Brand new linksys wireless, Host (Hard wired)has intermittent connectivity. Indicates it is conneted and is working properly.Cannot browse Web. The wireless part works great!
try to plug the Ethernet cord for the Host computer on another Ethernet port on the Linksys router.
have you tried replacing the Ethernet cable that's connecting the Host computer to the linksys router?
check if Host computer can get a response from a website by going to Start>Run, then type CMD on the Run box and click OK. On the black screen, type PING www.yahoo.com then press Enter.. if you get the word reply 4 times, it means the computer is connected to the Internet.
If there's no response from the PING test, it means there's totally no connection.
It's also possible the problem is with the Local Area Network adapter or Ethernet adapter. Try disabling the Ethernet adapter and re-enable it by going to Start>Control Panel>Network Connections, you should see the Local Area Connection, right click on it then select Disable then Enable it again. then observe if you're still experiencing intermittent connection on the Host computer.
and if you have security software, try disabling it temporarily and check the connection again.
and let's make sure the cable or dsl modem is connected to the Internet port on the back of the Linksys router.
