Hi m8's

Hope someone can be kind enough to offer advice this morning. I am typing this quietly as Dutcho will still be in the land of NOD getting his beauty sleep!

Started up PC and Laptop this morning and found that whereas the Internet worked great on the laptop via Wireless I cannot get Internet on the PC. This is what I have tried:-

Re-boot PC
Unplugged and re-plugged ethernet cable - re-booted PC
Changed ethernet cable for one that worked OK on lap top - re-booted PC
Unistalled ethernet through Hardware Device Manager and rebooted PC (recognised and re-installed and reports working fine)
Re booted Modem (even though Lap top was working OK) Re-booted PC
Still cannot access Internet on PC

And as my wife uses it and we are off to Spain on Saturday and she has lots to do before then I am getting it in the neck.

Any ideas gratefully received.

cheers

Hi

I have just recalled to access router is 192.168.0.1 but then it askes for username and password - not a clue!

So I do not think that is much help unless there is a way to find out what it is.

Now it is a long long time since Dutcho slept near me!

But as he still maintains my computer and used to maintain my cars before I got proper ones I keep in with him and try not to upset him, anyway his wife would hit me if I did, I am scared of her.

If you are reading this Diane - you are the best daughter-in-law that I have!!!!
