Now my computer seems to be blocking the router.
There are three other connections to the router that all work fine.
I have tried the following:
-Connecting my computer to a different port on the router
-Connecting using a different cable
-Connecting my computer diretly to the DSL modem (This works, I do get out to the net)
-Setting to a static Ip and manually entering DNS for the gateway (Normal setting is to find automatically)
-Turning on and off XP firewall...no effect
My LAN connection shows as a network cable disconnected. It flashes for a second as "connected" then disconnects.
It does this repeatedly with no change in behavior in any of the above mentioned conditions.
The lights on the front of the router are off, blink on when it makes its attempt to conect, then go off again.
It has the appearance of the router being somehow blocked by the computer.
Again, all other connections continue to work fine as does connecting this computer directly to the DSL modem.
What am I missing?
