    I have an HP ZE5300 laptop with a built in LAN-Express IEEE 802.11 PCI Adapter. I have been using a Linksys BEFW1154 router for a year or so. My girlfriends PowerBook works fine without a wire but when I try to connect my PC wirelessly, it tells me I'm connected but I can't access webpages. It acts simularly at the library and at friends houses with varing brands of wireless routers.

    Thanks in advance and please try to keep the language simple.

    You need to make sure the wireless card is set to get an IP address automatically. If it set to use DHCP, but is unable to get an address the IP address will appear as a 169.254.x.y address. If this happens, you probably need to make sure the wireless card's drivers are properly installed.
