"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Test by performing the following

1: Connect to your Internet Service Provider
2: Ping your ISP's Primary DNS
3: Tracert your Internet Service Providers Domain Name.

If all this fails contact your Internet Service Provider...

this has nothing to do with the internet.  this is my home network.
On your NT machine TCP/IP may not be installed.
Ping the NT machine from the same machine using both loopback ( and Ip address specified by you

Go to control panel -> Network -> Protocols

Make sure you have TCP/IP there and is properly configured.

Click on properties button and choose
Specify and IP address
choose 192.168.0.x (this is reserved for local networks)
subnet mask :

click OK
