Make sure you are not binding to as bridge in your network connections. Try disabling everything in your networe connections and then turn the one you want on.

I have a connection to the router. there is something deeper than that wrong. It is computer specific. I don't figure out what it is. Anyone?

Hmmm... I've had a computer's wireless card do the exact same thing. Unfortunately, it was the card that was the culprit. I sent it back to the manufacturer, they sent me a new one, and all was right again.
I wouln't pull my hair out about something that could be out of your control. Go get a CHEAP USB Wireless adapter and see if you can connect properly with it. My computer did the same thing... IP and connected and all, but NO internet. Strangest thing!

|I am so frustrated with this I am ready to go flying with the computer and not come back with it |
Let the machine fly and you stay behind.
Had a similar situation last night: three machines could see each other but could not see the machine with the printer attached.
Rebooted, then the bad machine could see the other three but could not be seen by them.
Rebooted again, same thing. Checked all of the settings on the bad machine but did not change anything.
Magic! Now each machine can see the other.
I've found XP networking very unstable. Occasionally, the network connection on one machine or another will just take a day off -- it just isn't there. After a few reboots it might show up or not, usually have to reestablish it.

Also, keep in mind that for about 15 or 20 minutes, your three computers are trying to elect who's "in charge" of your network. This may be causing the problem. Try rebooting all three of them at the same time.
I'm still leaning towards a bad card myself.

okay is there a way to test the card. It appears to be working so how do I know

Pull a card out of one of the others and put in the "bad" machine, then put the card from the "bad" machine into the other machine.
That should help you test for the problem.

okay i tried pulling the card. but that didn't work so I wiped the drive and reloaded everything. that is the only thing that seemed to work. Don't know what it was but the wireless card works and the rest of the computer works just fine now.
Thanks for all the replys and advice.
