Ok, I have a small home network with 3 computers, all three computers use XP
one is a laptop system 2 are desktop systems.
the problem I'm having is that I'm sharing the internet connection by connecting it to one computer, and having the other 2 computers connect through that computer.
up until about 2 days ago everything was working fine, but for some reason now, the laptop cannot access the internet, everything else works fine. the computers can all access each other, and the two desktop systems can access the internet.

I'm using a linksys 5 port hub.
Windows XP sp2 (on all three computers)

I tried using the network setup wizard on the laptop which had worked previously, but for some reason it can't seem to see the internet connection on the other computer.
any ideas?
