Sorry if this has been covered before, I tried searching for my answer but can't seem to find the right words to find my particular problem in the database.
I have a desktop computer with Windows XP Family plugged to a d-link router. There's also a laptop with vista plugged wirelessly to the same router. I have a cable internet connection wich is always on. The router is connected to the internet so is the laptop. The desktop computer does see that there is a connection to the internet but I can't access it via IE7 or Firefox, it always tells me "Can't find page".
I checked for IP conflict, I released the ip, flushed the dns, uninstalled IPv6 and removed a hole lot of viruses, some were hooked to netmon and DNSconnect. I can ping the router from the cmd prompt and I can also ping the DNS server of my ISP but anything beyond that point I can't ping at all. I checked my host file and cleaned it. Still I can't access the internet. Could someone help me please I really am stucked right now. I'm pretty sure it's a simple solution, but I think the holidays affected my brain a lot more than I thought :(.
Thanks in advance.
