cannot connect to internet - info included
Posted on 2006-06-02
OK - I have just built a new PC and transferred the netgear w/l card from old to new and I can't connect to the internet.
I am writing this on a laptop connected to the same netgear router so in theory everything should work. all comments relate to the non working PC now...
The router sees the card (attached devices shows this)
I have manually assigned IP address of 192.168.0.4, subnet 255.255.255.0, default gateway and dns servers are both 192.168.0.1
I can ping the router from the pc and vice versa the connection is showing as 'vey good'.
The card works in the old machine still
have rebooted both router and PC
when I try to connect to the router or the internet from firefox or IE it fails
Windows XP - did have sp2 but uninstlled it
netgear 834 router
netgear wg311t card
help !!! if you need any more info just ask!
