RE: IE8 and "Diagnose Connection Problems"
I have a similar problem; XP Pro SP-3 and IE8. My machine uses the
motherboard e-net jack to connect to a DSL modem (and the internet). I have
a NIC installed in a PCI slot that connects to a home LAN (of two computers).
I am not using ICS. When IE is opened, it goes right to the designated home
page. At the first attempt to go to another web site, IE starts trying to
use the home LAN and reports it can't open the web page. The only way I can
find to keep IE working is to disable the NIC that is connected to the home
LAN. With the NIC disabled, IE works just fine and all is well.
I can find no way to tell IE what network it should use. Is there some
setting somewhere that can make this kind of assignment?
