    Somebody Help please!!

    Basically I am getting this problem over and over since reinstalling XP SP2. IE displays Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage no matter what page I try to access. If I hit Enter in the URL field (while it is still there) the pages loads fine. I have tried to install Firefox to see if I would get the same issue but it just seems that sites either do not connect at all with Firefox of everything is at a crawl.

    Can somebody please help me with this.

    Thanks

    Tell us about your connection please. Are you dial-up, Cable, DSL? Do you connect through a router? Wireless or hardwired?

    Are you saying you did a complete re-install of XP or just a repair install?

    Was it working prior to the re-install? Why did you Re-install?

    I am on a DSL connection. D-Link DL-524 router and the PC is hardwired in. I did a complete re-install of XP because I was getting an RPC server unavailable. All DHCP services were gone and I could not get an IP. All the websites I visited seem to imply that the best solution was to re-install.

    I tried to repair but the install kept hanging at 34% of devices installed. Therefore I decided to format and start over.
