I started a network with the Netgear WGR614v6 wireless router. The network includes my desktop and my sister's laptop. (there is also a "family" computer, but it's not included in the network.) The network has been running fine for about two months, but since yesterday, i can't access the internet on my desktop, but my sister (on the same network) can. I think the problem lies in this: when i look at the settings for the local area connection, on the diagram it has it shows that plenty of packets (of info, i guess) are being sent, but none are being received.On the comp (and the router) it shows that i have a connection, but it's not shown as being active. All of the physical connections are are okay (my computer is connected directly to the modem via ethernet cable). Also, and I don't know if it's necessary to say this, but the family computer and my network cannot access the internet at the same time (i think the family comp is too old to be equipped with one). Whenever i want to get on the internet, i would take the family connection out of the modem, plug in my cable, and reset the modem. This has always worked before, so i don't think it's any physical problem with the modem or ethernet cable. I have tried removing the firewall and changing the IP address, but it doesn't work. I'm completely at a loss, and any help would be appreciated.

Hello panzer_baiken,
Can you think of any hardware/software changes you might have made in the intervening time between the network working and and network not working?
Could you please (on both of the computers) go to Start, Run, type: CMD, and then type: IPCONFIG /ALL and post the results here.
From the computer that can't access the Internet, can you ping (to ping, goto Start, Run, type CMD, then type: PING location. ie: PING YAHOO.COM or PING 192.168.1.101):
1. Your sisters computer
2. A website; ie: yahoo.com
3. Your router
Could you please run a traceroute by going to Start, Run, type CMD and then type: TRACERT YAHOO.COM; please post the results.
It might also help if you try all of these steps from your sister's laptop as well, to act as a comparison.
Does your desktop computer have up-to-date anti-spyware and anti-virus software, and have you recently scanned? It is possible that your TCP/IP stack has been corrupted by malicious software.

did you set that as a static ip? if you did...that default gateway needs to be set to your router's ip address
