hi everyone

wonder if you can help, i have a belkin wireless router on the main pc, with a laptop and 2 x boxes running off it

all was ok until about an hour ago, when the main pc decided to default to work offline. i am now unable to connect to the internet at all on the main pc, but laptop etc works fine, the two tv's of the main pc also say connected.

everything i have tried with my limited knowledge has not worked.

i am at a loss as to what to try next other than kicking it out of the window ;-)

thanks in advance
jo

yes windows xp thats your operating system. ok try the system restore on the laptop also. or since the wireless connection was working be for, you could try to repair the connection

if you go to start >my neywork places>view network connections

and then right click on the icon for the wireless network connection

a little menu box will pop up click on repair
and see if that helps

every now and then I get the same problem and I cant connect to the internet and that always worked. let me know what happens to see if that worked.
