      I can't log on to certain websites, including Sky!

      Hi,
      Ive just got sky broadband and i cant log into certain web sites (like face book, hotmail, even Sky!) on my PC, but can on my laptop!

      I have the same anti virus stuff on th ePC and laptop, and all the settings seem to be the same (ive spent hours checking!).

      Any ideas what i could try? Any help would be great.

      The fact you can on one machine and not the other means it ain't Sky's end.

      You could try opening Internet Explorer and then going to tools at the top, internet options, choose connections, then LAN settings, make sure there are no ticks in the Proxy settings and try again.

      Try disabling you AV software briefly?

      If you are on XP, you could try going to a command prompt and then typing:

      ipconfig /flushdns

      then hit enter and then once finished restart your PC.

      Take a look inside your modem and see what the mtu size is set to; should be 1500 or 1492. Then look in your registry and look at [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Servic es\Tcpip\Parameters\Interfaces\[Adapter ID]]
      to make sure that IF the MTU is set that it is not set to something different to that in the modem. ( If it is not specified int he PC, then it is not the problem!!).
