Edit: Sorry for bad title! Meant to include ''iPad2'' and only say wifi once. Cannot edit.

I have read and followed the tutorial for my ex-girlfriend's i-pad. Configured new D-link N-300 router for her PC (plugs into router via ethernet cable and can access internet).
iPad detects router network and prompts for password.
iPad connects to router with full strength.
Safari cannot open an internet page due to no internet connectivity. Meanwhile, PC can surf the net.

I have little knowledge of network config...

Computer (laptop) is a dell studio xps 1645 running win7 x64

This could be an iPad problem or a router problem.

Disconnect your PC from the router and connect it via WiFi. Can it access the Internet now?
