    Getting to the point, I have a network where my computer is connected via ethernet to router, and then 4 computers connected to router via wireless connection. I have come to the conclusion that the Internet is fine since my computer doesn't have any problem connecting and opening web pages. But the other computers have an interesting problem connecting. The wirelss icon in the quick launch tool bar shows connected, but when I open up iexplorer it will not open ANY webpages. Since this could be many things I don't know where to start, but here are some things I tried:

    I thought it would be pointless but I tried restarting computers at one time, and resetting the router another time and neither worked.

    I am running Utorrent on my computer and in the past it somehow has interfered with my web page viewing despite the fact it was not downloading or uploading anywhere near max, so I thought that maybe had something to do with it, given my deduction I closed Utorrent and then tried to connect, that did nothing.

    Thanks for any and all help provided to me.

    Do you have a firewall active on these wireless computers? I've seen it where a firewall has interfered with connection like this.
