    Hello
    Weird problem that I can't solve.
    My laptop will not connect to my own website or connect to the mail server. I have a couple of sites hosted on the same web space with the same IP but non will connect.
    I have a desktop PC and another laptop on the network and they connect fine which rules out an IP blocks in the Linksys router and beyond.
    If I go through a proxy then I can connect.
    I tried switching from wireless to hardwire with no change
    I have turned off the firewalls and antivirus
    I have scanned with Security Essentials and Malwarebytes-OK
    I have checked host file.
    I have tried Firefox and IE but the email doesn't work so not a browser problem.
    I CAN connect to the website backend Cpanel.

    I have XP Sp3 OS

    DNS checks out OK

    Anyone got any ideas ?
    It has to be some setting in the laptop as everything else works OK

    Thanks

    OK
    So I got a lead from another thread in here and went to the TCP/IP protocol settings and clicked

    "Obtain DNS server address automatically " button in the TCP/IP protocol settings.

    and it solved the problem
