Running Windows XP Pro sp3
I am trying to connect wirelessly at home with my work computer (it is a domain computer at work, if that matters). I have no problems with wireless on any of my personal computers, but when I bring up the work computer this new connection shows up in Network Connections under the heading Internet Gateway. I found on some forum to uninstall it by ControlPanel->Add/Remove Programs->Add/Remove Windows Components->Networking Services->Details>uncheck the Internet Gateway. I did this, but I still dont have internet at home with work computer.
I did this and it is gone from Network Connections, but still no internet. I CAN, however, connect to my office via VPN. Just no internet. ipconfig gives a good IP configuration. I have tried releasing, renewing, flushing DNS.
One thing I noticed when the Internet Gateway was there is that I could get to google.com by entering in its IP address, but not its FQDN. With the Internet Gateway connection gone, I cant even do this now.
I do not have this Internet Gateway connection on any of my personal computers at home and I have no trouble connecting to the internet. I can access the internet at work with the work computer, via wireless, without a hitch.
This is all a recent occurrence, and is happening with 2 computers. Mine and another employee who works from home. It may happen with others, I just havent heard anything yet. Please help
