Question about NetGear : WG111 54 Mbps Wireless USB 2.0 Adapter, RETAIL (DSNGWG111)
Thanks for suggestions, Nick, and thanks for inviting follow-up. Tried all your suggestions, but so far no luck. The problem machine can see files on other networked computers and vice versa, but still no internet. The machine also shows up as an attached device when I access the hub (using the web interface). Any other ideas?
On the machine in question, let's try reaching an external IP address. Go to:
Start > Run > and type CMD (you will get a command prompt)
Then type "ping www.whitehouse.gov" (or a website of your liking - doesn't matter, really). You should get a response back, if you are communicating outside of your LAN. If not, the ping will respond with "no response".
You say you tried all the suggestions, but didn't mention firewalls. What are you running as a firewall? If it isn't the Win Firewall, do you have the Win Firewall disabled?
Also, let's look at this:
Network Connections > right click on Local Area Connection > Properties
highlight Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) > then Properties
Make sure it is set to "Obtain an IP address automatically" and
"Obtain DNS server address automatically".
If they aren't set that way, then do so.
Again, let me know how it goes. The more info I have, and the more possibilities we eliminate (unless one actually fixes it), the closer we are to finding the culprit.
