Please bear with me a s I am not very good at PC problems so be patient !
Before Christmas I was running my desktop through an ethernet cable to my ISP. The router I am using is a netgear DG834.
The router has a link for a wireless modem so I have purchased one - a D-Link DI 524.
I have wired it as shown - from my internet link to the netgear, from the netgear WAN link to the D-Link with a hard wired ethernet cable from the netgear to my desktop.
My desktop is working fin, I have normal internet access but my laptop will not conect to the internet.
The laptop has picked up my wireless link, it shows a 54Mbps 'normal' connection but then when I try to go to the internet it cannot connect.
I have typed in the CMD line the IPCONFIG address which returns lots of 'data' but one is the IP address on the laptop is 192.168.0.161 & on the desktop it is 192.168.0.2, I have also pinged the router and received 4 returns but when I ping a web address it cannot find it.
I am desperate - my kids are about to kill me !!!!
PS - laptop works fine hardwired through the netgear router
