I have a desktop and a laptop both !

And a BSNL Teracom modem for both.

Well I only use 1 Ethernet cable for both the Desktop and the Laptop and connect it to the desired device!!.

The problem is that when I connect the cable to the DESKTOP, it shows "No Internet Access"

but when connected to the laptop, it shows "INTERNET ACCESS" and I can browse and download everything.

Question is that what is the problem and how to sort it out ?

probably your IP settings are screwed up.. check the IP settings in your laptop and replicate it in your desktop.. this should fix the problem.

:) ^^ Thanks bro, I had some doomed DNS Server entered in the respective field which I forgot. :p
POSTING FROM DESKTOP :)
Remembered it and then saw your message, switched it to "Obtain DNS Server Address automatically" and Lo !, DONE !!

Thanks :)
