Yes, I have tried all the steps on the belkin site, they are the same as the microsoft suggested.
I cannot check the verisign one, it will not load on the mega, it does so on all other computers on the network.
Yes I can get a sucessful connection to all sites with an ad hoc connection throught the host PC with a crossover cable.
ALL firewalls disabled whilst I sort this out.
Have not chased up the MTU issue, I am fairly convinced it is a red herring with a tiscali dial up connection (Ie no broadband, no AOL)
I have upgraded the firmware on my USR wireless acess point.
It has been not only a pain but made no difference.
I have tried various different network configurations, all to no avail.
I have a further question though. It seems that all the troubleshooting advice that I have been following relates to problems connecting to secure sites, ie ones with the prefix https://
I cannot connect to some http://
sites either, ie Ebay hotmail or plain old microsoft. Am I missing something here?
Anyone here with nothing better to do than review all this post and suggest where I may be missing something so very obvious it is embarrasing?
Thanks for continued interest, Epirb.
