I have a computer that acts strange whenever connected to a network with a shared internet connection.
This has been tried on two setups, one with a DSL line directly connected to a router which then connected the network, and another one with a computer with a DSL connection that then shares it to the computer with the problems via ethernet cable.
I have the same problems both times, which makes me think it's something with the individual computer rather than the network itself.
File sharing and "normal" networking stuff seems to work just fine, but I can't access any web pages. I am able to play games online etc though, it's just web browsing that doesn't work.
On the setup with the router, I got web access in short bursts of a few minutes every now and then, after which nothing worked again.
I have tried all settings I know of in both IE and firefox, but can't seem to find anything that solves this.
Edit: I use different ethernet cables in the two setups, so I think I can ignore that as a possible source of the problem.
The network card is built in on an NForce 2 board on the computer that is having problems. I've tried reinstalling new drivers.
