    Cannot connect to my ISP

    I have had my system now for three (3) months and everything was fine. The
    other night I checked my e-mail and shut the system down. When my wife start
    it up and log on we did not have a connection with our ISP. The big red x
    over the network connection. We have tried everything that has been asked of
    us and even check the connect on a Laptop. It works fine. Help!!!!

    What kind of ISP, ie. cable, DSL, dialup, wireless?

    Have you powered off then back on any modems and/or routers you may have?

    Can you connect with other PCs or does just one PC have the problem?

    We can connect the cable network (cat 5) to a laptop. I have powered off/on
    the router with no luck. We have worked with our ISP who can see the laptop
    but not the PC. We have tested the the system on a work network and it works
    fine. We are really lost as to the next step. We cannot run the requested
    system check that Vista ask for as we get an error message "Access denied".
