Can someone help me. My problem is this: I work for a small company which has eleven computers which are running Win XP home edition. The main computer which we use a server has got internet connection but the rest can't access the internet. this has been happening for the past two days. I am able to access other computers but just can't seem to access the internet. Any help will be most welcome

can the server get to the internet

by gubi4 In reply to need more details

If the server can reach the intenet, then you have a dns problem, in this network setup i usually set all the computer ip addresses to dynamic, and then enter a dns address from your isp, and a dns from your server into each of the computers dns addresses. Try that and you should get to the internet, and browse your network.
