So- I just got home from college and turned on my laptop to hop on my 'rent's wireless network and check my email and I connected to the network fine but no internet. I tried restarting the computer a couple times and restarting the router (linksys) and the modem (GI SBC) and still no internet. I tried repairing the connection and that didn't help. I tried to ping an outside line and it timed out on all four attempts.
So then I unpacked my stuff, set up my mac and it found my wireless network, connected and i'm typing this on my beloved mac at the moment but still nothing from my pc on the internet front. How can I fix this? I'm jonesen for some WOW and my mac can't play it just yet.
My laptop is a Dell running Windows XP Pro with an intel built in wireless card with the most recent drivers. On a side note, on the way in town i stopped at my favorite coffee shop where they offer free wifi and i connected there just fine. So it's something between my Dell and the router at home I assume. My mac and my Dell are running side by side too so it's not a signal problem.
I tried searching before posting but couldn't find a post with my problem so I'm sorry if this is a double post and thank you to anyone who can help me solve my problem.
*edit* Should also note that I'm running SP2 on the dell and tiger on the Mac
