I have the Dell 2400 and I installed Windows SP2 and now I can't
connect to the internet. Dial-up works but when I open up the browser
IE6 nothing will open. My main page is Yahoo and that, and no other
bookmark will open. I've tried every URL but no dice. Any clues?

Firewall? What about it? If it's on that doesn't mean the NET shouldn't
work.

The winsock may have been corrupted. Try this tool and see if that fixes it.
I use it all the time to fix clients machines that have this problem for
whatever reason. Usually spyware and/or viruses are the culprit.

I assume the system was scanned and clean of all virus, adware,
spyware/malware threats? If not, the SP2 install could've gotten hosed up
due to existing problems or corruption.

A hijacked browser or various re-directs won't be fixed or improved with an
SP2 install.
