Sorry guys.
This is probably really basic stuff but it is driving me nuts,

When I turn on my laptop it boots up fine.

Problem I have is when I try to connect to the net.

It's an old IBM T40 if that makes a difference. I'm using a DLink Air DWL-650.

When I log on everything looks fine - appropriate icons in the taskbar.
However, before I can connect to any site, I have to right click and press repair.

I know this must be something really easy to sort but I could do with a wee bit help.

PS This even happens in house when I'm fully connected to my PC.

After you turn it on and before you click on repair, open Device Manager Click on the +'s and look for any yellow exclamation points and tell us what devices they are by
