    I've recently had problems connecting to the web using IE 6.0.2... Its like it can't find the IP address and IE just locks up. After I reboot a half dozen times or unplug/replug my router/cable modem things go back to normal. Once it's up it runs fine all day.

    The rest of the laptop runs fine and it seems like I am able to otherwise connect to the Internet (Google Earth, Itunes etc)...just IE locks up and nothing works after that. Today was the worst and the only thing that worked was to start the laptop unplugged and then replug after startup.

    This just started one day; no new programs added or anything.

    I have a 2005 IBM Thinkpad with XP

    Any help appreciated!
