I've got a problem with using my computer with a router. It's a bit of a strange situation. I have my computer connected to the internet via a wired router. One day the internet icon in the right hand corner of the screen showed a yellow triangle with an exclamation point saying I didn't have access to the internet. The weird thing is that I was still getting a wireless signal with my laptop and the internet was working fine on it. Also, when I connect my computer directly to the cable modem it works as well.

I went and bought a new router thinking that may be the issue but I'm getting the exact same problems. Does anyone have any idea what is going on?

Thanks

If you click the icon, it should come up with a box saying "repair".
