Folks, this is my first post to this forum, thanks for having me. This is a tangled web, so please bear with me. I have a two year old dell xps 1530. Recently it stopped recognizing my OEM vista license. I did a repair and fixed that by doing a system recover from 10/28, but my access to my wireless router Linksys WRT160N stopped functioning. The router is still working since I'm accessing it now from my daughter's MAC. Strangely, I can't access the router from my other laptop which is also a dell running xp. The error messages (3) I get from my xps relates to two different possible network adapter driver/hardware problems, and also internet protocol bindings. I'm not a pro at this and I can use any help you have to offer.

Thanks.

John G.

I'm not sure if this a long-term fix, but we'll see. I disabled v4 and v6 internet protocol bindings, then re-enabled them and now I have internet access via my router. If this isn't a long-term fix (like after a restart) I'll post a reply. Thanks, John G.
