Hi All, OK I have a Dell wireless router a Dell laptop & a Dell PC.I can connect to the internet from the PC if I don't go through the router. If I connect the router I can't connect to the net with the PC or the wireless laptop. It all used to work until I got a parasite take over my home page. I got rid of the parasite and got the pc back on the net. Do I have to do something to the router also? If so what? Thanks for any help you can give. ED

I have XP home on both. I can get on the net with both but not through the router or wireless. I have to connect direct to the lan.
Hope this info helps. Thanks ED

I'd walk thru the make network connection then to see if something got messed up. Be sure to choose the correct setup, i.e. my computer connects thru a residential gateway, then go from there.
