I am using a wireless network now, but i can't seems to be able to connect to my own network. I am actually not sure what going on, yes i am able to connect, but when i open I.E no matter what url i type it doesn't come out, just except the error page. So i click on repair and it say error with clearing the arp cache. But then when i connect to other people wireless networks around my residence area, hey i can use them instead ! So can anyone tell me what going on and how do i solve it please ?

2 suggestions if you are using XP home edition

1 Open notepad and write this: netsh interface ip delete arpcache
Save it as a batch file to clear the cache manually
Put it somewhere convenient (like the Desktop)

2 Disable and stop Routing and Remote Access found in Services or Computer Management ...These are found in Administrative Tools in the Control Panel

Hope this helps and feel free to reply :tazz:
