    I have several Windows XP workstations that cannot browse the Internet via a LAN connection.

    We use DHCP server with MS Small Business Server 5.5. The IE 6 settings are configured to use the LAN for connection.

    The TCP/IP configs are set to accept an IP address automatically, as well as DNS addresses.

    Several other XP workstations seem to be able to browse just fine, but I don't see any difference in the TCP/IP configs or the IE 6 LAN setting.

    Any clues?:confused:

    See if you can access the web sites by IP address instead of URL. If you can get there that way they are not getting to a DNS server to resolve the name to an IP address.
