BTW I have cable internet, My Bother has Vios.
So the problem is IE & mozilla firefox (which I downloaded because IE would'nt connect) won't connect (it will start & try to connect, but won't) at my brothers house. He can connect by starting up AOL, (definitly broadband, no phone wires attached, router showing activity) but some web pges won't connect even on AOL. I'm showing a good 100 mhtz (?) broadband connection thru the network card. I checked all the lan settings , I have tried with automatically detect settings checked and unchecked, just wont connect? I tried all the different ways to setup an internet connection, no good, I tried to repair the connection, no good, I tried everything I could think of, no good.
He still is showing 2 old dial up connections, should I delete them? We have "never dial a connection" selected.
Should I try deleting and reinstalling IE?
