      Internet Browser problems

      Good afternoon chaps! I have been having a look through the info here, its all very useful. I've had sky bb (mid) for nearly a month now and oddly enough everything appears to have been going really well. That is until yestarday.....

      It was working fine in the morning and I could browse with firefox, etc. However when I came home from work having changed nothing as far as I can see, both firefox and internet explorer refuse to connect to the web.

      The line is active. My wifes computer can still access the net and after much pratting about I found that my computer can still browse the net but only if I go to the

      control panel -
      internet -
      connections -
      setup new connection. It says I am already connected and if I then click browse net it works as normal (IE7 only)

      Clicking on firefox, IE explorer or any online game straight from the desktop results in 'page will not display' or a not connected to the net message as applicable.

      I am running Windows Vista 64bit. Eset antivirus. Windows firewall.

      Has anyone encountered this problem before? It has me a wee bit puzzeled to be honest. Thanks for any help in advance!
