    I moved about a week ago,disconnected my PC and set it aside until I finished moving.
    Got everything set back up, using SBC DSL, same as before.
    My connection info show everything is working fine, but I don't get a web page, no home page..nothing.. modem shows all lights working. I set up my laptop to the same modem, same RJ45, it works just great.
    Running Windows XP Home on both systems.
    The desk top was working just fine until this recent move.
    SBC tech support was of no help to me. They say its a problem with my PC.
    I tried a new NIC card, didn't do any good.
    Has this happened to anyone else out there???:confused:

    I'll assume you had everything unplugged during the move including the modem. Can you ping to the outside world to see if this is a connection problem or a browser / software problem?

    Does that mean you aren't using the router now?

    ipconfig /flushdns

    This is really strange, I hooked my wireless router backup so as to use my laptop downstairs. Checking my wifes email for her, decided to try the desktop once more while I had her home page up, clicked Internet on the desktop and her page opened their. Closed it and tried mine again, wouldn't work. I opened mine on the laptop then tried the desktop again & it came up.
    Is this strange or what???????
