One computer unable to access certain content, others in network able.
Posted on 2006-06-09
A really odd dilema I have concerning my primary desktop and any other computer connected to my network.
I have a Linksys WRT54GS V1.1 Router connecting my desktop and 2 wireless connections: another desktop and a laptop (both wireless)
These two are able to access most, if not, all kinds of media, gaming without connection problems, etc. Wired or Wireless. I have also tested a couple of friends' laptops and they can connect to what they want to with no problems.
My desktop (wired), however, is unable to connect to online media (streaming media, one example is NBA.com TV). I also have troubles connecting to online gaming services such as Steam (can connect to login server as it knows if I enter a wrong password) and Battle.net.
I have tried the following ideas:
1) Connecting directly to the modem.
2) Opening ports needed within my Linksys router & Windows Firewall.
3) Disabling Windows Firewall.
4) DMZ mode on & off.
5) Used the Linksys WUSB54GS 1.0 Adapter in thinking that a Wireless connection would allow me to connect to media.
I'm starting to believe it's my desktop that's unable to since I don't think it's an ISP problem as any other computers connected to my router can access any media wanted.
I have ran Ad-Aware, Spybot, Windows Defender, a couple of online scanners also.
Any suggestions are greatly appreciated! Even if I have to repeat some things.
Edit: My apologies. Here are the system specs:
Windows XP Pro SP2
AMD Athlon XP 2600+
2GB Corsair RAM
MB: MSI K7N2 Delta-L
Any other info that is needed, ask away! ^^
