when i switch my laptop on it connects to the wireless router ok but i cant connect to the internet. i have a D link DL-524 AirPlus G 802.11g/2.4GHz wireless router with a D link DWL-G122 USB stick.
Anyone got any thoughts on this??

Have you enabled your laptops USB sticks DHCP to automatically get an address from the router?

Have you selected 'Infra-structure' mode rather than 'ad-hoc' mode?

Have you enabled WEP or WPA encryption?

Are you using the XP WiFi Manager? You can't use a mixture of the DLink WiFi Utility and the XP one. Use the XP one and delete the Dlink Utility.
