No wireless after SP2

  1. Warning: I'm a complete novice. I've had a new Sony laptop (K25)
    for about a month. Put in a Netgear WGR614v3 router and our DSL
    (Earthlink's Mindspring)has been working great at our desktop via
    cable and wirelessly to my laptop. After installing SP2 the desktop
    is fine. The laptop is a different matter: At startup I get a message
    down in the taskbar that indicates the following...
    Status: Connected Network: Michael Speed: 54.0Mbps and the signal
    strength meter shows all five bars. But when I try to open Internet
    Explorere or Google or any web page I get that "page cannot be displayed"
    message. I've turned of the MS firewall, gone thru the
    wireless install wizard and generallt followed all the suggestions
    for troubleshooting that are built in to the machine but nothing helps.
    What's a guy to do?

    Do you have WEP or WPA security turned on and the right "key" in each of
    your computers?
