  1. Ok, I've got this problem that started like 5 days ago.

    We've got like 3 computers at home. My auntie owns the other one and my cousins owns the rest. I use my laptop to connect to the net.

    Problem: Other computers connected to the router can't connect to the internet even though it says that they are connected!

    Weird Thing: I use a laptop which works perfectly fine! (using wifi)

    Now how come I can use the internet using my laptop but others can't connect when connected to the router? PLEAS HELP! :)

    P.S sorry if it's not that clear.

    please try pinging the other computers on the network, by pressing Windows Key + R , type cmd , then type ping xxx.xxx.x.x , replace the 'x' with the ip address of one of the computers.
