I'm having a problem connecting my PC (2005 Dell, WinXP) to the internet. I have two laptops, one is an HP (WinXP), and the other is a Toshiba (Win7). Both the laptops can get online wirelessly, but the PC, which is directly connected to the router, says it limited or no connectivity. So far, I have tried resetting the router, unplugging the router for 30 seconds and plugging it back in, and changing the IP address on the PC. None of that worked. I turned off the wireless settings on one of the laptops and plugged the router in. It said the same thing when it was plugged into the PC, limited or no connectivity. I am positive I am on my network when the laptops hooked up wirelessly. I just don't know if it's the router that's the problem because if it was, how am I connecting to it wirelessly? It's a Verizon router.
Anyway, I hope I am on the right forum spot for this. Could it be the network card in the Dell? I dunno. If no one knows, don't sweat it, I can call Verizon, I just don't feel like being on the phone with those people. My next step was to buy a new router and try that. Or just get a wireless card for the PC and connect through that, but that would just bandage the problem. I don't even know if I know what I am talking about.
Thanks in advanced
If you need more info, I will try and get it. I dunno if this is the serial number to the router, but here it is I think CSJE9272106265
