Ok, so: people who are good at computers. If I can get my Mac online via wireless (so I know my connection is working), and I can connect my PC laptop to the router with an ethernet cable and have it showing up as a working connection, then why would I not be able to get to any webpages with the PC? It's assigned the PC an IP address, and all the troubleshooting and repair bits say that it's working fine. But I cannot get to any webpages, so clearly it isn't. Help! It all worked pretty easily on the Mac; on the PC I have installed drivers from the CD, and done all kinds of arcane things, but still nothing. :(
NB this is obviously very urgent and dire because I neeeeeed to patch a game (the only reason I still have the PC being that I want to play games, although soon it is going to be too old and crap to take any more, and I will have to have a new solution (or just re-play Baldur's Gate until I die).
Never mind! I R JEENYUS.
