Re you connecting wirelessly or with an Ethernet cable?

Make sure that "Work Offline" hasn't been ticked by mistake on the problem PC. IE > File > Work Offline.

I should look at what I've typed before pressing the 'Post' button. It should read...

Tell me- does all Pc's connect wirelessly, any cables used ??

Have you specified the correct IP's, Default gateway, DNS addresses and Subnet's.

Goto Control Panel, Network and Connections, view all connections, Wireless adapter(properties),
Internet Protocol properties,,,

Here you will see:
IP-Adress: ***.***.***.***
Subnet:
Check if all PC's

Check IP

Sorry, posted by itself

OK
Here you will see:
IP-Adress: ***.***.***.***
Subnet: ***.***.***.***
Default: ***.***.***.***

Check if all PC's has the same subnet- if it has three sections of 255 and the rest zeros, make sure that all IP's first 3 sections is the same for all PC's- in the fourth you will specify the node number-(individuallity of each pc)-could be anything

The Default gateway should be the PC or device with direct internet connection. Could also be the router IP.
All PC's must have same gateway.

Then finally check DNS locations just below those three entries:

these are two global adresses -
168.210.2.2
194.14.239.2

Let me know if this helps
cheers

Hi Atlantic Man
Yep all computers connect wirelessly to Belkin router. Now, I have noticed that I can connect to the internet with fire fox but not with IE, keeps coming up with Cannot display page.
Regards and thanks for help
