Have you done anything with the firewall settings?

Try turning off/ pulling the plug on the router and turning on/replugging it.

IP and DNS

by sportguy In reply to Suggestions

Are your IP addresses and DNS server Addresses static or Dynamically assigned.

When you are connected to the network giving you the problem, go to a command prompt. Type ipconfig /all. Check if anything shows up under DNS server. If not then maybe try manually defining DNS server addresses.

And you can confirm this be surfing by IP address

This is no longer a problem as I've returned home and all works fine. I have a friend who has the identical problem with her Acer Aspire One. She's back home now and all works well. Thanks for all the suggestions! Nothing worked! Both of us have been to the second network before with no problems. Still confused but We're home and problem gone!!!
Thanks Again!
