I have two computers, sharing DSL by a wireless router, one is using cable to contact to the router, the other use USB wireless adapter, they both worked fine.

The wireless adapter was broken yesterday, so I want to connect second PC to my router with cable. However, IE and telnet doesn't work at all. I checked ip using "ipconfig", everything seems fine. I can ping my ip, but can not ping "www.yahoo.com".

However, one of the Online Chess Software installed in my commputer can connect outside, i can use it play chess online, but IE doesn't work. Now the computer is a chess playing only machine.:(

The first computer are perfect, those two are both using windows XP. What's wrong with my networking. :( Thanks.

You say you can ping your IP. The IP of the other computer, or itself? What are the outputs of ipconfig on the two machines? Is there any chance that the router's firewall is configured differently regarding wireless vs wired connections? (Chess shouldn't be working if IE isn't; only a filtering type function would be able to do that...).
