I'm having a problem with networking my two computer together.
We got them in 2005 and I remember spending a LOT of time and energy having to network them together the first time and having a crapload of trouble, to include having one of our Internet service techs come out and install something. They need to be networked because the second computer pulls its internet via a wireless router from the first.
With money being tight and all this last December, we let the bill go and they shut off our Internet. The bill is now paid, and after discovering that our modem was bad [it has since been replaced], our Internet is back up on the main computer. However, the second computer is not responding to the network. It's not even recognizing the wireless signal. I've tried everything I can think of, including reinstalling the drivers, but I cannot get it to work.
ANY suggestions on how to repair this would be greatly appreciated.
N.B. The second computer had a terrible virus on it. I believe the virus is gone, and I know I need to reformat the computer but have not yet [quite honestly, I'm scared to in lieu of everything else that has happened]. Could this be affecting why it is not recognizing the Internet?
