LAN, but no Internet

Guest

Hello,

Hopefully someone can assist me.
Up until recently I had a perfectly good functioning LAN & internet
connection between my 2 PCs (W2K). Now I only have the LAN connection, but
can no longer access the internet via LAN from the Client PC ("page cannot be
displayed") !!

Present Setup:
Client & Host - W2K + IE6.0 with latest updates
NICs:3COM 3C905B-TX. Connection to internet is via USB to EUMEX (German)
ISDN splitter. Internet access software is supplied by ISP (SmartSurfer).
On both LANs I'm using "Client for MS Network, File & Print Sharing, NetBui
and TCP/IP".
"Enable Internet Connection Sharing" & "Enable on-demand Dialing" on the
internet connection are activated.
Eumex (ISDN) settings are all "automatic".
I had static addresses on both machines with the same SubNet Mask
(255.255.255.0) and on the Client I used the Default Gateway address of the
Host.
IE connection for the Client is set to "LAN" and I'm using "Automatically
detect settings" - nothing else is checked.
IE connection for the Host is set to ??

What works:
The Client & Host can ping their own IP addresses
(192.168.0.14/192.168.0.150) and their own Names ("second"/"computer") and
those of the other machine.
Pinging 127.0.0.1 and 0.0.0.0 and w3.org all work except the Client cannot
ping w3.org.


What I have done to date to attempt to fix this:
I have played with all combinations of addresses including automatic
assigned addresses.
Deinstalled NetBui, but this doesn't seem to have any affect - so reinstalled.
I have uninstalled the adapters and reinstalled the latest drivers (3COM
Ethernet 10/100 PCI TX NIC (3C905B-TX).
Re-installed IE 6.0 (+ latest updates).
Deinstalled and reinstalled Norton Antivirus & Firewall (also ensured that
the other PC is included in the exemption list).
Ran Micorosoft AntiSpyware + XoftSpy + HiJackThis (posted to a forum and
deleted suggested files) - found and deleted a few SpyWare bugs.
Ran IspFix to see if the problem was in the Winsock.
Changed NIC cards to see if the problem lies there - no luck.
Lastly, Completely formatted both PCs and reinstalled W2K + Ie6 SP1.

Possible Issues:
I thought the problem could be the Firewalls, but after completly formatting
and reinstalling w2k + IE6, I attempted to access the net from the Client
WITHOUT and firewalls without any success.
I'm not sure this is normal, but when only the Host is turned on the IP
address is different to when both machines are on, i.e IP address is 0.0.0.0
Occassionally Windows Explorer crashes when a file on the other machine is
opened (e.g. When I work on the Client PC and open and work on a file from
the Host PC).

Event Viewer (CLient="second") tells me:
on starting the PC: "Your computer has automatically configured the IP
address for the Network Card with network address 00500437BFD7. The IP
address being used is 169.254.236.46."
When I attempt to access the internet: "The master browser has received a
server announcement from the computer COMPUTER that believes that it is the
master browser for the domain on transport NetBT_Tcpip_{C08BC8C4-6CA0-461E-.
The master browser is stopping or an election is being forced. " or
"The browser has forced an election on network
\Device\NetBT_Tcpip_{C08BC8C4-6CA0-461E-8C93-20411441A18E} because a master
browser was stopped." or
"The browser service has failed to retrieve the backup list too many times
on transport \Device\NetBT_Tcpip_{C08BC8C4-6CA0-461E-8C93-20411441A18E}. The
backup browser is stopping."

Event Viewer (CLient="second") tells me:

I Believe this has been answered before when you posted on the 13/6/05, did
you do anything suggested ?
