I have my laptop (using xp) connected to the internet via a network cable into a 4 port modem that I have 2 desktop computers in also. The desktops are conecting and talking to each other no problem but the laptop won't connect and my msn messenger trouble shooter tells me that my 'default gateway appears to be offline'
I went into the LAN (appears that the LAN in 'Enabled') tcp/ip settings and tried to configure an ip address manually, but after getting that in there, now the msn error message is telling me that the ip address is ok, but the dns settings are at fault.
Not sure why this laptop was working fine, but now decides to not connect?
Any ideas ?
