Being fairly new to all this im sorry for the simple issue that i need help in.

The simple issue is that i got a simple 2 computer network via x-cross cable from my downstairs pc (host) and my upstairs pc.

However i cannot get internet connection to my computer upstairs. I have cnnectivity (it shows the connected icon in the bottom right) although neither of my web browsers are loading up sites.

i use to have connectivity b4 but after i had installed aanti-virus,tune up utilities and Zone alarm anti spyware i was no longer getting internet access.

More over, i ran the network wizard on this PC (host) however also ran it on the upstairs pc.

Is that the right thing to do?

if not how can i sort out this simple situation?

thanks alot, i hope this is Pnuts to sort out.

Go to Start> Run> cmd> ipconfig /all. Does it show an IP address and a default Gateway IP?
