    I have a windows vista PC and an XP laptop .
    I m using adsl connection for internet . I have directly connected my vista PC through LAN cable to the wireless router for internet access and laptop is connected through wireless on the same router.

    now, whenever i shutdown my wireless on the laptop i am able to surf net on my PC but when both are switched on I am unable to surf net on any of them but the twist is i am able to chat in yahoo messenger and gmail on my laptop but not on my PC when both are switched on.

    while troubleshooting i found that PC and laptop both can ping any website address simultaneously.



    ON LAPTOP ---- can chat thru messenger , can't surf the net, responds to ping .
    ON PC -------- can not chat, can not surf, responds to ping


    ON PC --- connects to internet properly. no problem.

    how can get proper connectivity on both ?
