I haven't found this at all myself - I have turned off AutoDial in my
control panel settings for Internet networking, which maybe the problem. 
Try running Jigsaw like this:

java w3c.jigsaw.http.httpd -port 80 -host 127.0.0.1 -root whatever

This should start Jigsaw with the looopback address, which you can then
access through a web browser with http://localhost/ (though not with
Internet Explorer 3beta1 for some reason, although I don't consider that
much of a loss right now).

I've been playing with Jigsaw this way for about 2 days now and it works
just fine.
