Well this one has me pretty much stumped.
I have a Compaq 3000 Presario laptop with XP Pro installed
Built in NIC, and WLAN
Everything appears to be functioning correctly as far as the network is concerned
My DHCP is assigning me IP and DNS
I can ping addresses @my fire wall @ local ISP @ cisco.com
So my DNS resolution is also working
When I open a browser window I was getting redirected to a search page, but the search page would not come up the address would simply rotate between two addresses very rapidly and no page would display
I took care of this as it was a piece of spy ware that needed a manual un install
Now I do not get any page "page can not be displayed"
and network request say that "no network provider accepted the given path"
It is pretty important that I not do a system restore as there is a lot of user installed "stuff" that would be a pain to redo.
Thanks for any help
