Specs: windows xp sp 3, pen. dual cpu T3400/4gb ram
I have toshiba satellite L300, shows im connected, but browsers wont open any sites. tried firefox and ie, the internet works, other comps connect fine, then i plugged it in to router, shows as connected, but same problem, wont open any websites. I tried adding default gateway to the dns, but it didnt help.
any ideas what to try next? I also did a malware scan and all good there.
thanks.

Sometimes a simple restart of Windows will fix annoyances like that.

reboot the router. Sounds like it lost its internet connection.
