I have 2 laptops and a desktop on my home network, all plugged into the router. The 2 laptops connect to the network and internet. The desktop shows "connected", is able to ping the router but cannot connect to the internet. All are using XP home sp2. The desktop was just introduced to the existing laptop network. I have swapped the router, cable, and ethernet card for grins (i am tech enough to have had some of each laying around). Clearly it's a settings problem. Dynamic IP address. /ipconfig indicates same gateway as laptops. ("192.168.0.1") Worked perfectly on a previous network. Any help would be greatly appreciated, I am at my wits end.
