    My girlfriends computer has been working fine at her new apartment for the past month, shes connected wirelessly to a router provided by road runner (cable internet). I am currently connected to the same one on my laptop right now and its working fine. 2 Days ago she went onto internet explorer and its not recognizing that shes connected. She can go on things like AIM and windows messenger, but not browse. Shes running windows xp with SP2, I tried the winsock fix but for some reason its not working. any reccomendations? We event tried plugging it into the router.
