    I am having problems getting into some sites from my machine, I am able to
    acces them via another computer at work and the sites are fine, but
    everytime i try at home i am getting page cannot be displayed. I'm running
    XP with explorer 6 the sites are not blocked by the firewall or anything
    else. Any ideas?

    Do you have a Hosts file?
    If you don't know what one is, the chances are you don't have one, as you would
    have had to load it onto your pc.

    I have had that problem and Dell had me unplug my modem and then turn my
    computer off. Wait a minute and turn the modem on. When the light are
    all steady except the data light, turn the computer on. I am using
    Windows XP with browser 6.0. It works for me but it does happen about
    once a month.
