|I have an XP laptop which used to connect to my modem/router wirelessly fine until I got a virus or two (long story). I have removed the viruses (win32/huer and win32/virut) which removed the userinit.exe program. After this was removed I could not log in, so I did a system restore to before the viruses affected PC. Have done another scan, and all seems to be clean.|
Now the laptop will not connect to the router through wireless or ethernet. I keep getting the auto config IP (192.254.x.x). If I manually set the IP, then it connects (wireless and ethernet), and I can ping the router, but not admin it though the net connection. The MTU appears to be 1472, not sure if thats a problem though.
I have tried another system restore, but says it cannot be restored (in safe mode as well). There was a moment when everything worked (ethernet connected properly, and I could even reach facebook). I took cable out to see if wireless would work, and nada... Now I cant get it to connect again. My brand new vista laptop works fine, so I doubt it is a problem with the router.
Any suggestions on where to look from here would be great as I am stumped.
