For the past two months I have had no problems with our home network. We have 4 computers that we use, though usually only two on any steady basis. But all 4 have worked fine. they are all used within a 25 x 25 foot room. The modem with built in wireless router is an Actiontec unit and the ISP is Verizon DSL.
This morning the internet simply failed to connect. Upon pulling up Network Connections there was indeed a connection stated with good signal. everything looking as it normally does. Modem had all the lights on POWER-DSL-INTERNET were all lit as was wireless.
Computers are two desktops and two notebooks. All running XP.
Now, I had chalked it up to verizon line trouble initially. But then I find my 2nd desktop works just fine. But my Dell Precision 670 wrokstation is still not able to pull up internet, the Dell M90 notebook can't either nor can the HP notebook. But for whatever reason the Compaq desktop can. They all are wireless only connections.
Now, if one of them is working,,,, how can three others not be?? that obviously means that the modem is getting DSL service fine and feeding it to the Compaq qithout issue. And the notebooks can be sitting right next to the router and still not pull a thing. It's not a matter of signal strength.
the three computers not getting internet All say they are properly connected to the router and appropriate network.
Anyone have a clue what this could be??? thanks
