network connection problem

I have a laptop with an early version of windows 2000. It is never normally used to connect to the internet, but I got caught out today and used it to set up a broadband router. Explorer went belly up and can no longer access different sites. It set up a new default home page which I think was radiomagnetic.
Back at the office, I tried to connect to my desktop machine, which is normally straight forward, in order to copy over some antivirus software, but the machines refuse to connect. I can ping each machine from the other, but that is all.
My priority is to connect the machines, then get rid of the virus (if that's what it is)


PS sending files from the laptop may be a slow process

Right click on network places on the desktop, Properties. Then right click on the local area connection and choose repair. This fixes almost everything most of the time.

OR you might try deleting any protocols and then the network card and re-installing all of networking.

Just a couple of ideas.
