Okay, there are 2 computers hooked up to a router. One is an older desktop, wired connection. The other is a laptop, wireless connection. At first, neither would connect to the internet. I reset the router, and then the laptop would connect.
But still the desktop won't connect. I tried giving it a static IP, updating the LAN drivers, etc. Sometimes I can get to Google, but nothing else from there either way.
Now, I tried pinging a few different servers, and doing a tracert to a few different servers from each. Obviously, the laptop always got a response. The desktop would, occasionally, but not usually; and it seems to be kind of random when it does or does not.
I'm fairly sure it's not any kind of malware or anything. They have an up-to-date version of Avira Premium on the computer.
So, I'm sitting here, no clue how to fix this. I've reset the router, updated the drivers, tried with DHCP or static IP... nothing will work, except occasionally getting to Google. Any one have any ideas?
