    The icon in the systray on my sons PC says there is an excellent connection
    and it is connected, but neither Internet Explorer or Windows Medie Player
    can connect to the Internet. I would appreciate any suggestions as to what
    to do.

    It had been working fine before he plugged an ethernet cable from his XBox
    into his PC and used that for the Internet. Now he's unplugged it the
    internet doesn't work despite the systray windows icon and belkin icon
    saying there is an excellent connection. Using Windows XP and a Belkin USB
    Wireless network adapter and a Draytek Vigo 2600Gi Router.

    Right click my computer -> properties -> hardware -> device manager

    Right click the wired ethernet adator and select disable. Ensure the
    wireless adaptor is enabled.

    Please post the ipconfig statistics and the routing table. Perhaps
    that might shed some light.

    To do this get to a command prompt and type

    ipconfig /all > c:\temp1.txt
    route print > c:\temp2.txt

    Then cut'n'paste the contents of temp1.txt and temp2.txt with notepad.
