Thursday Morning I tried to connect to the internet on the desktop. It was showing that the LAN had a low connection, and could not access the internet. I tried the two laptops, and the same thing. Later that evening, I was able to access the internet through the router on both laptops, but not the desktop. Around 10 PM I went to use the Internet on the Laptop with Vista. I was only able to make a local connection, not to the internet. Today, on both laptops, I am unable to access the internet, and make a local connection.
On the desktop, I tried repairing the LAN connection, which it wouldn't let me. I tried connecting to the internet through the broadband connection (WAN Miniport PPPOE) which we used to connect to before we had a router. It wouldn't let me connect, and kept trying to redial.
I unplugged both the router, and the cable modem for 5 minutes and then plugged them back in to let them "power cycle". I still have the same problem trying to connect with the desktop to both LAN/WAN and the Laptops to LAN.
I am, however able to access the internet on the laptop with vista plugged directly into the cable modem, and using a broadband connection, from where i am typing this message.
I hope I explained the problem correctly. Anyone know what the problem can be? and a Solution?
