  1. hi everyone, i was wondering if someone can help me with this problem? i recently installed windows xp pro on my new maxtor 160gb hard drive and everything went fine. i installed aol and i can connect to the internet and view pages with that browser, but when i try to view pages with IE6 or update windows it says "cannot find server.....the page cannot be displayed" i have this computer connected to a netgear rp614 router, and the other computer seems to connect fine using IE6. does anybody know whats goin on?

    Since this is a new install, I guess you haven't set up networking correctly. Copying all network settings (besides computer name and IP address if not automatic) from the other computer should do the trick.
