    hum; do you have the wireless router or are you accessing some unknown network?

    NORMALLY; we create the physical network like:
    Code:
    modem--wired--router --wired--system
    and configure the wireless feature SSID and the encryption type (wep/wpa)
    and define OUR OWN passphrase. Then we swap to a network like:
    Code:
    modem--wired--router--(wireless)--system(s)
    and then connect to OUR SSID and enter the passphrase we created ourselves.

    start with the first-wired network. power off the router, wait 1 minute and then
    power it back up.

    test your TCP configuration;
    run->cmd /k ipconfig /all
