    Hi there. Yesterday after downloading something my internet disconnected from my desktop. However, the internet works fine on any other computer in the house. I'm assuming it's some sort of virus or something...I ran McAfee and it found nothing. When I tried connecting yesterday, it gave me all kinds of different reasons why it wasn't connecting when I diagnosed it. Now however, when I try to connect to it, it says the network key is incorrect, which it isn't. I've found many many threads on people with problems such as this, but none have helped me solve my problem. Can anyone help?

    Read Everyone MUST read this BEFORE posting for help in this forum and post the requested information here. When I see that you have posted the information I will move this thread to the Virus & Other Malware Removal forum.

    Bump your thread there once a day--no more often--until you get a reply. They're kinda busy over there.

    If you prefer to first try to get a network connection ...

    Start, Run, CMD, OK to open a command prompt:
    (For Vista or 7 type CMD in the Search box after Start)

    Type the following command:

    IPCONFIG /ALL

    [Note that there is no space between the slash and ALL.]

    Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter.
    Paste the results in a message here.

    If necessary use a text file and removable media to copy the results to a computer with internet access.
