I've upgraded from Win ME to Win XP Pro. I have 512 MB Ram on a Pentium 3 running a 1GHZ. Since i've upgraded, i cannot load any web page using IE6 or Firefox. i've checked my internet settings and they appear to be okay (PPP:Windows 95/98/NT4/2000,Internet). I'm sure that something happened with the upgrade but i have no idea what it was. i could browse the internet using IE and Firefox prior to the upgrade just fine. Also, my modem does connect with my userid and password--i just cannot load any web site or url. Please help :scratch:

Suggestions of a couple things to check.

First thing to try is typing in the address bar on IE6.

If this brings up the tomcoyote website, you may have a problem with your DNS setting. If so go to control panel, internet and network connections, internet options, right click on your dialup connection, properties, networking tab, select internet protocal and select properties, make sure obtain DNS automatically is checked or check DNS numbers are correct.

If still getting the page not found error. try going to run and typing in


to get a DOS type command window. Then enter


If you are connecting to the internet you should see

Reply from bytes=32 time=xxx TTL=55

If you get that message try typing

ping forums.tomcoyote.org

and see if you get a reply from that. If not its likely a DNS problem. DNS converts the name tomcoyote.org to a IP address

Also check the window XP firewall - SP2 activates it automatically

control panel, network and internet connections, windows firewall.
Go to the advanced tab and see if the firewall is enabled for your dialup connection. If it is go to the exceptions tab and make sure the show notification when a program is blocked is checked.
Run IE6 and try to bring up a website. See if you get a notification.

If you are adventurous you can try connecting to a website with the firewall turned of if it was on.

If still getting the page not found error, post the results of the above and I'll try to help you troubleshoot it further.

I would advise most strongly against doing that. If you do, we'll be troubleshooting even more issues on your machine.
