just reinstalled xp sp3 on a linux laptop because my new logitech harmony remote needs windows vista+. But hard to upgrade with no internet. XP can see my cisco router and arris cable modem web pages using IP addresses but all URLs in IE are sent to dnsrsearch.com. Is this a problem with Spectrum DNS service or firewall? XP firewall is OFF. TCP/IP DNS servers set to same as working Linux machine. Maybe Spectrum doesn't support XP or IEv.6?
One other weirdness. I am using wired connection to Cisco router which connects to Arris cable modem. If I connect XP laptop directly to arris then arris internet light goes from blinking green to orange. But xp can get arris login at 192.168.100.1 when connecting through router.
