How can I get websites to display?
I have 6 pc's working fine on the internet and 7 that won't display any webpage.
I have checked for viruses and unpdated the nic driver.
I have tried firefox.
Still no webpages come up.
I have renewed my ip and checked that the dns servers are ok.
all 13 pc's go thru a Linksys wrt-300n

1.any firewall settings? preventing you/ hows the ip address? is it set to auto. have you made any other browsers default?
have you tried ipconfig /release
ipconfig /renew

2.configuring Your Browser:
JavaScript and Cookies for all browsers

3.If you need to replace a bad file from the original Internet Explorer or Windows media, use either the System File Checker (SFC) tool or the Extract tool to extract the file

reinstall IE in Windows using the cmd prompt.

check there is no IP conflict and that all 13 PCs have unique IP addresses.
also check the firewall on that PC.

also try different browsers (firefox)  may give a better view of the error
in IE go to tools - internet options - adavnced and turn off 'friendly error messages'

if its IE6 then goto tools -internet optipns - advanced -reset
