Ok i need you to go to control panel and then to network connections. I need you to double click on Local area connection. I then need you to highlight internet protocol tcp/ip and select properties. Both of these should be set to obtain automaticlly. Once this is done I want you to go to the DOS prompt and do ipconfig /release then do ipconfig /renew. You are either going to get an ip adress or an error. PLease report back with what you get.

Ok after rereading my notes and our chat convo I need you to disable all firewalls and pop up blockers and etc and see if you can connect. It just cant be the router having the problem. Its got to be something on this particular PC.
