Question What's Happening?


Hi all i'm from belgium and there is somethign really strange happening ,

i have PC's at home all working on Windows XP and they cant connect to the internet , my personal pc has linux and i can connect to the internet

My girlfriend uses win 98 and she lives like 10 kilometres from here and she ALSO cant connect to the internet...

And if i try to reach belgian websites i cant connect to them , not even my providers website is there something going with the MSblast thing or are my PC's and my girl's just freaking out?

BTW : linux really rules

Sounds odd. When you say you can't get to them - is it a dns issue? Can you reach any of:

http://64.179.4.146

Do you all use the same Internet Service Provider?

What errors are you getting?
What happens when you try to logon to the internet? Dial-up, cable?
Can you open a dos prompt and ping anything?

But you can't connnect to either of those from windows?

I had a feeling that this blaster worm may affect DNS servrs too although I never saw an official report of this.
