    We have a new wireless router at my church and I brought my laptop in. The connection managers says I am all connected. I am still an unable to pull up any web pages or anything elses internet related. The router is Linksys and my card is Netgear. Any ideas?

    Make sure the SSID is set to match the name in the router. I believe the Linksys router defaults to LINKSYS. The Netgear adapter probably has a different name in it.

    Did you check to see if WEP is enabled on one side or the other?

    When your software does a survey for available access points, it should tell you if the AP is encrypted.
