Hey guys, my computer is clearly connected to the internet because i can join removed msn messenger still works. However, it wont let me access the web! :) I cant access any web pages on any of my internet explorers and Firefox keeps saying "connection to server was reset".

Do any of you guys know whats going on here? Appreciate the help. :tazz:
