Re my recent post, Some websites wont open...\n\n ' I have a desktop (host), wirelessly linked to a laptop. I have a \nBroadband\nmodem and a router, both the same brand, also I am running Windows XP\nfirewall. My home network operates fine and I am able to share the internet\nand files etc. However when I go to a website although I can access the\nwebsite part of it I can't with my desktop but can with my laptop.\n\nFor example when I go to my local library and want to access my account I\ncan with the laptop but not with the desktop. I read somewhere how one\nneeds to open ports, could this be the problem?\n\nI spoke to a couple of techs and one agreed and one didn't. One tech\nsuggested I use DMZ the other tech said no. I'm confused. There was a lot\nmore to the discussion some of which I grasped and some I didn't.'\n\n-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\n\nCould Java vers 5. update 9 have anything to do with this???\n\nSorry, but I am creating a new post as I felt maybe my last post will no \nlonger be viewed.\n\nMany thanks all\n\nB.W.
