Can anyone tell me where I am going wrong?
My connection worked fine until I downloaded and tried to use Firefox. It then worked for a little while, but now (on my ethernet connected desktop) I It just says Server not found. Email wont connect either. I configured outlook Express accoding to the instructions on here....it worked fine, but stopped working at the same time as the browser.
Strange thing....my wireless connection from my laptop is working fine.
Any clues as to what is going on???
Thanks for any thoughts.

i dont think firefox is related to your problems, maybe just coincidence.
may sound silly but have you restarted your pc yet?

In my experience reboots fix all sorts of problems.
Try rebooting your computer. If still no go turn off your router and your computer then power up your router followed by the computer.

for some bizare reason make sure the lan connection is enabled in network connections, if it is try right click disable, reset bband router, wait till it boots up again. then in network right click enable, give it a few mins and fingers and toes crossed.

I had problems with connections - kept dropping and telling me no server found
I found that the auto-detect network settings was not ticked in Firefox Internet options - not sure if the Sky software had changed my original settings or what but ticked the box and now everything Hunky Dory!

There is a VERY powerful utility called WinsockFix.exe that will clean up your TCP/IP connection and rebuild the database. After the program is complete, reboot and your problems should be resolved.
It is simple to use, quick & brilliant.
I have not provided a link because
I take NO responsibility, use it at your own risk - create a restore point 1st, but it can back up your registry for you as well.
It is widely available & works for Windows 9x/NT/2000/XP.
If you still have connection problems after this, your problem is not your windows configuration.LWNEDG
