1 of my 2 pcs can't connect to the net

Hi, I have a strange problem. 2 of my pcs are connected to a router; only one of them has no internet.

When I open a browser, the "cannot find page" message appears faster than usual.

I tried connecting the faulty pc directly to the modem but that didn't work.

I tried restoring a .gho file and it had the same problem.

The same thing happened to me a month ago --- in desperation I formatted and re-installed winxp --- it worked! But I don't feel like going through that again. Is there an easier way? Thanks.

  1. open a command prompt window and post the ipconfig /all info from both computers here for us to check.
    Have you tried an ipconfig /release and ipconfig /renew in a command prompt?

  3. Have you tried running the network wizard?
    Are these address coming from the dhcp server in the router or are they static?
    Whats listed for the dns server and dhcp server addresses.
    Do an ipconfig /all that will list them.
  4. oh man ... it turned out to be Pc-cillin 2006.
