    DSL troubles continue sfter full Restore

    Thanks to everyone helping me in my laptop-DSL journey.
    I have ran total system restore and now i am starting anew.
    DSL on main PC is working fine. I am able to login to IE.
    My PC Wireless card NETGEAR says Connected to a router but IE is showing Can't find server or Page is not found.
    I am struggling with it for 2 days now.
    Now I am thinking maybe I have to have some Internet installed like basic and then get DSL as upgrade on top?
    It seems weird that card can see router and IE can't read it.

    I was recommended to get Panda software to control everything at once. Any pro/cons?

    Thanks so much

    I think there are two questions here:

    (1) Connecting the second computer through the wireless router to the Internet -- not directly security-realted

    (2) Security suite choice (e.g., Panda vs. other)

    Since your questions seem to relate mostly to the networking, I'm going to move this post to the Networking board. However, if you also want to change your security suite, please start a fresh thread in (the security) forum, e.g., for opinions of Panda users (I can't recall seeing many posts on Panda over the years).

    Is the Firewall on the desktop blocking access from the laptop?

    HINT - it ought to be unless you have specifically configured it to allow Network access from the Laptop.

    Without knowing what type of Firewall you are using it's hard to know how it should be set up.

    Can you make network connections (share folders and the printer) between the desktop and laptop?
