Prior to our vacation, my daughter's PC worked fine. When we returned, she can no longer access the internet or her e-mail.

I have a wireless network setup in the house. Her Dell PC indicates that it is connected to the network and has a strong signal. When you click on the IE icon, it does not access her homepage. I tried other sites with the same result. It says "the page can not be displayed".

I tried restoring the PC to a date prior to vacation and still nothing. I ran SpyBot and Ad-Aware and they found nothing.

Any ideas?

Thanks, John

My PC and my laptop are having no problems. I think it was isolated to my daughter's PC only.
