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.
