Hello, I'm having this weird problem with my network configuration. I had my modem going into a wireless router and a network cable going from there to a switch and finally into my computer and the neighboring room's computer. I disconnected the router to move it somewhere else and now it won't work even though the cables and the devices remained the same.
So I gave up on the router and connected my switch to the modem and now my win7 computer can access the internet, but the computer in the other room which has XP can't connect.
I changed routers, I changed cables, I reset computers, routers and modems. Nothing works, it's either my computer has connectivity and the other one doesn't or neither does. I'm driving myself insane staring at blinking lights, is there something wrong with my network?
