I've just been hit by this virus and am now unable to connect to the internet. Since this is an old computer, I may just put a new XP on it and give it away to a family member. However, I have recently purchased a new laptop and have connected this to the internet via a Linksys wireless router ( of which the now-infected computer also draws its connection. My question for anyone who can help is that why can't I connect to the internet still with just my laptop ? The wireless connection is down as well as if I connect the laptop directly to the cable modem. What gives ? I've tried shutting both units down, as well as restarting my computer and still no luck. Any ideas or suggestions ?
