    I am trying to help a co-worker get his Wifi working.

    The wireless manager says he has a connection but when starting up firefox it is unable to pick up a web site. He just informed me he is unable to get connected via his LAN line at home.

    He's assuming something he did with firewall settings a few days ago caused this. Where should l look first to try to solve this?
