I use Windows XP, Media edition, Network Magic, a fast desktop HP, Comcast
Cable, A D-Link DI 624 Router and a HP late model HP Pavillion laptop.
In the past all worked fine. The desktop is connected to the DI Link router
and then the computer. I can get to E-mail and Firefox fine.
In the laptop it says on the Network Magic icon in the tray that I am
connected and the speed is 5 bars (it sits only a few feet away from
desktop), but I can not get to E-mail or via IE or Firefox to the Internet.
I have tried to reset the D-link router, have powered both the Cable modem
and Router down, have done a restart, but the laptop (with built-in antenna)
still does not connect, even though it says I AM CONNECTED.
I am asking for advice now, since I have run out of ideas, especially since
it used to run fine for months before.
