Hello,

The history of what lead to this will hopefully help.

I tried to get my desktop to recognize my xbox and laptop through a torrent program called VUSE. It wouldnt find my xbox despite all being connected through a main data panel.

I got a bit ambitious and tried to create a network and have everything connect and whatever I did I screwed up my internet connection on my desktop and it wont open any webpages.

My laptop connects fine
My desktop says its connected but wont load pages.

Any suggestions?

Thankyou

Hello,

Try this 1

1)Right click on "Internet Explorer" icon --->click on "Properties" ---> Click on

"Connections" tab--> Click on LAN settings button. In that window uncheck all

the options, if you notice any option selected--->Click on OK---> Click on OK.

If the problem still exists, go to step 2.

2) Make sure that IP address and DNS server was set to obtain the address

automatically .

Click on Start --> Run --> Type ncpa.cpl and press "Enter".

Right click on your wireless network icon ---> Select "Properties" ---> scroll down

and double click on "Internet Protocol[TCP/IP]" . Make sure that

"Obtain IP address automatically" and "Obtain DNS server address automatically"

options are selected.

3) Click on Start --> Run --> Type devmgmt.msc and press "Enter". Type this

command.

ipconfig /all and press enter.

Make sure that IP Address, Subnet Mask, Default Gateway and DNS Servers

are having addresses.

4) Check your firewall.

Hello,
If you are using wireless connections, then check your SID and security key.
If your laptop is working fine then compare the network settings between your laptop & desktop PC and check which setting is changed in your desktop PC.
Good Luck.
