Unable to access internet thru web browser
I connect to the internet via a LAN. But I have this queer problem wherein, I can access the net thru Windows explorer, but not thru a web browser. Please advise.

Windows explorer
Is this a windows question?

If you can access through Explorer, but not IE (or Firefox, Opera, et al.) Have you tried clearing out your temp internet files, swap, et cetera?
tried re-installing your browser? (I'm fishing here, I haven't touched Windows in over a year...)

A Windows question, yes. I cleared out my Temp internet folders and reset the swap settings. But I'm still stuck. I use a switch to distribute the network flow to my two machines. But how is it that Windows explorer opens the web pages and not IE? I thought they shared the same code. Help :-(

Check your browser's proxy/connection settings. Each browser needs to be configured separately to use the internet if you're using LAN and not a direct connection.
