  1. Home Network Issue

    Let me start by saying I'm a real novice, here goes. . .

    My desktop is connected to a Linksys Wireless router using Win XP. I
    also have a notebook that uses a wireless card to jump on the SBC Yahoo
    DSL connection.

    My desktop will no longer connect to the internet with IE or Mozilla,
    yet the Notebook works just fine. I have an icon showing that the
    network has been connected but the ISP's won't work.

    I went to the C prompt and typed in IPCONFIG and I don't see any IP
    Address, Subnet Mask, etc.,
    Anyone have an idea how I can get my desktop back on track?

    Thanks

    Can you paste the output of what "ipconfig /all" gives you? That might
    give us a better idea of what's up.

    Also, what happens if you type "ipconfig /renew" ?
