    I use a Belkin Modem Router. My house has three floors, with a computer on each one, plus two laptops. I have the laptops connected wirelessly, but the main computer is connected to a homeplug. The modem/router is on the ground floor. I use the Homeplugs because of the difficulty getting a good signal at the top of the house. I have not set up a network, but I know the router and homeplugs could achieve this.

    check firewall settings on router for http and port 80 traffiic allowed inbound and outbound on an any/any basis

    try going start>Run>CMD

    type: ipconfig /release
    press enter
    type: ipconfig /renew
    press enter

    the ping should also give us some dns info back, if it resolves then it should be ok to browse/. but run an nslookup aswell to confirm

    I have had a similar problem where the router was connected but couldn't get on the web. Unplug your router from the electric socket for awhile. That always seems to work for me and also try clearing your browsing history/cookies.

    Hope this helps a little.
