limited Internet Access?????

By Tewell Guy ·
Our small company is set up with a LAN consisting of 6 work stations. We are having trouble accessing certain web sites on 2 of the stations. All other stations have unlimited access to any address they choose. I have tried everything I know (which is limited) and cannot come up with an answer. Can anyone point me in a direction?

You didn't say what browser is being used, but if IE go to tools, internet options, security... And check if they are all the same. Also check tools, internet options, content. It may be enabled and settings may be stopping you.

Stations use IE 5.5, one uses both IE and Netscape. Settings are all the same. I adjusted the IP Configurator on one system and there was a glimmer of hope, but I am unable to recreate the results again.

Can you PING the external websites by IP Address from the "problem" workstations? What about by DNS Name? If "No" and "No" then TCP/IP is "broken". If "Yes" and "No" then TCP/IP is crippled. Look into the TCP/IP setup, especially as it relates to DNS lookups. While you're at it, make sure the WINS lookup is configured the same. Oh, and also look for other network protocols and set them up to be the same as the "non-problem" workstations.

TCP/IP settings are all the same and LAN is working properly. The system owner said that he did download an Internet "optimizing" program. The problems seemed to occur after this program was installed. It has since been uninstalled and the manufacturer insists that it makes no permanent system changes.

I had a problem with one PC that was using IE. I went to Internet Options>Connections>LAN settings and unchecked all of the options and clicked OK. They didn't have any problems after that. I also had another one that was missing the DNS name in theTCP/IP properties.
