***I have looked thru the forum and have not been able to find my specific issue, although many seem to have similiar problems***
Hello everyone, I have a brand spanking new Gateway DX-4840 desktop computer. It has an Intel core i5 cpu, 650 @ 3.2Ghz, 6GB ram, 64 bit OS. It still has the 'new computer smell", however, Window 7 is not making it easy to remain.
No apps have been installed except what came on the PC.
DHCP is enabled and I am recieveing an IP address, I can view my network of XP machines fine, I can connect to the company file server and do everything that I should be able to do. I can ping internal computers with no issue.
This computer is in the workgroup as everyone else.
I have tried to uninstall/delete network adaptor/restart and let windows reinstall the software and no success.
This comes down to ZERO internet access.
I appreciate all replies.
BTW, wireless is NOT an option. Only hardwire is. The LAN wire I am using connects all computers flawlessly EXCEPT the Windows 7 desktop.
