I seem to have encountered a strange problem that I'm not sure how to solve. My PC, which is wired to the ADSL wireless router, cannot connect to the internet, but my laptop, which connects to the router wirelessly, can connect to the internet. This is strange becaues up until yesterday both machines were connecting to the internet perfectly.
Des anybody have any ideas how to fix this problem?

Re: ADSL Wireless Router
Firstly you may simply have corrupt cookies preventing your internet connection, so go to tools in internet explorer and select internet options and delete temporary internet files and cookies.
If you are able check that the network card is working by typing your routers ip address in your web browser and look at DHCP clients and see if your problem pc's ip address is shown.
It could simply be that your pc's ip address lease time as ran out, so go to start>run and type ipcongig /flushdns, this should clear the network card settings.
Restart pc and and try connecting again.

Is it wired or wireless ? If it is wired then check the connection between the router and the computer. If it is connected properly then check the IP address on the computer. Make sure that there is no static IP address on the computer. If it is wireless then make sure that it is connected to the wireless network. If it is not connected then you will need to connect to the wireless network. IF you are not sure about the wireless settings then you will need to open the set up page of the router and check the settings.
Make sure your ADSL router has wireless capability or wireless function. Verify that from your Internet Provider. If your ADSL router doesn't have wireless function, you need to buy a separate wireless router then cascade it to your ADSL router, from there your airport must be working fine.
