can anyone help?
my desktop is conneceted to the internet but i cant load websites
browser just states cant find server etc,
windows xp, firefox and explorer used.
cant email either
but I do have a connection, my laptop is fine and connects to the dlink router wirelessly no problem.
I have disabled firewall and av, I have switched off router and back on again several times, i have tried the ping code to make sure the connection is there, all seems fine.
the connnection is there but something it appears is blocking it. I have run a full virus scan - which is fine and my isp has said the connection is fine therefore the prob is with my pc
all help gratefully received

If it has previously worked OK can you do a System Restore to an earlier date when it was working? You will lose any programmes you may have installed since the Restore Date but you won't lose data
