Firstly, have you tried to enter an address into your browser? (Brings up a box asking if you want to stay offline)

Check your network connection (ethernet cable) is working.

Have you tried restarting the computer?

Comfirm there really is an internet connection: Open a command prompt (start->accessories->command prompt) and type "ping <a website>"
You should get (amongst others) 4 lines that look like
Code: Select all
Reply from xx.xx.xx.xx: bytes=32 time=25ms TTL=49


Open IE and go into Internet Options. On the Connections tab remove any connection you don't need (likely all of them) and click on "LAN Settings" and make sure everything is unselected.

Open Control Panel, open Network Connections. How many have you got, and what they called?

With regards to the 'project' Heidi you need to allow the relevent ports on both your firewalls. I belive windows firewall has a check box on its config page to allow file and print sharing but can't remember exact details off hand.
