Sorry, I realized that after I made the post.
I have a laptop with a wireless connection and is networked to my desktop.
I am able to get on the internet most of the time from my laptop, but my desktop says there is a network cable unplugged. But when I troubleshoot Linksys I can see that all the cables are where they should be, though linksys from my desktop says is unable to detect the router (even though my laptop can access the internet - seems weird to me) - This is the main issue,
I have had problems with Eplorer like i Listed and when I ran Windows Live OnceCare it said I needed to update Explorer
I clicked the link to the windows site, download it, an run it, but it just keeps running and running and makes no progress, eventually it freezes and I have to shut down. I believe this is because my explorer is not able to access any web pages about every 20 minutes and I have to reboot. I did a system restore last night and it seems to have helped though I dont know how or why, and Im sure the problem is still here
