    Internet access problem with workgroup notebooks

    Strange Monday morning problem today! Friday network access via our workgroup notebooks was OK but today both IE7 and Firefox unable to pull up any web pages. Ping of BBC OK. Sophos updating OK. Any suggestions please?

    workgroup notebooks
    ?

    What do you mean by workgroup notebooks - do you have other types of computers that work OK.

    Does sophos update from a server on internet or local network?

    regards

    I think that he means a group of laptops connected in a WORKGROUP setup compared to a domain setup.

    That's right, it's the notebooks our teachers have for Smartboard work. Other Workgroup computers (Admin SIMS net and Headteachers) OK but I just found another Standalone that connects as a workgroup PC which can't access the internet either - but yet again it can ping the BBC ok in under 10MS.
