Problem solved!!!!!

When I was plaing around with the fire wall I suddenly go a symantec window pop up and said that there is a tcp\ip problem. Then I relized that maybe th antivirus is giving me trouble. so I un Intalled it but still nothing happend. I almost lost hope than said I'll try and install an antivirus anyway just for the moment.

Durring instalation It said that there was a preveious vertion that is not working properly and shure enough after the new instalation it all started to work.

So for future refrence check the AV settings.....

sorry we couldn't get to you before you fixed the problem but thank you for posting the sollution....the symantec firewall (in norton internet security suite) seems to cause a lot of issues...with very little info about the issues it's causing...it does some funky things with network settings that can be quite confusing
