Cabl broadband to wi-fi

  Larry the Loafer 23:55 21 Sep 2007

I have a 2MB Virgin Media Brodband Connection linked to a netgear 54mbs router. My Acer laptop with netgear 104mbs ethernet card initialy worked perfectly. But now despite the laptop showing card and ethernet apparently connected I cannot access either the internet or dowmload my e-mails.
A second laptop is able to connect without any issues. Any bright ideas?

Try disabling your firewall, try accessing a site by its IP address eg BBC

ht tp://

(remove the space)

Do one at a time, reboot if required.

Thanks for your reply. I tried all of the above with no luck. The mystery got deeper when this morning even the second laptop would not log on. Seemed to be a problem with the broadband supplier. Now this has been fixed, both laptops are back in business. I really don't understand why there was a probem with the one laptop yesterday though.
