By nybob10 ·
I have a win2k box that stopped connecting to the internet (IE) and OE stopped working also. Can ping internet addresses. reinstalled tcp/ip, checked cables-ok, new nic put in-same issue, can access shared folders on the local network. flushed the dns, what am I missing ? (besides my mind) thanks for any help !!

Can you PING a domain name, like www.yahoo.com ?
Let's start there. There are other things to try.

Although what Joseph Moore say is the best place to start with, I would suggest, before doing that, because you said the IE freeze and the OS also, in the same time, download from the internet (maybe using another computer and then transfering it by means of CD) the AdAware program and use it.

If you can't ping by using names, that's a DNS problem. You should try to ping computers in the network by using their names to see if it's an internal DNS problem or external DNS problem. Check also for any firewalls or TCP/IP filters. Check on the DNS server if the simple test and recursive test are accomplished. If simple test fails, check the reverse lookup zones, if recursive test fails, check the forwarders and then the external DNS, such as ISP DNS. Tell us more about how the things go.

If you can ping an IP address, I would say DNS is problematic, If you can ping, say, www.yahoo.com, then I would suspect proxy settings for IE. Check the proxy settings and then check to see if IE worked internally and externally. Then reply back with the updated info
