we have an EE/orange brightbox. Wireless connections are fine.
However, in a more remote part of house, we have an ehternet cable going from router to a netgear EN104 hub and then another ethernet cable from the hub to a windows xp PC tower.
I have managed to assign a manual IP address and used the router's setting for the gateway and dns settings. It now says that it LAN is connected. I cannot access the internet, however.
Could anyone advise what the next steps are? I have tested the ethernet cable connection via my windows 7 laptop and it works fine without the need to change any settings. I assume I need to modify settings on the XP tower but have run out of ideas!
