Hey all of you computer savvy people,
I recently setup comcast cable internet at my house. I bought the Linksys WRT54G wireless router. It has been setup and is running great. I have a strong signal, but I'm wired to it. So that part works fine. I then setup the laptop in the house to be on the network; excellent connection works great.
Two down with one to go and I was on a roll; considering I'm new to the whole networking thing.
I wired the last computer, a desktop running XP Home Edition, to the router; as were the instruction to do so. I connected to the internet and everything was going well, I downloaded all the lastest updates for the firewalls and anti-virus software. The last step was to download and run a program off linksys.com to setup the computer to be wireless.
Foolishly before I did the final step I decided to tweak some of the internet options. I noticed on this computer it had a dial-up option setup, MSN, under connections, in Internet options; which was how it previously connected to the internet. I decided that it was not necessary because this was cable internet which was directly plugged into the computer via ethernet and was about to be wireless; so I deleted the dial-up connection option.
Now I cannot connect to the internet at all on the computer. The computer keeps trying to dial-up the connection. I have tried to setup a new network connection, a new dial up connection, and a broadband connection; nothing works. This computer does have a USb wireless adapter attached to it; a 802.11g which is setup on the network.
This is where you computer savvy guys come in, if someone out there has any clues whatsoever please reply and I will try them out.
Thanks as always for the info.
