do you get a yellow triangle on the network connection saying "limited or no connectivity". Also try this copy whats below into notepad and name it "DNS Reset.reg". Then double click the file select yes then ok and reboot your computer.

Hello Melissa and welcome to Geeks to Go! :)

Could you follow the steps below.
  • Open your Start Menu and select "run.."
  • In the runbox type "cmd"
  • When the black box comes up, type "ipconfig /flushdns"
  • Then when that's done, on a new line type "ipconfig /release"
  • And finally after the releasing is done, type "ipconfig /renew"
Let me know if this solves the problem.
NOTE: This should be done with the router in the set-up and these steps should be run on the computer that doesn't work.
