On the wireless computer, perform the following steps:
1. Click Start
2. Click Run (if windows XP, if Vista or Win 7 the run is the search bar at the bottom)
3. Type CMD and hit Enter Key
4. In the new window, type IPCONFIG
5. Look at the "Default Gateway", should be an address like: 192.168.1.1
6. type "ping <Default Gateway>" (without quotes and insert your Default gateway address)
7. If you recieve replies (4 of them) then you know your computer is communicating with the router. If not, you need to look into your wireless security/router settings to see why its not communicating.
8. If you do recieve replies, type "ping google.com" and see if you get replies. If so, your computer knows it has internet.
9. Make sure your Internet Explorer isnt trying to use a proxy server. (Open internet explorer, click on TOOLS, and INTERNET OPTIONS. Then go to the Connection Tab and click the LAN SETTINGS button at the bottom. Make sure all options in the new popup box are UNCHECKED. Try going to google.com)
If you still have issues, you might want to reset your Winsock catalog by opening that CMD window and type "netsh reset winsock", then reboot your computer. Let us know what you find out.
