hi people,
Im having a rather annoying problem. the only internet connectivity i can get is through internet explorer and firefox. this may sound normal but the annoying thing is i cant connect through Windows media player my p2p and my FTP!

i have a hunch its something to do with a firewall but i have deleted them all and deactivated windows firewall and still have the same problem!


Please help

Really does sound like your firewall. Have a look at the permissions and make sure it's allowing the apps you're having probs with.

I've just had a thought, which is dangerous for me. Check your HOSTS file to make sure its not blocking something.

In Windows XP its located in

C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\DRIVERS\ETC

When you find it it will be HOSTS without any extension, try renaming it to HOSTS.OLD and see if that makes a difference, if it doesn't just rename it back to HOSTS again.

If you are accessing the internet via adsl router change the MTU size
