VT6X4 and TCP/IP

    I think I have had two VT6X4 motherboards now where, with a PCI network card
    installed, TCP/IP stops working. I can ping URLs, I can connect with Yahoo
    Messenger, ICQ, etc., but Internet Explorer just doesn't work, even on a
    clean install of WIN98SE. The network cards wqork fine in other PCs. When
    the first one went, I thought maybe I burned out something on the mobo. Now
    that the second one is exhibiting the same behavior, I'm wondering if anyone
    else has seen this?

    Is your ISP requiring you to use a Proxy?

    As you might already know, pinging is a UDP (control) message and not
    a TCP message.

    Nope, no proxies required or in, although ad-delete and other popup
    interceptors from time to time worked fine, tcp/ip won't even work with a
    direct connection. WINIPCFG releases and renews the IP just fine, just
    can't get to any web pages.
