I have 4 Computers in my house. The main computer is hardwired while the other 3 are wireless... Just recently the hardwired computer won't connect to the internet but all the wireless ones do. What's the problem? Please help. Thank you.

Welcome to Bleeping Computer, ash0403:

I would assume that you are using a router? Is there a light indicating that your computer is connected? -- On the back of your computer, normally there is a light indicating that the network card is active, and another light that flashes indicating network activity. Do you see this? Did you try another network cable? Did you try switching ports on your router? Was anything added/removed/changed on this computer that you can thing of that may have caused this?
Try powering off all of your equipment and turning it back on to see if that makes a difference.

Also, what is the make and model of the router?
