...from my home PC (MESH running Vista).
Set up roughly is this. Broadband to ADSL router, then cables to either home or work PC. Work PC is fine - hence this post. The internet is present and correct, so there's nowt wrong with the ADSL.
All was fine until yesterday evening, since when either Explorer or Safari do the same thing, which is go to the homepage (BBC), and perhaps one site after that (STW) but that's it. It doesn't freeze - for example I can ask it to go to the STW forums repeatedly - it gives me the old "contacting..." but never opens it.
I've checked the network diagnostics which say everything is fine & internet connection is good. Bullguard tells me there are no viruses etc. Oh, and the PC is set up with NetNanny which hasn't caused any problems yet & seems to log me in fine.
To get t'internet on home PC involves unplugging the work PC ethernet cable and plugging in the home PC cable (work supplies the Broadband & ADSL but won't do wireless etc.). So checking anything out does mean disconnecting one PC and reconnecting the other - hence testing for any problems does take a bit of time!
Suggestions gratefully received (other than I should have got another Mac).
