Laptop cant access internet

I have my pc networked to my laptop. The pc has windows me and is the one that is connected re router to broadband internet.

The laptop is windows 2000. I put a pcmia card in the laptop, an ethernet card in the pc and used a crossover cat5 cable.

I was able to share files and internet, but now, suddenly, I cant access the internet on the laptop, just keep getting 'the page cannot be displayed'.

Any idea's why?

Try right clicking on the network card and selecting repair.

Hi,

Tried that but the only option I had was to refresh, did that and I still have the problem.

Why did you use a crossover cat5 cable. You only need a strait Ethernet cable to connect to router

If it is actually a ROUTER, and not just a broadband MODEM, both PCs should be connected directly to the router and not to each other by crossover cable.

I think NO router is used in here.

Look ICS again in ME, make sure it is enabled. Have you install any firewall software recently?

"Why did you use a crossover cat5 cable. You only need a strait Ethernet cable to connect to router"

"If it is actually a ROUTER, and not just a broadband MODEM, both PCs should be connected directly to the router and not to each other by crossover cable."

Its a BT Voyager 205 ADSL Router. So how do I connect both PC's to the router and if I do this will I still be able to use both machine's on the internet at the same time?

"I think NO router is used in here.

Ok, if thats the case, how do I enable ICS. I have done this in the past on another pc but I cant remember. No, no firewall.

Thanks for all the help!

With a Router Modem you do not even need a Network. Just connect the PC's to Router and it should only need drivers for a wireless PC that's connected. Both can connect at the same time I have two desktops and a Wireless Laptop all will connect and use at the same time on the net

one via Ethernet (lan) port, one via USB port. USB link need driver software installtion.

This is really a silly router becuase almost all good routers have 4 ethernet ports

'USB link need driver software installtion.'

I've connected the laptop via USB, it has asked for driver, may be a silly question, but where do I get driver?
