Basically I am running windows XP and att dsl internet. Whenever i open up internet explorer on one of my computers at home I cannot get off of the home page. I type a url in the adress bar and it just pops open the home page in a new window repeatedly. I can however surf around the att home page site.

Did you try changing the home page in IE?
Which version of IE are you using?

Two things come to mind. One is that your DSL registration is somehow incomplete or corrupt. Or that you are trapped in AT&T's 'walled garden'. Unfortunately I don't use AT&T and do not know what is required to get past their portal. You might check their FAQ's since you are already there.
