New router now cant connect to net on one PC

  anniesboy 19:58 03 Mar 2011

Im running two Vista PCs connected by cable ,plus a W7 laptop wireless and ipad,
I was having issues on laptop with poor wireless uploads only,down loads were OK .
My ISP have sent me a replacement router was a Thompson 585 now a Netgear DGN2200.

The problem I have is that after connecting the Netgear ,which installed without difficulty.
One of the PCs will not connect to the net ,the laptop connects as does the ipad,and the upload problem has been overcome.

The PC that wont connect shows on the network but wont connect to the net.
Ive changed the cable,tried different ports on the router ,with no success.
I suspect its something simple that I have not done, any suggestions?

Have you tried right clicking on the Network icon and selecting Repair? This should clear the old settings from your old router and set up the new ones.

Yes I've tried that,I get remote host pinged but no response.
Then tries to repair but gets no where.

The PC that's not connecting if its on Ethernet cable the settings should be set to Auto Connect
