Do you know if your ISP use a proxy (username and password to login before you can get online)? What connection type do you have (LAN, cable TV, ADSL etc)? Also, do you know if your connection has a static IP address that you have to setup in the operating system before connecting or does it use DHCP (automatic detection)?
