Facts: desktop: apple mac Laptop: sony vaio Windows xp Adsl router: Dlink DSL G604T IPS: Talktalk broadband
Problem: Mac connected via ethernet cable to router: No problem. Sony viao connected via buit-in wireless adapter. Problem.
Showing in all connections panel is as follows: Internet Gateway:local area connection: connected on DSL-G604t(Status=614.4kbps?) This is like dial up, but I only have broadband. Lan: 1394 connection 2 (Connected Firewalled) Local Area Connection (Network unplugged) Wireless Network Connection(Connected,Firewalled) Status =24.0MBps.(2MB)
Why have I got two separate connections and also why does Innternet Explorer not work. I have used the fix winsockfix several times and it works for a time but then goes off. The strange thing is I use the laptop at work on the cisco network and I have no problems. Is this other Local area connection causing the problem. Any help would be appreciated Thanks ado
