Here's the situation -
I received a Toshiba Satellite laptop and Linksys Wireless Router for Christmas. I set up the router and plugged in my desktop and everything is good to go. When I tried configuring for wireless access so I could surf using my laptop, that's where the problems lie. It worked for like a day and then crapped out and hasn't worked since. Everything is showing good, but I am not able to access the Internet using Internet Explorer. I can ping IP addresses using the laptop but cannot get to those corresponding websites.
Both desktop and laptop have XP Home. I don't have any issues when working with the desktop but cannot get things working with the laptop. When I run the little diagnostic tool on the laptop it says Unable to renew IP address.
I think I've narrowed it down to something with the router. I can ping the router from the laptop but not the laptop from the router. I can also ping the IP for Google from the router but cannot ping any of the network connections set up on this side of the router.
I am not totally computer illiterate but my networking experience is not too great, especially when dealing with wireless networks.
