OS: Win XP Pro SP3 uptodate
Patch Cables: New CATe5 cables work perfectly with Netgear G Router
The wired PC does connect to the router and obtains an IP address.
I even had the email work once, but the browser was never able to access the internet.
I use Firefox 3.6, I can connect to the web interface of the router but not to the internet.
The network status on the PC showed connected with 1Gigabit connection, used Windows Repair Network function but did not help.
I keep wondering, under what circumstances would email work but not the web browser ?
