I've got a problem with a XP home pc connected to a router on a home network. Under the local area connection status everything appears correct. The ip address and gateway are all what they should be, but I can't get any connections to web pages, aim, or anything. The strange thing is the computer recieves an ungodly amount of packets, a lot more than it recieves, which leads me to think there's a worm or virus or something on there. Any ideas suggestions comments or tips?
All the other computers on the router work fine.

Update your anti-virus and run it. If you don't have an anti-virus, try AVG Free anti-virus. You can get it here:
You can download the AVG on a networked system or burn it to CDR and install it.
I've seen that problem, it was to to a virus disabling your browser. And a trojan letting some one use your system.
But it could also be that you've lost your settings. Try setting up the internet connection again with the wizzard.
