I have had no problems before up until a few days ago when my laptop coudlnt get connection anymore. I also notice this happens when my other computer is online, if I turn off the internet on the desktop then the laptop is able to connect.This is also viceversa with my desktop. If i am online with my laptop, I am not able to get connection as well on the desktop.

Thinking it had to be a wireless probelm I also tried connecting with eternet cable, but still failed saying my network cable is ungplugged.

My laptop is windows xp pro pack3 and desktop is windows 7.

wireless router is netgear.

Are you able to log into the router and see the settings? What model number is the router?
