  1. Hi-
    I have comcast cable internet - with two laptops wirelessly connected.
    I have a great connection - the one laptop connects and works great.
    I have had both running on the connection for months with no problems.
    NOW, laptop #2 (which is newer) has a great connection - but I cannot
    use the internet. It is wierd - I have a the connection to my network - but
    the internet wont work in it -
    any help?

    Try this: Unplug your power source to your wireless router and then reconnect said power. Often the only thing needed is for the router to reset.

    It could be your wireless card. Did you check device manager or hardware tab in your Properties to see if a) it is recognized and/or working properly?
