    hmmm, got a problem

    my desktop computer wont let me connect through to the internet using IE or yahoo or aim. But x fire connects.

    Whats wrong with it?!

    my laptop connects to the net just fine using the same router/modem.


    before u ask:
    running windows xp
    yes i tried restarting
    ive run every virus/spyware scanner i have (spybot, adaware, avg, nod32)

    go to run
    type "command"
    then type "ipconfig/release"
    then tyoe "inconfig/renew"
    sans the " " of course

    sometimes IE and pals will just get confused and that smacks em upside the head

    if that does not work try doing a tracert for example:

    open DOS prompt:

    type tracert www.speedguide.net

    see how far it gets and where it stops..it actually sounds like a possible DNS issue, or a firewall block somehow if the IP command above does not work

    Start>Run>CMD

    netsh winsock rebuild

    Let it run then reboot, and you should be good to go again.
    Respect it.
