My computers are connected using Local Area Network with the domain controller.I'm receiving internet connection through wireless.The problem is "one of my client does not access the internet" he gets the message "The page canot be displayed"
Looking to other machines are getting the service.NIC is ok also.When i "ping" my server or any local machine its also ok.I installed IIS and other settings are ok.I'm using server 2000 and the machine is installed with winsXP Pro.IP addresses are auto configured i.e am using DHCP.

Anyone to help?

Is TCP/IP installed in that system?

Is that computer blocked form that internet?

what exact connection exists between the Internet and the XP computer? it sounds to me like a DNS lookup is failing, and that would fail if the TCP/IP setup is wrong. what is acting as firewall between your systems and the Internet?

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
