    I have 2 PCs in my house both connected via wireless router to cable
    modem. A desktop running XP and a laptop running Vista. The desktop
    will connect to the network and internet without a problem. The
    laptop connects to the network but cannot access the internet. I've
    tried reseting the router, modem, rebooting but nothing seems to be
    working.

  3. Hi
    Can you elaborate on what "Can connect to the network" actually means?
    Can you transfer Files between the two computers?
