Well i've got XP as the main machine, than i have a network with 2K, and an internet connection on the XP machine. So the 2k uses the connection from my pc, by me sharing the connection. All this used to work smoothly, than a day ago i noticed a huge slowdown, only some pages load on the 2K machine, like http://www.hotmail.com http://www.msn.ca http://www.whatismyip.com http://www.drlarry.com but sites like: Google Neopets This site etc dont load at all!!!! Any ideas? Thanx P.S when i ping all those sites the pings return fine, nothing is lost. MSN messenger works, so does ICQ, PC Anywhere also works! Though i wrote a simple VB prog to get the contents of a webpage, not using the WEBBRowser control, but an Internet Transfer control, and it returns nothing!
