I have a windows xp laptop and a few months ago i upgraded from a netgear b
router to a netgear g router to better communicate with my PS3. I also
have a desktop that now rarely gets used but has several gigabytes of files
that i like to access now and then. Well, i finally decided this past
weekend to attempt to get my desktop, with it's old USB wireless b adapter,
hooked up to the network i now have with my G router. Forget that my
efforts attempting that failed, here's my more immediate issue.
In the middle of attempting this, while my desktop was searching for a
wireless connection, my laptop lost all wireless internet access with my
router. My PS3 can still access the internet wirelessly, and while still
wireless my laptop even shows - through the little pop up bubble - that i'm
connected to my network and the signal strength is excellent. I turned my
windows firewall off just to make sure that wasn't the problem, with no
luck. In fact, when i wire connect to my router, as i am now, the internet
I've reset manually my IP address, subnet mask, default gateway and
preferred DNS server to match the settings in my PS3, and i've entered my
wep key 2 or 3 times to make sure it's in there correctly.
Any ideas? Because I'm stumped.
