    Try power cycling your router

    Try disabling DHCP at the router and setting the IP and DNS server manually on each device. Alternatively, if you want to use DHCP, then check if the IP and DNS server isn't manually configured for the computer you're having problems with.

    100% agree with Rage_3K_Moiz, but just to cover all situations i'd point out it's easy to add exceptions by MAC address so those machine do want you want different then policy applied to others. So, for example, if you want the router to be a DHCP server and resonsible for 100% LAN ip assignments you also need review all client side settings are consisent for same

    was a Trojan that Norton could not remove
    had to re- install OS
    symantec wanted like 60.00 to run a scan and fix
    brand new Internet security no lapse in updates or coverage

    anyone have an opinion on a competent Internet security

    have used Norton since 2005 crazy people
    it should have stopped it in the first place
    installed windows live one care trial as suggested by hp customer service shows clean also
    if 2009 Internet security brand new didn't catch it they shouldn't charge
    i even paid for use on 5 computers not a download 2005 6 7 8 9
    i feel like an ***** now for purchasing for another year
    each time i installed booted from disk let it run scan then made sure updates are current
    then run full scan again

    now I'm missing file hkey-user from registry
    screen freezes up and will only display colors on desktop no pictures

    restore disc wont let me clean install says missing a file
    had to install os then choose to repair (not recovery console)
    no go
    guess its time to purchase a new xp disc
    don't know how else to fix
    did get connection going had to manually assign ip and all
    reinstall fixed that now can automatically detect settings
    but still have the other problems
    thank you guys your always a life saver
    hope you had a merry Christmas

    NOD32 is a far better pay AV than Norton, and the best out there IMO.
