    Started having this trouble this morning. Unsure of what happened but when I try to open up a browser (in Windows XP), I get an initial message that the browser is in offline mode and removing offline mode brings about a can't connect message. Now on the same computer that's dual booted with Ubuntu Linux, I have no problems. Neither does the other two PCs wirelessly connected (the one in question is wired) nor the wired Xbox 360 so it's obviously something in the Windows XP settings but I'm unsure what. Please help!
