I recently changed some Network Settings as well as Settings on my Router. What I was trying to do was switch from WPA to WEP...so that I could access wireless internet on my work laptop.

I am now able to access wireless internet on my work laptop, but I can't access the internet through my personal laptop...either through an ethernet cord or wireless.

Can anyone help???

Try this


TCP/IP stack repair options for use with Windows XP with SP2.

1) Connect the laptop cable to the router, then do this:
2) Start, Run, CMD to open a command prompt.
3) "Reset WINSOCK entries to installation defaults":thumbsup:type) netsh winsock reset catalog
4) "Reset TCP/IP stack to installation defaults": (type) netsh int ip reset reset.log

5) Reboot the machine.

Also make sure the settings are the same on both laptops.

I ran the 2 commands you asked me to, but it didn't work.

I'm not quite sure where you start as far as the settings go?

How about...changing the settings back to what they were?

Forget the wireless aspect...can you connect on both systems using ethernet cable? Seems like a logical place to start when trying to define the problem.

I don't have any wireless experiences, but it seems to me that only you know what settings you changed and you need to go back to Square One (which is to connect with Cat 5), then move on.

Thanks for the replies guys. I got these 2 computers working...not quite how I'd like them to work, but they are working nonetheless.

Now it's on to the third laptop and I've created another post for this one. Link is here--> http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/114929/cant-connect-to-an-unsecured-wireless-network/

Thanks again.

Make sure that your cable is plugged in the computer
