Thank you very much in advance,
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.
