Bad web connection
I have Vista Home Basic on a laptop, and ever since a successful Windows update a few weeks ago, the web connection has broken, over wireless (or cable) to the router. Until that update, the internet connections on this PC worked fine, as indicated by the last successful update.

For information, the same internet connection works seamlessly from my desktop PC (Vista Home Premium), cabled to the same router, so the problem would appear not to lie with the router or beyond.

"Network & Sharing Center" on the laptop shows successful wireless connection to the Internet through the router modem, but both IE9 and Google Chrome browsers report rejected connections to (for instance) BBC - Homepage - I mention the BBC website solely as an example - all website connections fail.

I can successfully "ping www.bbc.co.uk" (or its IP address) from the laptop, but browser connection fails. Local access is good, as I can ping the only other two devices I have on my local network, the desktop PC and the router.

This seems to me to be a configuration issue, as IP traffic is obviously passing both ways through the router to the Internet, but I cannot think why browser connections should be rejected. Can anyone give me any clues?

I read on another forum about an issue with 'intranet' settings, but I cannot see how to check this. Is this relevant?

Thank you

Sam
