OK this is weird! I saved all my network and IP settings into a file and then deleted my current location. I then went through all the setup procedures to recreate my Network and IP accounts.

I find this very strange since everything is exactly the same as it was before! jg Brian Caslis typed this message on 8/12/04 6:08 PM: > This sounds like your network settings are not right.
