    Might this be 'default gateway'?

    If so either his network settings have been scrambled, or a hard setting was made which is no longer valid.

    For most people the TCP/IP properties should be set to 'automatic' which deals with problems like this.

    He takes the machine to his dealer. Seriously.

    If thats all he knows then he needs expert help.

    If you know your way round network settings then set TCP/IP to 'automatic'.

    100% agree. Sounds like a serious problem, especially since he has 'GONE THROUGH (HIS) WHOLE COMPUTER' and can't work out how to fix it...:rolleyes:
