My internet was working fine for the most part until last night.

Netgear Wireless router - WGR614v5

Computer 1 - Desktop XPsp2 (home)
Computer 2 - Laptop XP SP2 (pro)
Firewall - Zonealarm
AVGfree

My laptop SEES the network - 54mbps, but will not browse

I have spent hours looking for answers but have been unsuccessful

Are these contributing issues?

1. CMD PROMPT will not release, renew ip address (stuck in c:/documents folder)
2. TrojanGuarder lists TCP localholst:Netspy; status-connecting - is this trojan?

I am at a total loss and about to kick my laptop across the room.

Please help before i have a pile of microchips sitting in the trash

Thanks

Laptop doesnt see desktop. Laptop DOES see the (SSID) that the Desktop is currently accessing the internet with.

I am very confused so if you can also provide me with instruction on how to find certain components that you are referencing, that would be so helpful to resolving this situation.

Thanks in advance

(Firewalls have been turned off without a desired result. should I keep them off unti i solve this?)
