    Hello,

    I have just replaced an ADSL router/modem for a friend - using a
    Belkin F5D7633 uk4A.

    A PC with a wired connection to the router and one laptop connect fine
    with the router and the Internet - the other laptop does not.

    Its OS is XP/Media Centre. Although I can ping a web site on the
    Internet from this laptop, I cannot get to this site using Internet
    Explorer (v6). Do not even get an error message.

    The icon shows that the wireless connection is present.

    I have tried stopping both the Windows XP firewall and the another one
    which is on the PC but neither allows IE to work.

    Any suggestions please?!

    Cheers

    Geoff

    .... so "ping" can get to the internet but Internet Explorer can't...
    Try this:
    From Internet Explorer:
    Tools -> Internet Options --> "Connections" Tab ->
    "LAN Settings" button --> Make sure nothing is checked.

    HTH,
    John

  4. Hi!I'm far away from a "computer specialist",but I think I can help
    you,because not so long ago we had the same problem at home.Check which one
    of the existing connections in the host computer is shared.The shared
    connection should be the dialer,that connects you to the internet.When you
    share the right connection,in it's settings mark the name of the home
    wireless connection.That's it or at least this helped me at home.I wasn't
    sharing the right connection :-(((

    Maria,

    I am not sharing connections as far as I know! There is an ADSL
    modem/router which has 1 desktop PC hard wired to it and that PC can
    access the Internet.

    There is a laptop which connects OK to the Internet via the ADSL
    modem/router via a wireless connection.

    It is the second laptop which fails to connect via wireless to the
    Internet when using Internet Explorer - even though I can ping an
    outside web site.

    Cheers,

    Geoff

    Jack - many thanks for the link - some really useful info.

    By the way you have made me realize that I wrongly described the
    friend's situation - the PC which will not connect by wireless is a
    new Dell desktop not a laptop.

    On this machine I can ping web sites on the Internet but not see them
    in the browser. Plus the browser (IE v6) doesn't even come up with an
    error message.

    Cheers

    Geoff

    Is your laptop gets IP and DNS from wireless router?.If yes try to ping any site not ip address. If you able to ping the site then check for Internet explorer settings or Install Firefox browser and try.Try out by asigning DNS address,
