This seems like a simple one but for the life of me I can't figure out why it would connect. I had some kind of bug that would redirect my google searches and it also wouldn't let me update any software including mcafee, spybot, etc and I have a network between my desktop and my laptop, so I could share directories from my desktop and that too wasn't working. I saw on my laptop where the DNS should be obtained automatically, so I changed that setting and it then began letting me do updates and surf the net without being redirected (after cleaning the virus off). Upon rebooting it wouldn't let me connect to the internet. It keeping trying to acquire network address, but never did. I tried reloading the software that came with the linksys router with no luck. I tried reinstalling drivers for my intel network card, didn't work, uninstalled it completely and reinstalled the latest and it doesn't work, but was does work is the shared folders now.....so what gives, it lets me see the home network but it doesn't let me see the web.....my laptop hasn't had trouble getting the net the entire time. Any tips would be greatly appreciated.
