A couple days ago the internet just stopped working on my computer. The other computers hooked up to the same router are getting internet fine. My laptop (which I'm on now) is most similar to the desktop that's not working - it has windows 98 and is connected wirelessly.
I can ping the router and the other computers connected to it but not web pages. I can transfer files like I normally do through the network. The Belken utility shows a signal of varying strength like normal.
I tried running the connection wizard, no effect.
I cleared my temporary internet files on a whim and it did nothing.
There was a power outage before the internet stopped working. It didn't seem to affect any other computers but I'm assuming it is at least a partial cause of this, because I did nothing else out of the ordinary. I wasn't even using the computer at the time.
Uh, thinking about what information might be useful:
Belken wireless utility
I'm baffled. Don't know what to try next. I came here because this website has been extremely helpful twice in the past with other computer problems. If anyone can help me it would be greatly appreciated.
