This machine I am using is on it's last leg. For the past several months, every now and then, I hear a "clunk, clunk" from within the machine. It's nearly ready to be buried.

Anyway, I have another computer that is ready to take it's place. It works great. When connected to the net, it shows packets being sent and received, but when I try to use the browser, messenger or anything that needs a connection, the various software act like there is no connection to the net.

It seems to me I need to make a simple change somewhere in the machine but I don't know where. I checked under Connection settings and it shows the internet connection is active. There is something I am overlooking. Anyone have any idea whats wrong? I want to get the thing working before this one completely dies which based on what it did last night, it can die any minute.

Thanks very much!

Did you allow your browser ( in your firewall) to access the internet?
