Cannot load pages from
specific Web Sites
Q: I have created the
following home network in my new house (in the UK).
DSL internet from Virgin LingSys Router WAG54GS
Ethernet connection to Win 2000 Pro Laptop (and then thru VPN)
Ethernet connection to XP Desktop
Wireless connection to another XP Desktop
PROBLEM: the two XP machines cannot load pages from specific Web Sites, for
example microsoft.com! Other websites load fine, although eventually some
link to another page won't connect.
The W2K Laptop connects fine to all sites, hence my
ability to post in this forum.
I have tried removing all firewalls and have scanned both for spyware, but
no luck. Both XP machines worked fine in the USA thru another LinkSys
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated as the LinkSys, Dell and Virgin
support sites have all given up!
