I recently put together a computer from parts. I installed windows xp, bought a wired router (Dynex) and hooked it up. Now, only the old computer can connect to the internet. I can ping the default gateway and the older computer just fine but I cant connect to any web sites. I have switched the cables around and switched the ports around to rule out a bad port or cable. Also, on the manufacturers configuration site, both computers show up on the dhcp list. I dont know what else to do, any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks

what about a proxy setting.....check whichever browser you are using to ensure there isn't on in place....

if you are using IE check here.....tools-->internet options-->connections tab-->LAN settings button
