I'm connected to a wireless network on my laptop from a router somewhere in the neighbourhood. I was able to access the Internet when I first connected.
Late last week I got into virus trouble.I removed the virus OK and now I can still connect to that wireless network but can't access the internet. None of the web pages are found.
I don't know if my issues are with the virus disruption or I have been 'locked out' by the owner of the router. (It seems odd they would allow me to connect yet block access to the Net).
Now when I run the connection tests in MSN Messenger, I get a message 'Your DNS appears unable to resolve IP addresses', which would make sense why I can't access and web sites. I have tried both hardcoding DNS addresses and my IP, subnet mask and gateway. I think I have tried every permutation and combination but just can't see any web sites.
My question: Is there any way to determine whether I am being locked out? Does it sound like I am?
