I have a wireless network with one desk top and three notebooks. All works fine except for my son's Gateway notebook. All of a sudden the wireless connection is fair and it won't connect to IE. When I do ipconfig I get the following message:

Ethernet adapter Local Area Connection:

I have tried a couple of things I found as fixes on different boards with no success. I disabled all firewalls from the desktop and laptop and then I deleted all history in IE and reset....Any Suggestions?
