      Unhappy Home network: Laptop will connect to the router but internet won't work

      Hi guys

      I've had a home network with my PC (XP) and my Dell laptop (vista) for over a year and it always worked perfectly.

      All of a sudden this week the internet stopped working on the laptop. When I go to the "Network and Sharing Centre" it shows that the laptop actually connects to the router (signal strength excellent and all) but it shows as "unidentified network" and no connection with internet.

      What has gone wrong?

      Unplug the router from the power supply and plug it back in again.
