  1. Hey.

    I'm running XP. My taskbar and ISP technician both say i'm connected to the internet on my ADSL, USB modem. However, I can't browse, update software, use P2P program or send mail. Have tried disabling anti-virus, firewall; fiddling with DNS, proxy, and all that stuff. The ISP technician was stumped. Any ideas?
