The computer directly connected into the router still gets internet however. I've tried everything i know how to do as far as releasing the ips and restarting the devices. The downstairs computer says its connected but just has no internet.
Something strange though.. My ipconfig tells me my default gateway is 188.8.131.52 but downstairs when I connect to the router and http://192.168.1.1 I get the routers main page. I dont get my routers main page when going to http://192.168.1.1 with the directly connected computer.
Any help would be much appreciated. Both computers run windows 7 64 bit.
