Okay, I am not quite sure what is going on here, so maybe you will be able to help me! My friend has a laptop which we are having a problem getting to connect to the Internet. It all began with him buying a 802.11g card and trying to connect to the library's wifi unsuccessfully. Then he came over to my house and tried to connect to our wifi network (I gave him the wep key and what not) and that didn't work. Then, we connected his computer via crossover cable to one of my computers on the network. I was able to exchange files with him, but he still couldn't connect to the internet, even though the computer he was connected to could! We went downstairs and I plugged him directly into the router, and still nothing. He left before I could try safemode with networking, which is my only other idea. I have played with settings and run the Windows Setup Wizard for networks to no avail. It can connect to the network, but there is just no internet. Could it be a virus? Help!
