Hi , not sure if i'm posting on the right forum, but thought this was as good a place to start as anywhere.

For the last 3 days have have not been able to access the internet. My browser is firefox ( although I've tried IE also - with the same result), but everytime I try to load a page I get a "server cant be found " message.

I'm running windows XP.

I've got a Netgear wireless card which is showing that it is receiving an excellent signal. I can access the router (also Netgear) and have contacted my ISP - Orange, who have confiremd there is no fault on the ADSL.

I've tried disabling the windows firewall, but this makes no difference.

I'm having to post this from my work PC as I just have no net access from home. As anyone got any suggestions as to what I can try next?
