Dial-up

I set up a computer for a friend and they now have no internet access. The modem will dial up the remote computer fine and connect, but I cannot open a browser.  When I run ipconfig, it say I do not have dhcp enabled, but I do have the boxes check to obtain the IP address and dns server automatically.  I have reinstalled internet explorer and the TCP/IP stack on this several times. Earthlinks says the problem is on the local system. This is on a P4 running Win2K Professional.  What am I missing?

Kill the stack again and remove the dial-up adapter reboot and let it reinstall. See if this fixes your problem
