I've got a laptop and a desktop here at home, both of which have always plugged into this Linksys router and have always worked great. I just rebooted my desktop for the first time in awhile and now suddenly it can't access my router. If I try to log into it with 192.168.1.1 it can't find it. The laptop still can and works just fine as it always did.
I tried removing the Ethernet adapter and reinstalling it on the desktop, still no help. I tried resetting the router with no help, and again, the laptop gets it fine.
I can't ping the router from the desktop, I can't get internet, I can't get to the config, nothing.
When I boot into Save Mode w/ Networking on the desktop my Network Adapters don't even show up!! Not even in device manager. I tried going disabling all startup programs via msconfig but that didn't help either.
Any information on what might have caused this and how to fix it would be greatly appreciate.d thanks!
