Alright so here is my situation.
I have a computer sitting next to me that refuses to connect to the internet. It has a Dynex DX-E102 PCI network card, to which it is connect to my modem, and the standard motherboard connection which is running a line to this computer.
To make things clear:
Comp 1= host computer, connected to internet and sharing connection with comp 2
Comp 2= client computer, connected through comp 1
However, comp 1's personal internet is not working. Although both network connections are "Connected" (and I have repaired the connection numerous times, all without failure) the internet does not work. Internet explorer cannot load any page, and games as well cannot connect to the internet either.
I don't see why it wont work If i can connect comp 2 to the internet through comp 1.
As well (may be of interest), I cannot file share, or even connect both comps to each other. When trying to access MSHOME (the network) from comp 1, it tells me i do not have access. As well, comp 1 does not even show up on the network when I try to access it from comp 2.
Please help me figure this out as it is extremely frustrating. If an clarity or additional information is needed feel free to ask of course.
