Thanks, Stephen,

I tried both the pings and was unsuccessful.

ping boards.fool.com came back as could not find and ping 199.83.135.4 came back destination host unreachable. Rebooting doesn't help.

Yes, Comcast is my ISP.

I'm assuming that means I have a connectivity issue of some sort, but I'm not sure how or where to research that. I did connect the laptop directly to the modem and ran all the windows updates as well as updating and running MSE, CCleaner and Malwarebytes.

After connecting the desktop back to the router, I had to turn the modem off and on before I could connect to the internet on the desk top. The lap top shows connected to the wireless network connection.

Thanks for anything else you can tell me.
