Hi everyone,

I'm having a few problems accessing the internet. While browsing and emailing works perfectly, most other programs simply cannot find an internet connection and simply tell me that I am offline or there is a DNS error. I'm at my wits end on how to solve it. I really need some of the programs for work.

I'm using Windows XP Pro SP3 on a always on ADSL connection. I'm connected to my router over Wifi using a static IP address.

Any help would be appreciated.

ps. I've added the programs to my Firewall exceptions
