I have comcast cable and its running to my computers via a wireless router.

Nothing is for sure wrong with the connection or router, because I'm on my laptop right now.

However yesterday I went through the process of removing the HSA hijacker from my desktop, and afterwards my home network was messed up for whatever reason. The computer is running Windows XP so i went to My Network Places and ran Set up a home or small office network. However when I did so I mistakenly chose "This computer connects directly to the internet. The other computers on my network connect to the Internet through this computer". Then once the wizard was done my internet no longer works and under network connections there was a new listing entitled "Bridged network" or something of that sort. I disabled it realizing I chose the wrong option and now I can't get my internet to work at all.

The wireless card is getting a strong signal from the router, but its as if the computer isn't realizing its supposed to be looking towards the wireless card for a connection. Under Network Connections the ethernet card and firewire are also options but I've long since had them disabled.

I've exhausted all of the limited ideas I could think of, anyone have any other suggestions? I feel like its something simple but I'm just overlooking it.
