Angry Computer connected to wireless network, but browser won't load anything
My laptop (Dell Latitude D600, Windows XP) is connected to the internet with very good signal strength, but none of the browsers will load anything (IE, FF, or Safari.) AVG won't update, can't get onto any online video games, etc..,

I have tried two different wireless networks, so the ISP is not the problem. I am currently using a library computer, which is connected to their network (so is my laptop... still won't load anything)

I have released and renewed the IP, restored the internet options to default... still nothing.

I am fully prepared to run ping tests and post the results. I know how, I just don't know what the results mean! haha

What can I do? Please help!

With one pc connected to the router, Click on Start . . Run . . type CMD

At the > prompt type type the following command: IPCONFIG /ALL

Note that there is a space before the /ALL, but there is NOT a space after the / in the following command.

Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter. Come back here and Paste the results in a message.

If you are on a machine with no network connection, use a floppy, USB disk, or a CD-RW disk to transfer a text file with the information to allow pasting it here.
