I have Windows Vista. I just bought a new NetGear router. My computer is Toshilba Satelite. My computer worked great on the old lYNKSYS router. Everyone in the family is connecting wirelessly to the new router. My computer says I am connected down in the right hand corner, but it will not connect to my internet explorer without being plugged into the router? Help, desperate!

we are seeing this type of issue with the Atheros AR5007EG when using security
Log into the router and take off the wireless security and see if it now connects

often by updating the driver it can resolve the issue

you can goto device manager and right click on the adapter and then choose update and allow windows to use winodws update
OR
you can goto the pc manufacturers support website and using your exact model (or if dell TAG number) download the driver from there

did it connect and work ok with no security ?

I suggest trying both ways (if the first way doesn't work) etaf suggested for a driver update. Each way has apparently worked for at least one user.
