No one can access web except me?

Hi
Installed Binatone modem last night, did all what the instructions said but I am the only user on our XP Home Ed. who can get in.

We have 5 other accounts (wife and kids) on XP but they all get the same message,
FORBIDDEN 403
and something about you do not have access to control lists.

Can anyone help on this

Many thanks

Can I ask what ISP you where with, prior to PlusNet?

Some companies like Freeserve, change your proxy settings. The modem installer should remove them, but only on the current account.

"Forbidden" "access control list" sugests that the proxy server is returning this message.

You could try removing any proxies listed under

Tools
Internet options
Connections
Lan Settings
Untick the "use proxy" option.
