Yes, that was the router setup info that I obtained from entering the default gateway (not the IP number) into my browser.

Setup is as you suspected, and it has worked fine since May. Only Sunday night did it go wonky.

To router IP and default gateway numbers, "Destination Host Unreachable" (4x).

To www.google.com, "Unknown host www.google.com"

I was able to ping myself, though; does that get any points? :tazz:

do an ipconfig /all on the laptop..
on the desktop
set your ip address info in the network connection to the same as the laptop..but for the actual machine's ip address make the last set one number higher

I'm not sure I know what you mean, Dave . . . OK, I have all the laptop config info. So, I go into TCP/IP Properties on the desktop and manually enter IP address, Subnet mask, and Default gateway to match the laptop info? And which number should be +1?

TIA-- Pam

the last set in the ip address so if your ip on the laptop is 192.168.1.2 then on the desktop it should be .3.

Just tried it, with the DNS info from the laptop too (same as default gateway?) and it didn't work. Do I need to reboot?

Must let dog do her thing before the thunderstorm starts . . . be right back!

Dave, thanks for your help so far. Have a great evening!

Pam

Update: I tried the numbers again and no change. I also tried plugging in the IP address that I found in the desktop's own ipconfig -- no change either. So I changed the TCP/IP properties back to automatic.

Hiya Dave, I already had checked the device manager and checked it again ... nothing out of the ordinary, I even opened up all the devices that have "+".

I couldn't connect to the first URL, the second didn't seem applicable b/c I couldn't find the settings mentioned ... but thanks for the links. I have to go out now but will poke around that site later. Thanks! Pam
