The reason is that you have installed registry keys which were valid before Firefox and messenger.
Uninstall Firefox and reinstall.
If messenger is Windows Messenger do the same.

Hi souleater,

Even if your registry was only 6-8 months old, that's a long time to restore a backup registry and there has more than likely been many changes to your registry between now and 6 months ago.

I would suggest downloading the most up-to-date drivers for your computer's network adapter on to your laptop. Then, using a USB drive or CD, copy the drivers from your laptop to your desktop and install them on your desktop. Shutdown and unplug the computer for 30-45 seconds (to clear any residual memory) and try to access the internet again.
