  1. My fiance has a laptop that is giving me such a hard time. I recently purchased a motorla cable modem to run with my internet. Works wonders with my gaming needs along with a Linkys wired/wireless router. She uses a Belkin USB Wireless thing for her laptop and it states that it has connected and signal strenght is excelent. But every time I open IE it does not find the site. I have now even plugged it directly to the router and it shows a connection to the router but no internet....

    ANY IDEAS???

    Try using the connection manager with IE letting it know that her connection has changed to a LAN.

    Have thought of that. Also tried ipconfig /all and release and renew. No avail.
