I've set up a local area connection between my laptop and desktop using a router to access the internet. I used a wireless card in my laptop for the first time last weekend and had to change my internet protocal to obtain a static IP address in order to make it work. In doing so I messed up my LAN so that everything now crawls at a snail's pace on my laptop. My internet connection DSL connection is very very slow on my laptop only when connected through the router. I am not able to access files on my desktop using my ethernet connection. I reset the Internet Protocal back to obtain a IP address automatically but this doesn't help.
Any advice would be appreciated.
If this is the wrong group please advise me.
