I'm running Windows XP Home with a USB wireless adapter to a Linksys router and cable modem. 2 other computers in the house with wireless have been able to connect to the internet. My wireless adapter software says that I'm connected to the network that the others are on, but I get a message that says that the (internet) page cannot be displayed when I try to connect via Internet Explorer.
I had to do a clean install of Windows XP Home after a malware attack. I cleaned out the virus but after installing AVG 11 and rebooting I got stuck in a boot loop that I couldn't fix. I haven't installed any of the Service Packs yet, and am wondering if this is related - or whether I should be looking at the Linksys router software, which is, of course, not installed because it is somewhere else. However the Linksys software isn't on my Mac, either, and I have no problem getting online with that using the same router/cable modem.
I've tried fixing through IE and ran some config dns commands to clean out the dns; also searched for the latest USB adaptor driver and installed it.
Any help would be appreciated.
