That's a sign their IT is doing a good job. Just ask their IT staff what it takes for their network.
I have a Dell Latitude D600,running Windows XP Professional SP1.
I go onsite to many different clients. (I am a CPA). For my clients with a LAN and internet access, I generally just plug into their data port, and I can access the internet.
I am now at a client where I plug in , but cannot access the internet. I get a connection, and I can even see the computers on my client's network. However, when I open IE 6, I can the "Page not found" page.
Note that I get an IP address assigned when I plug in, and I can find no other obvious issues.
(The staff in the department where I am working do not know anything about it).
I am just assuming the company has a firewall or something that is keeping my computer from communicating outside the network. However, if anyone can tell me if I am missing something, I would appreciate it.
Thanks in advance.
