My wireless connection works without any trouble on my Sony laptop, but for some reason I can't get it going on my Compaq.

My Wireless Network Connection connects fine with an "excellent" signal strength. However when I open Internet Explorer, I get "The page cannot be displayed".

My *wired* broadband connection works fine, I have allowed my Wireless Network Connection to share my broadband connection, have set "Never dial a connection" in IE, and have checked "Automatically detect settings" in IE's LAN settings. In fact, I have reviewed all the settings on my Sony and applied them to the Compaq, but it still doesn't work.

I'm not sure what else I can do. Does anyone have any ideas?

If you have wireless security configured on the router, you might disable it as a test.

What operating system is on the Compaq

Can you post the results of running IPCONFIG /ALL on the Compaq

You can do something like

Start / Run / Cmd
IPCONFIG /ALL > C:\ip.txt
notepad C:\ip.txt

Then copy and paste in the results.

Bob, please note that I have another (worse) problem with wireless, detailed here: http://forums.techguy.org/networking/593189-freezes-when-wireless-enabled.html

I don't think I can go any further before that one's solved.

Anyway, thanks for your help. (y)
