Ok...I have a problem with our notebook's internet connectivity. Currently, we have a desktop computer using a DSL dialup connection, which works fine on that machine. This modem is connected to a LinkSys wireless router. Now, with the notebook, the wireless connection automatically connects just fine, and then you have to connect to the DSL dialup. This worked just fine for months. Suddenly, about two weeks ago, the web browser was unable to connect, saying it can not connect to the webpage. This is true for both IE and Firefox. The wireless still says it is connected fine and the dialup also connects fine, with data transfer. The windows firewall is turned off. We have also restarted the wireless router with no resolution. Is this a problem with a setting on the notebook? Thanks!

TCP/IP stack repair options for use with Windows XP with SP2.

Start, Run, CMD, OK to open a command prompt.

Reset WINSOCK entries to installation defaults: netsh winsock reset catalog

Reset TCP/IP stack to installation defaults. netsh int ip reset reset.log

Reboot the machine.

Since DSL and dial-up are two different technologies, are you sure you know what you've got there?
