I can get ComCAT's homepage fine, but I can't get any other web sites?

Check that the address of the site you are trying is correct.  If the web site you are trying is a very popular one, try another web site (very popular web sites could be experiencing heavy traffic). 

Try disconnecting and rebooting your computer, then reconnecting.  If this still doesn't help, click here to double check your DNS settings in your Dial-Up Networking connection.
