Hello,

I cant connect my XP laptop to the internet. My computer is part of domain. The domain consist of more than 20 windows 2000 and XP computers. I can access the shared server drives. But i am not able to access the internet through internet explorer. We use DHCP in our doman, I have gone through Internet wizard, Ipconfig release and renew. And can also ping to the outside. But can't connect to internet. Please help!!!

It sounds like you are having a DNS lookup problem. One thing I would check is if you are setup to use an LMHosts file that is redirecting your named seeks another is what is chosen in network settings for TCPIP for a DNS? or is your DHCP setting DNS and if so to what? you can check this by opening a command window and type ipconfig /all then hit enter.
You must have a DNS server in order to resolve domain names like www.microsoft.com. If you think this is the problem try opening browser and instead of www.microsoft.com use the ip address, this will not require a DNS. If you do not have a DNS server setup you will have to see what DNS you can use on your network from your IT guys.
Hope this helps.
