I have a computer that I can not get to access the internet.  I have tried both IE and Firefox.  The weird thing is that I can sign on with AOL for Broadband and access the internet.  Even when I'm signed on with that I can not use IE or Firefox.  Releasing and renewing my IP address works fine.  I tried uninstalling aol and i still can not access webpages like www.ebay.com.  My other computers work fine with my broadband connection.  Any ideas?

    I can also ping websites from the command line.  ping yahoo.com works fine.  But I cannot access the internet using IE or Mozilla Firefox.

    I have a list of things you should try to repair your connection (although this is for XP, it applies to the latest W2K systems with Service Packs installed).  It is located on my website:

    Here was the answer I accepted.

    Try manually resetting tcp/ip and check if that would help.

    Course: MongoDB Object-Document Mapper for NodeJS

    NodeJS (JavaScript on the server) is awesome, but some developers get confused about NoSQL when it comes to working in Node with MongoDB (NoSQL database). Do you need a better explanation of how to use Node.js with MongoDB? The most popular choice is the Mongoose library.
