Can't connect online when clicking the Explorer?

  3gboosterman 22:50 15 Jan 2009

My wifes desktop pc seems to work fine apart from when you click on the internet explorer icon and cannot connect to the internet.

The motherboard is a Asus M2N SLI wifi polo.
She has a separate wifi card fitted as well.

I advised her to do/test the following:

Her orange router box works fine.
Her own laptop can surf the web via wifi.
She has gone into the internet connections to reset things, dis-abled and enabled the wifi card and wifi polo.
Refreshed the ip address.
Tried surf using firefox browser to no avail.
Tried system recovery to no avail.
Tried virus scan but cannot find anything?

Could the wifi polo and the pci wifi cards be clashing? I havent tried disabling the wifi polo via the bios. although it worked perfectly before.

Please can anyone help and advise?

I would guess that the two wifi systems may be clashing. Try removing/disabling each of them in turn, also try connecting with ethernet cable. That should give you more information to work on.
