    Hey Everyone.
    I'm running a computer on Windows XP Home and trying to go online via a computer network in my dorm room. It can connect to the network using both ethernet and wireless connections, but no web sites will load over either connection.

    This same computer had no problem connecting wired or wireless at my home (running off a router and Comcast Internet) and loading web sites. I can ping IPs in the local network but nothing on the web. I have tried resetting the TCP/IP stack and disabling windows firewall and my McAfee virus scanner.

    Does anyone have any tips on why I cannot access any web sites? IE will say "web site found. Waiting for reply." and never go beyond that point. The connection in the room is fine and works off another machine, and the network is recognized. Can anyone help? Thanks.

    ipconfig /all

    Does any other machine in the dorm have access to the internet? If not, then Port 80 is being blocked.
