background- 3 wireless computers and 1 hard-wired (ethernet) computer on a modem+linksys router. 1 wireless and the hardwired computer don't have the following problem:

I don't know what this is, but it's making me angry. i managed to get it successfully off two of my computers, but on the other 2, it remains a beast. What I'm talking about is an "Internet Gateway," which doesn't have a "delete" option, and if i disable it, the other computer cannot get online. Backing up a step, the other two computers were remedied by Add/Remove windows component, network services, uncheck Gateway, ok, next, reboot. If i try said steps on the 2 problematic computers, neither can connect, even though it says it has an excellent connection. I can disable the gateway, but to the same effect.

Hello. Sorry it took so long to find your post.
When you refer to the Internet Gateway are you referring to the The router's internal IP address (something like When the problem occurs have you checked to see what the IP address is for all 4 computers. Were any of them the same?
have you tried resetting the LAN?

1) Turn off all computers, and unplug the modem\router.
a) Release the IP address. (Start> Run> cmd> IPconfig /release)
b) Now turn the computer off.
2) Wait one minute and plug the modem\router back in.
3) When the modem\router finish booting turn all the computers on one at a time.

If it is a LAN IP address conflict this should clear it up.
