Recently went on to BroadBand,yesterday was unable to pick up e-mails, or do live updates with various programs, when I try to ping any address I get the error 65. Any suggestions please, can access web pages and view e-mails via click here ok but not via any email program I use.
Thanks for any suggestions.

This behavior can occur if the following conditions are true:
The Internet Connection Sharing (ICS) feature is enabled.

-and-
Firewall software from Zone Labs such as ZoneAlarm or ZoneAlarm Pro is installed on the computer.

-and-
The ZoneLabs program is not correctly configured for ICS.

Reducing the security level in ZoneAlarm may do the
trick.

Thanks for reply, zone alrms is not in use, am using Sygate pro firewall, but have switched it off and still same problem. My ISP says they are having problems with Broadband traffic, some have slow loading web pages at varying times, mine has had this but all ok now, only unable to ping. I am using XP Home Edition, have set my IE6 back to defaults and checked my modem properties can not find anything obvious

  Mr T 13:05 03 Nov 03

Yes I can, why and where is that ?

Thats your local host so all is well at your end. Whats under the startup tab in msconfig?

Have got about a dozen items there ,antivirus,speaker, mouse driver, all usual items, should there be something special there ?
