I have a home network with a laptop (wireless) and a PC (wired), both connect to the internet through a DSL 2-wire gateway from Qwest. My PC has developed a problem connecting to the internet from a browser. I can get e-mail and my programs update automatically, but cannot connect using HTTP. I can ping websites. I have installed, uninstalled, and reinstalled IE7. I tried Mozilla. Nothing will connect. I can connect fine using the laptop. My network is working and I can see and access each computer from the other. I have checked all the settings and made the PC settings the same as the laptop. Help..
