My pc is connected to orange broadband. Through a BT router. I have XP
For some reason internet explorer and firefox wont open hotmail / msn / download.com / click here etc My brothers pc is connected to the same router - with vista, yet there is problems with that pc - it can upload the sites/msn no probs.
I've formatted my pc - the problem still persisted
however the pc DID load up hotmail in a pc repair shop so seemed ok there... i was thinkin it must be the router, but my brothers pc doesnt have the same problem... surely a reformatting would have fixed the problem...it hasnt though i turned windows firewall off and it made no difference
Does anyone have any idea what the problem can be??? It's so annoying. i changed the ethernet too and it made no difference.
Have you tried connecting one at a time?If your brother's is working from number one outlet,put yours in the same one. If his works in it and yours does not it pretty much clears the router from having a fault and points to your PC or settings being faulty.
