    Hi ryan023,

    On the computer with the web browser problem, have you checked to see whether your firewall (maybe you have a hardware firewall in the router) allows the web browser to pass traffic through it.

    Also, do you have a software firewall 3rd party application? If so, you need to allow the web browser to pass traffic through the firewall.

    Are you accessing the Internet as admin or regular user? Safer to do it as regular user.
