlarm running on the host, but problem remains even when it's disabled.

    My guess is that it's a port 80 problem, but I have no idea how to check that - or even if it's (another) red herring.

    Any clues?
