      Have you tried rebooting them? Have you had any updates to your OS?

      Do either of the PCs that do not have internet connectivity show an IP address in the 192.168.0.x range?

      Thanks for the reply but it seems to be working again.

      At first rebooting the PCs didnt work, Restoring the PCs didn't work.
      I did restart the Router aswell
      But this time I turned everything of and unplugged from mains left for 10 mins, put it all back on and Woohoo, all working again.

      Ahhh, the only thing that beats the old 'turn if off and back on again' is the 'turn if off, what ten mintes and then back on again'.
