I have problems with downloading real weather in FS2K4. I get a notice from FS to look up the internet connection and settings, but the internet browser works flawlessly.
What could be the cause?
Could there be a fault with my network setup which I just installed?
PC1 (running FS) is connected to the internet via W-LAN to a W-LAN router. It therefore gets a dynamic IP adress from the DHCP server. PC 1 is also connected over LAN (by means of a second router) to PC2 and PC3. In this LAN each client has a fixed IP adress. Both IP adress groups are different and have different submasks. I can run the internet browser and FS at the same time independently on PC 1 and have the LAN working fine at the same time.

Thanx for your help!

See the firewall settings, maybe he blocks the conection between FS and internet.

Thanks for the advice, no it wasnīt the Firewall. I donīt know what it was, but its gone. Everythings working fine again. My guess is, there was a conflict of the IP adresses on the two networks, which are networked. If I start the internet first and download the whether, and THEN start the LAN, then it works.

Cheers
