my problem is this, all the above have wired connections, with static ip`s , dboxs and media cener an xbox through a network switch downstairs, they USED to go into a router (wired belkin type, which also connected to my cable modem ) everything was fine everthing talked to each other and had net access, but a xmas my father in law got my son a lptop with wifi on it, and my mate had a dlink wireless router (4 port ) so i changed the router, set it up static ip ( all my system needs to be static ) and setup the laptop, all fine execept that my home pc upstairs ( this one ime on now ) is not part of the network anymore, also in the network connections (xp) it has the network card listed but also a internet connection icon saying its a gateway, now i have never set this up to a gateway and dont know why its come up, i have deleted the network connection and he gateway, but when i reinstall they both come back, everything else on the network works fine and all talks to eachother except for this home pc,, can anyone help..
