|i have a Dell dimension 4550 Pc Win XP with both an ethernet connection and wireles adaptor connection to my new router.|
Everything worked fine for first 3 weeks.
Last friday i carried out a disk clean up, defragmentation and deleted old music and video files and added a second 256mb ram.
I now have no internet connection from my pc. Other computers, iphones etc can still access my wireless internet connection and through a cable connection.
On my pc under network connections it shows i am connected to the router, this is when i input the Ip address and DNS numbers myself, under (TPI/IP)properties. However if i let the computer select automatically i get no connection to the router. i.e. the static DNS number gives me a router connection, i think! My internet provider says i have to let it automatically select the IP and DNS numebrs however it does connect.
The router is new from Perlico/Ireland and is called ZyEXL? I have turned off security updates and the firewall on the pc.
CMD/ipconfig shows up the IP address i have put in, however if i ping a website, the host server can not be contacted.
i believe the router might be ok as it works with other pcs, the problem is might be afile missing on my pc?? i thought I was careful not to delete anything other than music files etc, so i do not understand what is wrong, i ahev spent an hour on the phone to the internet provider to no avail. my LAN card on the pc is working.
i have reset the router a few times also. and under internet, tools options/connections i have never dial a connection ticked.
any thoughts or advise would be appreciated, thanks
