    I've had a home network for a long time now and there have not been any problems until recently. I upgraded one of the computers from Windows 2000 to Windows XP Professional. That computer is plugged directly into the router and the internet worked for about a day. Now it doesn't work. I checked my network connections and the local area connection says its connected. My laptop is working just fine in the wireless network. Everything is exactly how it's supposed to be yet that one computer cannot connect to the internet, I don't know why. I also checked the ipconfig in the command prompt, the ip addresses are not conflicting. That computer is 192.168.0.0 while this laptop is 192.168.0.1 i've no idea, please help!

    What are the IPCONFIG/s showing? I doubt its an OS hardware issue because you wouldn't be able to load the drivers if the OS didn't support the hardware.

    Okay your getting me a ton confused with your IP statements -

    That computer is 192.168.0.0 while this laptop is 192.168.0.1 (then you say you meant 100). Then you say you changed them (and yeah, i assigned the laptop 101 and the desktop 103 just to be sure).

    And now your showing your default gateway as being Default Gateway: 192.168.0.1 which then conflicts with the IP of the laptop you mentioned in the first post.

    Can you please provide us with both IPCONFIG /all's of both PC's and also post the IP that you use to connect into manage your router?

    Assuming you have valid IP information as posted:
    IP Address : 192.168.0.100
    Subnet Mask : 255.255.255.0
    Default Gateway: 192.168.0.1

    Can you ping the gateway's IP address
    Can you ping an external site by IP (ping 4.2.2.1)
    Can you ping an external site by Name (ping www.yahoo.com)
