Thanks for the information, I have researched the references you supplied
and with some experimentation I have found a solution.
If the local LAN (192,168,0,8) card is initialised first and the ISP
broadband LAN second (order given by ipconfig) the system works correctly.
If the initialisation occurs the other way around I get the symptoms I first
Although I have not extensivly exprimented it appears that WIN XP is
initialising the LAN cards in MAC address order and
therfore you get a 50/50 chance of getting it right first time. If I get
time I will examine this futher but for now I have a working
system and I am grateful for that.
