My Computer Won't Connect to the net (others on network will)

  1. My computer hasn't been able to connect to the internet for 3 days. I have two other computers and a video game system that connected to the same router and they work fine. The computer that doesn't work says it's connected when I check my network settings and when I mouse over the network tab on my desktop. Sometimes I can even get to msn.com, but no other websites, and no other applications installed on my computer can access the internet. Does anyone know what I should do?

    hmm...try resetting the router. turn it off and leave it off for like 5 mins.

    also try going into 'start' then 'connect to' then go to 'show all connnections' then disbale you wireless connection or your lan connection (whichever one you are using). Wait a little bit then 'enable' only the one you are going to use. See if that works.
