    A few diagnostics here would be helpful. "Configured as directed" is pretty
    vague.

    Please provide ipconfig information for each computer.
    Start - Run - "cmd". Type "ipconfig /all >c:\ipconfig.txt" into the command
    window - Open c:\ipconfig.txt in Notepad, copy and paste into your next post.
    Identify operating system (by name and version) with each ipconfig listing.

    From each computer:
    From a command window:
    1) Ping www.yahoo.com.
    2) Ping 66.94.230.33.
    Report success / exact text of error messages.

    From your browser:
    3) Browse www.yahoo.com.
    4) Browse 66.94.230.33.
    Report success / exact text of error messages.

    And please don't contribute to the spread and success of email address mining
    viruses. Learn to munge your email address properly, to keep yourself a bit
    safer when posting to open forums. Protect yourself and the rest of the
    internet - read this article.

    OK, I'm trying to read between the lines.

    You are saying that:
    From the Gateway, you can ping (from the command window) AND browse (from IE),
    both by ip address and name, successfully (all 4 tests).
    From the Client, you can ping (from the command window) successfully, but
    browsing (from IE) gives "could not open search page" for both ip address and
    name.

    ?? Did I get that right??

    This points toward browser corruption or hijacking of some type. Let's look at
    the hijack possibility. A lot of work here. Take it one step at a time, but
    be thorough. Crapware is very ingenious in hiding on your system, so don't skip
    any steps please.

    Search your entire system drive, including hidden and system folders, for file
    "hosts". There is one legit copy, in C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc\. The
    others are possibly bogus, and part (but just part) of the problem. Examine the
    contents of each copy found, using Notepad. (HINT: Scroll to the end of each
    Hosts file, by hitting Ctrl-End, then back up to the top, page by page, before
    deciding that the file is empty. Look out for blank lines at the beginning and
    end of the file, after localhost, placed there by an exploit!)

    How current is your virus protection? Try one or more of these free online
    virus scans, which should complement your current protection:
    <http://www.bitdefender.com/scan/license.php>
    <http://www.pandasoftware.com/activescan>
    <http://www.ravantivirus.com/scan/>
    <http://security.symantec.com/ssc/home.asp>
    <http://housecall.trendmicro.com/housecall/start_corp.asp>

    Now check for, and learn to defend against, additional problems - adware,
    crapware, spyware.

    Start by downloading each of the following additional free tools:
    AdAware <http://www.lavasoftusa.com/>
    CWShredder <http://www.majorgeeks.com/download4086.html>
    CoolWWWSearch.SmartSearch (v1/v2) MiniRemoval
    <http://www.majorgeeks.com/download4113.html>
    HijackThis <http://www.majorgeeks.com/download.php?det=3155>
    LSP-Fix and WinsockLSPFix <http://www.cexx.org/lspfix.htm>
    Spybot S&D <http://www.safer-networking.org/index.php?page=download>
    Stinger <http://us.mcafee.com/virusInfo/default.asp?id=stinger>

    Create a separate folder for HijackThis, such as C:\HijackThis - copy the
    downloaded file there. AdAware and Spybot S&D have install routines - run them.
    The other downloaded programs can be copied into, and run from, any convenient
    folder.

    First, run Stinger. Have it remove any problems found.

    Next, close all Internet Explorer and Outlook windows, and run
    CoolWWWSearch.SmartSearchMiniRemoval, then CWShredder. Have the latter fix all
    problems found.

    Next, run AdAware. First update it ("Check for updates now"), configure for
    full scan (<http://www.lavahelp.com/howto/fullscan/>), then scan. When scanning
    finishes, remove all Critical Objects found.

    Next, run Spybot S&D. First update it ("Search for updates"), then run a scan
    ("Check for problems"). Trust Spybot, and delete everything ("Fix Problems")
    that is displayed in Red.

    Then, run HijackThis ("Scan"). Do NOT make any changes immediately. Save the
    HJT Log.
    <http://forums.spywareinfo.com/index.php?showtopic=227>

    Finally, have your HJT log interpreted by experts at one or more of the
    following security forums (and please post a link to your forum posts, here):
    Aumha: <http://forum.aumha.org/index.php>
    Net-Integration: <http://forums.net-integration.net/>
    Spyware Info: <http://forums.spywareinfo.com/>
    Spyware Warrior: <http://spywarewarrior.com/index.php>
    Tom Coyote: <http://forums.tomcoyote.org/>

    If removal of any spyware affects your ability to access the internet (some
    spyware builds itself into the network software, and its removal may damage your
    network), run LSP-Fix and / or WinsockXPFIx.

    Cheers,
    Chuck
