I have a windows 98se system that is logging onto our domain but when I attempt to use the internet it won't display pages?  Do I need to reinstall IE or something else?

Hi SCUD1,

A bunch of questions for you :)

Can you tell us a little more about what happens when you try to access the Internet?  Do you get any error messages displayed?

Is there a proxy server on your network, and is IE configured for this?

Enjoy!

No...the system is not working on a proxy server so that's not the issue.  

I can log it onto our network and access files from our file server but when I go to the IE browser it comes up saying that the page could not be displayed.  I tried our specific home page and get the same.  It's like the system is not getting internet access but I know it is because it's logged onto the network?

I hope this explains what you are asking.

Thanks so much for your time.

Thanks - useful information.

Here's a useful way of testing if it's a web browser problem or not:

Go to a command prompt,
telnet www.microsoft.com 80
GET /

(then return a couple of times)
You should get a load of HTML, before losing the telnet connection.

If that works, then the PC can contact the web OK; this then points to it being an IE issue.
If it doesn't, then it's something to do with connectivity.

Let us know the results of this test, and we'll do a little more :-)

Hi SCUD1 - thanks for accepting my answer.
I'm glad that I could help, but I'm a little confused as to what the problem actually was?
