I have a small LAN with three computers on it, one of which is a laptop. I can ping the laptop and even operate it remotely using VNC, but when I open a browser (usually Firefox) I cannot see the web. No error messages - it just doesn't do anything. The other two computers on the network work as expected.

Yes, the correct address is reported on all three machines.

Yes, the correct address is reported on all three machines.

I should have mentioned that, in addition to the three, computers there is a print server, a printer, and four cameras on the network. Also, there is a fourth computer, but it is not currently running.

I forgot that there is one more item on the network: A Hughes HN7000S modem which provides my satellite internet access. There is no router; only switches. Except for the NICs, that is all there is to the network.

Well, the HN7000S is a network device, so it is not necessary to share it. Also the print server, printer, and the four cameras are all network devices, each having its own IP address. So I have not activated Internet Connection Sharing. I did use ICS with my previous satellite modem, a DW4000, before I upgraded to the HN7000S two or three weeks ago. But it was a USB device.
