I am runnig a home LAN with broadband internet via router. I have one computer one the LAN that the browser (MSIE) will not contect to the internet. (I keep getting the server or DNS not found) This computer is working well on the home net work, ie. I can access all other computers from it and vise versa. The other computers on the LAN fine the internet connection just fine, I have the troubling computer configured the same as the others. Any suggestions.

Hmm, that is interesting. It must be the configuration of that machine since all of the overs operate fine. Firstly, open up the Command Prompt (Start, Run, type 'cmd' and click OK) and type ipconfig /all, then press Enter.

Do this on one of the working machines and post back any differences from the output here.
