Desktop won't connect to internet (wired) but wireless laptop does

  1. Just woke up yesterday and desktop won't access the internet. It shows a normal connection but neither IE nor Firefox will display a page. ("Page cannot be displayed")

    Someone on another site suggested trying "netsh winsock reset" which didn't seem to accomplish anything. What can I do to fix this or figure out my problem?

    I should add that I have not had any problems with my laptop connecting wirelessly.
