Now, although the LAN appears to be connected, no web pages can be accessed. The connection works perfectly on my own laptop (I'm using it now).
He has the utility: ConfigFree (Connectivity Doctor) and it shows the LAN is connected and the Ethernet card is working: yet when I open Internet Explorer, the message is: IE cannot display the webpage.
I have reset IE in Tools and also the cable modem by disconnecting and reconnecting everything.
This problem means I cannot load any Windows updates.
Is there a simple solution?
