I have a pc and a wireless router connected to a 2wire router. The pc connects just fine. My laptop connects to the wireless router. When I connect the laptop direct to the 2wire it doesn't connect. I have turned off the wlan switch on the laptop and turned off the wireless router to see if that makes a difference. When we have traveled with the laptop, it seems to connect to wired internet in hotel rooms just fine. If the wlan switch and the wireless router are both off here, shouldn't the laptop connect with my 2wire right away? Don't know if I have explained this very well, but thanks for reading.

Please show for both PCs connected to the 2wire (indicate which is which if it is not obvious).

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.

After following the above directions, I got a black box labeled Command Prompt. Not much in the box. Microsoft Windows[Version 6.0.6002] Copyright <C> 2006 Microsoft Corporation all rights reserved. C:\Dick>
