I am currently online on my laptop via my wireless router.
I have a desktop pc with a wireless usb stick which can connect to my router as i can do the 192.168.2.1. thing. It will not connect to the internet though. I keep getting IE cannot display the webpage at various sites.
I have tried Firefox and get similar results (or no result in actuality).
All the little lights are green on the wireless icon (as they should be) and the router is set to accept all pc's.
Any ideas please before i reformat and re-install windows.
PS.... have done complete Virus Check and adaware and found nothing.
With the wired ethernet connection to the router, open a Command Prompt window ("Start > Run", type CMD and click OK) then, at the prompt, type...
...and press Enter. This will show details of all network adapters installed in the PC. Right click in the Command Prompt window, "Select All" and press Enter to copy the details to the clipboard. Paste the details into a forum reply here.
If you are unable to paste the details directly from the computer, because it cannot get online, paste them instead into a blank "Notepad" file, transfer the file to your working Laptop and copy/paste the details from there. That *might* give an indication as to the problem.
