    Im settin up a new laptop and have installed a wireless card. I get the correct ip dns etc which I see in the status and ipconfig /all, but browsing is not available. If I plug a net cable into it I surf/ping just fine. I am sure there's some security settigns in XP Pro that I havent figured out yet and would appreciate any help.

    If you have both a wireless and wired network card in your PC, I would try deactivating the wired card.

    Maybe windows if trying to access the internet through the wired card, wich isn't connected to a cable at the time.

    I have the opposite problem. After installing the software (Mobile connection manager and Fourelle Venturi) for a Verizon wireless network card, the computer will not connect to the Internet through my LAN. The LAN connection has been tested to be working and the 2 other computers on the LAN have no problems. The icon is blinking and the connection status in enabled. I have heard that this is a known problem with XP but have not found a solution. Any ideas would be appreciated.
