When I connect to the internet I cannot access anything. No pop email, no internet explorer etc. the only things that work are things that are directly accessing IP addresses, such as MSN messenger and some of the downloads that I have in getright. It is not a problem with the ISP as I can connect on my Mum's machine. I am running Windows 2000Pro with IE6. Would manually entering a DNS ip maybe fix it?

Check the networking properties of your connection.
Right click on your connection icon in Network and Dialup Connections and select Properties.
Select the networking Tab at the top.
Select Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) to hilight

Since you don't mention how the 2k machine is configured, too many variables.


If it uses a separate modem . .

However if you use a LAN, then . . .

Or if you are using ICS . . .
