    DG834G 2 year old Mesh XP PC. When I set up and operate the router
    with my laptop everything is fine. I can't get the PC to talk to the
    router ip but the 10/100 Ethernet says I'm connected, there is a
    second connection in control pannel called Internet Connection. This
    reports a connection at 1.2mb/s which is exactly the speed I am
    getting down from the isp (talk talk) on the laptop. This is the first
    attempt to connect to this PC's ethernet port and very frustrating as
    everything checks out OK except no internet or email connectivity.

    Anybody any ideas what I could try next?

    Is it using DHCP? Are you getting an IP? Can you ping the router?
    IPCONFIG /ALL and, in a cmd window, netstat -r would be helpful.

    Check username and password is OK on the router, the router would show a
    DSL connection but if the log on details are wrong then it would show
    'No Internet'.

    Apologies, didn't realise it connected OK with a different PC.

    It sounds like a DHCP problem which the other poster mentioned.

    Do you know what local network addresses the router dishes out, probably and upwards.

    If from the command line you type ipconfig /all it will tell you the
    address assigned to your network card.

    There is a hardware fault with the ethernet port on the mesh pc.
    Fitting a pci nic solved the problem.

    Thanks all

    That's good, I had a cable problem once, but only found it to be the
    cable after I had checked modem, filters and BT sockets.
