XP Pro frefuses to connect to any site but Google.ca
Sorry to sully this troubleshooting guide with a Windows problem. Neighbour running XP Pro amd Internet Explorer can connect to Google.ca (but not Google.com) and run a search which reveals appropriate links, but all of the links refuse to connect.
I'm stymied. The modem is fine, and the Google results are real but he can't connect to any another web site.
I tried the same in Firefox but it won't even connect to Google.ca.

try changing the dns entries in the modem/router to 184.108.40.206 and 220.127.116.11 (google's dns servers) , check the Hosts file Windows XP & Vista: C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\DRIVERS\ETC , also run a program called malwarebyes, see if they have picked up anything.

Just another thought, but possibly they have some setting set or a utility (like some Parental Control type thing) that's preventing some sites from any access and they are 'black listed' preventing any access.
