I have one computer (a laptop) hooked up on a wireless home network (wireless router, dsl modem). I can hook up to a neighbors wireless and get access but my connection no longer works, it will have full bars and then put the warning triangle over it. When I run the windows repair it says its a dns problem but it doesnt fix anything. I can unplug the router and hook up an ethernet cable and it works fine. Now when I am wirelessly connected to my neighbors router my computer shows that it has 2 connections, the belkin router and some unidentified network. I have checked and rechecked everything I can think of and cant figure this out. Its odd because it has worked fine since I purchased the laptop almost a year ago.

Try this. Open a command prompt, Windows Key + R, type cmd and then type the following without the quotes and paste all the results back here, "ipconfig /all". Also check, open IE, click Tools, Internet Options, Connection Tab and then the LAN Tab and in the window that opens make sure that all the check boxes are clear, if not clear them and close IE and re-open IE.


If that didn't worl look at this.
