Wireless Lan/DNS Resolution problem
Posted on 2004-04-10
I have three computers linked together through a wireless ad-hoc network. Computer 1 is connected directly to the cable modem, and works fine. It also has a wireless adapter on it that is used to connect to Computer 2, a desktop machine running Win2k, and Computer 3, a laptop running Windows XP home.
I can ping all the computers from eachother. I can access the internet from Computer 2, and Computer 1, but the laptop doesn't want to work properly. I've got it set up to dhcp, and it has no problems getting the proper information. I can even access google, and two or three other websites, but that's about it. When I enter an address, say cnn.com, my laptop resolves the information, but then the traffic just stops. I've been playing with this for two days and haven't found a solution. I can access my other two computer's shares from the laptop, and do anything I want to within the network, but I just can't do anything on the internet.
One other thing, I completely formatted the hard drive a couple of days ago, and that's when the problem began. All drivers are reinstalled, and everything is working properly, but I just can't use the internet.
