Built my new rig a month ago and everything has been great. I have DSL through AT&T (connected through a LAN, not wireless) using their Modem.
Well, today I received my familes new Laptop, hooked up the wireless router and turned on the laptop. The good news is that it instantly worked with no issues - same was true for our iPhones, the bad news is that when I turned off the PC, then turned it back on, the PC has no connection whatsoever! It said it was disabled and it could not be reinitiated. I have no idea what I've done.
Now, if I turn both computers off, unplug the wireless router and turn on the PC, the PC has a connection again, then I can plug in the wireless router and they both work together - but other than that, it's one or the other which is a total drag.
I'm running XP Home on the PC, Vista Home on the Laptop.
Can anyone explain what's going on and a solution? I couldn't find anything in google and I can only assume it's a router / modem setting.
I appreciate any help!
