    Hi,

    When I ping 192.168.15.1, the computer tries to ping 192.168.0.1 (which is unreachable). This is using a vonage wireless g router. The connection strength is 70% and quality 90%. I connect fine through the laptop, and ipconfig and arp pull up the same info (except for the ip address, and I hope one of you has run into this and has olution.


    Here are the results from cmd research:
    C:\Documents and Settings\Jimmy>ping 192.168.15.1

    figured it out

    my VPN connection was dynamically changing the ip address to pretend I was at work. I just put the DNS entries in manually, and I'm online!
