I have a laptop with a wireless network card. I can access the wireless signal at work with no troubles through the Intel Pro wireless software. I have a wired network at home for my 3 desktops and had used a wire to connect my laptop to the router, running cable modem. I recently purchased a Linksys Wireless G access point and ran the set up program on the desktop by the router. I get a strong signal strength shown by the Intel Pro Wireless software but it will not bring any email or internet up. When I look in the system tray there is an icon that has a computor and a yellow ball going back and forth. It says it is "acquiring network address". When it tells me I am connected I still can not get on the internet. What could be wrong. The work wireless I just turned the computer on and it found the signal and worked I had no setup. This is very confusing.
