An XP workstation keeps timing out after connecting to the internet,  IE& will load 1/2 the page then time-out. I tried pinging an external website it works  for two pings then times out. If I sign-on as the local admin on the workstation the internet works fine.  What should I check?  All other workstations are set-up the same way with no problems.

What happens if you ping the server on the LAN?
Same network driver on all machines?

The ping to the server works fine, also to the other workstations on the lan.  The lan consists of (5)XP workkstations with dfferent types of hardware containing different drivers.

I would update the network driver to the latest one. Just to make sure...

How does the client connect to the Internet? Directly via a router on the LAN? Via the SBS (ISA server)? Whats the client's default gateway pointing to?
Have you tried a different port on your network switch?

Honestly, I'd run a virus/spyware check. Sounds like a problem with the user profile on the machine. Maybe try renaming the current user's profile and then resetting it.

The workstation was losing 25% of the packets sent.  I finally figured out it was the 8 port cisco switch that was bad.  Thanks for your help.
