I have BellSouth DSL. Westell DSL router with wireless. 3 computers - 2 wireless laptops , one (desktop) hard wired.
Both laptops' internet connections still work fine, so I think the router is okay. It seems to be the desktop with the problem.
The desktop worked fine, until I tried to set up 'home networking', since I wanted to share my color printer with the laptops. Since I set up home netwroking, my desktop cannot connect to internet.
It's getting an IP address assigned automatically via DHCP. I went through the home networking tutorial here, the connection checks out okay. It is sending and receiving packets. Went through internet options and set the things to default or as recommended (security, privacy, connections, advanced, etc.).
I can release and renew my ip address from a command line, too. Same default gateway shows for the desktop as for the laptops.
What have I done???
UPDATE: I can ping addresses from a command line with no packet loss. When I open a browser, it will say 'website found, waiting for reply', and of course it will time out. This is ONLY on my hardwired desktop, the two wireless laptops work just fine on the internet.
