Tearing my hair out

    Please, please see if you can help me!

    My desktop PC has a rather flakey wireless connection, as the router is at
    the other end of the house. Eventually, I ran a network cable from the
    router to the PC. Unfortunately, Windows still seems to prefer the wireless
    connection to the cable.

    Specifically, if I disable the wireless connection, I can connect to the
    router using the cable connection, but I can't get beyond the router to the
    outside www. I can ping the router and get a <1 ms response, and I can bring
    up the router's admin screen.

    I thought that maybe this is an issue with the cable or the router, but if I
    plug the cable into my laptop it connects just fine.

    Any ideas please?
