Default Please help

My internet connection is Yahoo! SBC/DSL. I have two computers. They both share the same router. My router has three lights: Power, Broadband Link, and Local Network.

I was following this guide to optimize Windows performance. On the fifth page of this guide, it called for disabling services. Around the time I was disabling services beginning with 'E', my Local Network light disappeared. Now I can't go on the internet on my first computer but my second computer works fine. Please help. Thanks in advance.

why did you disable services you didnt know about?
also, why optimize windows from an unknown source?


My computer uses 1.5A-load, .8A-idle, .65A-standby, .05A-turned off on 125V.

How about go back and re-enable the services.

If your equation requires either a complex combination of variables to get the desired result OR you can't seem to get the result regardless of the ain't your variables, it's your constant.
