    Funny problem I\'m having (IT/computer related).. Ideas?

    I'll keep this as short as possible.

    My office of 3 people is in a back room of another branch of my company. I piggybacked us onto their network for email and internet "research". I setup a small workgroup so we can use our printers and file share off the "server" here locally.

    Today, I am having my 1st hurdle I cannot figure out. My computer and one other cannot access certain websites on the net. I.e. comcast.net, americanexpress.com and a couple other random sites.

    Out of 4 computers, 2 can see everything fine and 2 cannot. We are all on the same network. Every other site and everything else works fine as it should on the 2 "bad" computers. Done the adaware and Virus scans. No help. Cleared cache and cookies and history.

    I am by no means an IT guy, but it is one of my many jobs here at work, because my company is too cheap to pay someone to actually help us "field" guys out.

    Any words of wisdom from the gurus?

    edit: They are all running XP Professional

    Thanks in advance,
    John

    From the command line, do:


    ipconfig /flushdns <enter>

    If that doesn't help, try (maybe the DNS entry got messed up):

    ipconfig /release <enter>
    ipconfig /renew <enter>
