My Windows Vista (32 bit) computer cannot connect to the internet using a cable (wired).

I cannot connect to the internet using a cable (wired). One other computer are connected to the router (EA4500) wired and two (2) laptop connected wireless. Diagnose and repair, give me this statement that I noted below:

Windows confirmed that "Primary DNS Server" is currently online, but is not responding to connection attempts at this time.

This usually mean that a firewall is running somewhere beteewn the computers and is blocking "domain". Windows has confirmed that Windows Firewall on this computer is correctly configured to allow this connection. However, a remote firewall might be blocking your connection.

The following policy might need to be adjusted to allow Windows to connect:

Policy Provider: McAfee Inc.

If the policy provider identified is Windows Firewall, click for information about adjusting Windows Firewall settings. If a different policy provider has been identified, check the provider's documentation on how to adjust the policy settings.

Can anyone help me.

Thank you,

Reinstall your McAfee protection software and check the difference.
