Ok we have 2 computers on the internet connected on the same ethernet line through a switch. I can access all websites on one PC while on the other I can only access a selection of websites like google trademe hotmail etc While 99% of websites do not work including websites like nzherald.

After hooking up my other PC to the line I thought was faulty, all seems to be working well so its deffinately not the internet connection. I was wondering what could go wrong. Its with Windows XP and I havnt really made any changes as such to any settings.

I hope I have explained the problem well

So how do you have your computers connected?

Broadband modem - switch - PC's?

And when you remove the switch everything works fine?

OK my explination was'nt that clear...

Firstly 2 coomputers are connected to the internet through one router with an ethernet switch. One of the computers has trouble visiting 99% of websites, while the other works fine.

So what I did was I took the Main case of the computer that works fine and connected it to the other connection (which was not working fine) and found out that when I connected the other case to the previously faulty connection (or so I thought) it works fine and I can access all websites.

So I came to the conclusion that it is not a problem with the Internet connection but rather a problem with the CPU BOX.
