Hey, thanks a lot. That sounds like the best idea yet. I have 3 computers, and all of them recently were given NIS cause it came with the mobo cd from new cpu. Since it doesn't work on any of mine, but I can download from work, I was looking for a common variable at home. Work cpu doesn't have a cd burner and I have limited usage available. The only common variables at home are: NIS, road runner modem in basement, linksys router in basement, (both were reset), and the fact that all 3 puters have Win xp home w/out service pack 2.
I looked through the blocked sites list in NIS and could not find www.ati.com. Tried to disable everything possible in NIS and got same results. Only thing I didn't try is reinstalling NIS or booting into safe mode.
Three days ago I got to ati.com and would have been able to download, but I hadn't hooked up the new cpu up in the living room yet. Now ati.com doesn't work (I get to a msn search page saying "can't find ati.com"). Atitech.com does work however, and then I can't get past the home page.
Two of the three cpu's went through a live update in NIS. The new one didn't and it gets the same result.
