alright here we go. My computer connects to the internet through the DSL modem. I have it setup so the internet connection is shared with the rest of the home network. My mom's computer is having problems. She can logon to AOL Instant Messaging without a problem but IE and outlook don't do anything. They look and look and come back with nothing. Here is how my Network connections screen looks: Any thoughts on wtf is happening? When I resetup my mom's computer to connect to the net through mine it realizes the connection is there.
