hey guyz i have a laptop which is not browsing. when i connect the lan cable it does not browse although it shows local area connection it shows the status that it is connected. but does not receive (RX).
so i tried to set up new connection but at the end of the process i dont know why it then create a network bridge when i did not say it should do so. what do i do in this case?
the laptop is infected by worms it has eaten up the folder options and em i suspect that is what is causing it.

are you able to ping the default Gateway.....
are you able to ping any of the systems in the LAN...?
are you using the shared internet connection?
Is Dial-up connection is shared to your laptop or are you using any leased line?
READ CAREFULLY..THIS IS HOW IT IS......

i have a DI-524 wireless router right, the wireless router is connected to the indoor unit (using a cross over cable or x-over cable) then the hub is connected to the wireless router then systems now connect to the hub.
first is there a problem with this connection?
therefore the wireless router serves as a server and then distributes ip addresses to all the other systems (Client / Server connection).
and a point of note some laptops use the cable and it browses while others like the one i just connected dont browse.
setup looks fine to me
make sure whatever you are using on your laptop to connect to the router, be it a wireless card or a lan cable via the hub, has DHCP enabled on it, i.e if it is a lan cable, then the nic should have dhcp enabled, if it is the wireless card make sure dhcp is enabled on it as well.
i will give dt a try....
