    Router: Netgear WGT624
    Wireless Card: Netgear WG511
    Laptop: Compaq Evo N800v
    OS: Windows XP Pro SP1

    OK, this was working for the past 6 months until yesterday. Company installed a new VPN program.

    The wireless card software says it's connected to the router and has an excellent signal, yet I can't use IE to go to any websites.

    Firewall on the router is disabled.
    Firewall on the laptop is disabled.
    Using WPA security protocol.
    LAN Setting in IE is set to Auto detect.
    TCP/IP Wireless settings: Obtain IP and Obtain DNS are also set to auto.
    Already tried reinstalling the driver for the wireless card with no change.
    Updated the firmware on the router.

    IE works fine if I use a regular LAN cable from the router to the laptop.

    Any ideas what the problem could be with the wireless connection???

    Thanks guys!
