Default Re: The browser could not find the host server

Make sure you can ping your default gateway, also check to be sure you are recieving an ip address on the other computers network (for DHCP).
If you are statically assigning an IP address be sure to add a DNS server or you will have connectivity but you will be unable to view any webpages.

Hope that helps
