Ok, this is just bizarre.

I have a single wifi access point in my house. My main computer, running Win7 Ultimate x64, can't seem to get to anywhere on the internet. I can ping my router, I can access my printer's setup web page, but I can't access the router's administration page.

A Windows Virtual PC VM (running Win 7 Ultimate x86) on this same physical machine, can get to the internet just fine. It can't get to my router's administration page, but it gets everywhere else ok.

Do I have goblins?

This question came from our site for professional system and network administrators.

    
Ended up completely resetting the router to factory settings, turning off DHCP, setting up everything by hand. Seems to be working...for now. :/ –  Jonas Sep 12 '10 at 5:10

Perhaps the Gateway is wrong/missing in the x64 version? You could do ipconfig /all on both versions.

Regarding the router's administration page, perhaps it is set to not allow administration by wireless - try a direct connection by wire.

Sounds like the internet gateway IP is wrong. I do this on purpose sometimes (as well as by accident :-)

I ended up eventually buying a new router. I chalk this one up to the oddities of the Linksys WRT110. :)
