    Hi guys,

    You've helped me out a couple of times before, so I'll try again.

    I recently bought a broadband wireless router, which I set up at home in connection with my laptop, and this works perfectly, no problems.

    My desktop PC has just been fixed, so I decided I wanted to get this online too. So, I bought an arianet wireless USB card for my desktop so that it could access this wireless network that I had already set up.

    After a while messing around with various settings, I have got my desktop to recognise this wireless network, and it has managed to connect to this network also when I select it. However, when it says it is connected to the wireless network, I can't access the internet, and I'm wondering why?

    What things do I need to check on either my laptop or my desktop to enable my desktop PC to also get online?

    Thanks,

    Sam

    Check your internet connection. That menu is inside Internet options "on the control panel."
    See if your dsl connection is set to never dial a connection...

    next go to the command prompt.... START>RUN>type cmd > then type ipconfig/all

    you should see your IP address if you have a connection.......then type... ping "your IP"

    and see if it works....
