    Can you connect to the router wired and wireless at the same time?

    And do the following - Start > run > cmd

    Type in here - ipconfig /all

    Paste the results here :)

    Try putting in the IP address as 192.168.0.2, and gateway, and dns as 192.168.0.1 manually. Let us know if you can then connect.

    I always put in the numbers manually for my home network. That way, I always know it will be correct and work.

    Actually, there's absolutely no reason to have to manually configure the network, just creates more work for you.

    TCP/IP stack repair options for use with Windows XP with SP2.

    Start, Run, CMD to open a command prompt:

    Reset WINSOCK entries to installation defaults: netsh winsock reset catalog

    Reset TCP/IP stack to installation defaults. netsh int ip reset reset.log

    Reboot the machine.
