three computers, three phones, and this netbook. We've had the router for months, and never had problems like this before.

Hi Rob, I see, said the blind man.
After composing my last post, when I clicked 'Post Quick Reply' box nothing happened. Just by chance, I noticed I had lost Internet Connection. First I looked at my wired PC, thinking it could be my Outpost Firewall Pro. It tends to block everything if something is waiting for my permission. It was not. PC was connected ok. I rebooted my router and came back to my Netbook, it was still not connected and gave a message that it was trying to connect to an IP Addess already in use. 5 minutes later it re connected on it own and has been ok since.
I know this is not helping you, but have a look here.

Open Network Sharing Center, when 'Identifying' stops flashing, click it. Post what happens.

I can't click on "identifying" at all, as it does not stop flashing. Also, my settings for TCP/IPv4 are identical.

Hi Rob, if it was'nt for bad luck you'd have no luck at all.
Go to Network adapters in device manager, right click them one at a time and select uninstall (Keep the drivers) then reboot your troublesome pc.
If, your still having trouble, it might be your firewall. Is it Windows FW or one you installed.?

Still no dice. I'm using Window's own firewall, and have never installed my own.
