I have a Gateway laptop running Windows XP SP3. When I boot my computer, the wireless connections windows says that I am connected to my home network. However, I cannot actually access anything online unless I disconnect and reconnect to my network.

A few months ago, I made some changes to my IP address and DNS server info as I was trying to set up a static IP address for faster connections, based on some online tutorials. This could be the cause of the problem...however, I do use two different networks (two houses), and only one network seems to give me the problem. I have tried resetting my router, the TCP/IP protocol for Windows, and switched between my manual IP settings and "Obtain an IP address automatically," but the issue persists.

Thanks for any help you can give!
