    I am having the most frustrating problem I've ever had. We installed a t1 line to my computer at work. I can ping an IP address and I can ping yahoo.com, but I cannot browse with IE or Netscape or AOL. When connected to another computer in the office, the other computer browses fine. Of 8 computers in the office, only 2 browse fine. The other 6 will ping but not browse.

    I have checked the internet connection settings a million times. Reinstalled the drivers for the 10/100 LAN cards, replaced winsock32.dll, (running win 98 on some 98se on others-no correlation to the problem).

    does anyone have any ideas or things to try? I am currently trying to run through a netgear router, but the same exact problem occurs when connecting the T1 directly to my LAN and the other computers that work do so through the netgear, so I am convinced that it is not the source. Here are my settings:

    Are you saying there are 5 NIC's in each comp, or are those diff computers?


    If they're diff computers, do this... (manually configed)

    actually, that was just one computer and I have deleted the stuff that is not associated with the ethernet card. I was just posting that to show that the router has assigned my computer an IP address and that the router is working as the default gateway and that the DNS servers are there and working.

    Any thoughts?
