      Wirless connection is working but Desktop ethernet is not!!!

      Hi frds,

      I can connect to internet through my wireless laptop and wireless WLAN adaptor on my pc but when i try to connect through ethernet cable on my desktop it gives Limited or no connectivity error message.

      I am not a IT person so please explain me in english. I called SKY customer service this evening regarding this. The guy on the fone tried different things but it did not work till call droped and i did not bother to call again. He did not seems to understand the problem and just wasted my half an hour in general things like checking my explorer settings etc.

      I am not sure when and why this problem happened ( I did not bother since i was using internet through Wireless card but since it is USB card and kids always pull this out and speed is also slow in this way). It was working fine one day and next time it came with this error message. I used XBOX live during that period could it be because of that?

      some time when I used to use my laptop and pc together it gave error message IP address confict on PC.

      Can anybody please help me. I will be very grateful.

      Cheers

      Snap.

      I might add that I am less than happy with the whole experience, what with constant wireless dropouts as well.
