My laptop will find the router's signal and connect to it, but the internet doesn't work. This happens both when I connect to the router wireless, as well as wired. The internet DOES work on the computer when I connect it straight into the modem, and totally bypass the router.
But the thing is, the desktop in the house is wired to the router and the internet works fine on it.
I've tried all kinds of things I've found on the internet, including Winsock fix, resetting the router to default settings, updating its firmware, IP release and renew, simply scanning my computer for malware, and countless other things. Nothing seems to help.
I should mention that the router is at my parents' house, and last time I visited the internet worked no problem; now I came home and it doesn't seem to be working. My laptop worked on my apartment's wireless internet just fine the night before, but I'm still not ruling out any possible problems with my laptop.
Thank you, I'll really appreciate anyone who might be able to help me!
EDIT: Oh, and my laptop has XP, the desktop has XP, and the router is a Linksys WRT54G
EDIT AGAIN: Just booted my computer in safe mode with networking, and the internet works. So I think it's likely a problem with my computer.
