My dad's computer for some reason won't connect to the internet anymore, it's has Window's XP home, and it runs on wireless internet from our router in my room, but for some reason it won't connect, even though it shows full signal, I am able to ping his ip and get onto his shared files but that's it, I even plugged a cat 5 cable into it just to see if that would work but that didn't do anything please help!

can you ping other machines from it?
can you access shares from your machine?
if you ipconfig from a command line, is the default gateway correct?
{edit}
if everthing checks out download firefox from the computer that can access the net and install it to the one that can't

xx66stangxx, I experienced this problem recently. It happened after I tried to uninstall some Norton AV programs. To solve, I reinstalled the latest version of the wireless card's drivers. You can find out all the info about your wireless card by going to Start, right click My Computer, Properties, Hardware, Device Manager, and click Network Adapters. Look for the name of your wireless card, like IntelPRO etc. Then go to that manufacturer's website, download and install the current driver for your wireless card, and reboot. This worked for me.

no I can't ping other machines from it because for some reason I have never been able to do ipconfig, pinging anything from the command prompt, on his machine, I have already installed firefox on his comp. and I will try uninstalling Nortons, and will look at the drivers, thanks

what does it say when you do Ipconfig?
if it tells you that no adapters are bound to dhcp, we have found the problem.
if it's another error, what is it?

when I try ipconfig, ping 192.168....., it says not recognized as a internal or external command, which is very odd because that computer is the only one I have had say that to me

can you do the following :

START RUN type cmd You will see a black box. After the prompt you type
ping www.google.com it should come back with a result in ms(miliseconds)

If that doesnot work try the following : ( in that same box)

ipconfig /flushdns. If that doesn't work please do :

ipconfig /all

and post the results here.
