I have two laptops connected wirelessly and 1 desktop wired to a linksys router. All 3 of the computers connect to the network fine but one of the laptops cannot connect to the internet. All the settings on the two laptops look identical and there appears to be nothing in the network settings that specifies why one laptop should connect and one should not. It used to work Ok but seems to have stopped for some reason. I cannot recollect changing any settings that would have caused this.
hi having previously worked I would asume that a firewall might be the cause but as howard63 says the workgroup name could be an issue and posting more details regarding your OS on all pcs concerend would be an advantage to fixing your problem,mammak
I would look again at a firewall doing this. Which firewall is running on which piece of equipment. You also do not say how you connect ie is 1 pc connecting and you are then using internet connection sharing for the rest or do you have an adsl modem connected to the router?
