  1. Yesterday was my first post on here and could get great results and from your help and now I could access my router.

    I am facing a new trouble:

    I have my two computers attached to my router and the router can connect to the internet and show a WAN ip address on the screen.

    But

    both computers can not see the internet when I click explorer. It takes a long time (several minutes) to load up yahoo.com. All the photos and ads don't show up, only text. But if I ping yahoo.com on either machine it works fine and replies back quickly.

    So does anyone have any advice why both machines can not see the internet but the conection is working fine by ping?

    Have you set IE on the machines to use some proxy by any chance?

    You should try some spyware-safe browser like Opera or Firefox to make sure your issues are not cause by IE or some malware.
