Wireless: Connected and Strong Signal, But No Internet

Discussion in 'Wireless Networking' started by Bob and Shauna, Jun 1, 2007.

  1. When I connect to the internet via "local area connection" NVIDIA nForce
    Networking Controller, everything works fine, I connect and IE7 runs fine,
    as do all programs that need to connect to the internet.

    When I connect via "Wireless Network Connection" Realtek RTL8187 Wireless
    802.11g 54Mbps USB 2.0 Network Adapter, may status is "connected" and my
    signal strength is "Very Good", but I can not run IE7 nor anything that
    needs to connect to the internet. The wireless shows me as "connected" but
    it appears something is not working, nothing connects to the internet.

    Any suggestions?

    thanks for your help, Bob

    also had a few regular connection issues indicating limited or no
    connectivity but that was corrected. Anyway the Windows Installer issue was
