Hay there guys.

A couple of weeks ago i had my Computers set up through ICS.
Heres the scenario.

I live in a sleep-out that is JUST out of reach of the wireless Unit.

My Desktop (XP SP3) is connected wirelessly with a USB Extension. The USB Dongle is Enclosed in a waterproof Container, For example a Berocca Tube.
I get Speed: 54Mbps, Signal Strength: Very Good. most times it Excellent.

My laptop (Vista Ultimate) is on the same desk as my XP Computer and its just out of reach of the wireless unit , That is plugged into the Vista using a Cat5 Crossover Cable.

A couple of weeks ago its was all fine and dandy (internet was operational on Both PCs) until i turn the PCs on, I can connect to the internet on my XP Computer but cannot on the Vista Computer.

Local Area Connection: Limited or No Connectivity.
Resolve problem on the vista computer states that there is a DNS Error.

Please note that XP Computers Wireless connection is set up shared and Auto IP and DNS, The LAN is set to Auto IP and DNS. The Vista Computers LAN is also set to Auto IP and DNS

This Problem is ongoing to this very second. Iv followed the Instructions on the Guides From the Forums and Also www.microsoft.com

Nether have worked

Thanks, Steve

Hello TheMastery,

Have you tried setting static IP addresses for the network?

Did you try resetting those IP's also?

Might you try enabling a Dynamic IP and then restart and re-configure a Static IP. You might also try keeping a static configuration, but just changing the numbers a little.
