I encountered a strange problem yesterday on my Laptop. I use wireless internet on it (it is an internal card for wireless access) I have never had any problems connecting before until yesterday. I turned on the wireless and it was looking for my connection and then it found it, but when I went to run IE7 (beta) it said I was not connected, no sites would respond (they immediately said I was not connected; they didn't try to load) I also tried Outlook Express, AOL IM, and Firefox but they all said there was no internet connection. I tried repairing the wireless access, rebooting, turning the wireless on and off, reconnecting, but nothing worked. My wireless center said I was connected, every time, but no internet application worked at all.

Does anyone have any thoughts on this??

Thanks in advance.
