Having problems with laptop internet connection

  mary86 17:06 20 Sep 2007

I got my laptop back from being repaired and I've installed the network card I got for it and thats detected the router on the main computer and everything seems ok their. But when I try to go on Internet explorer, i get an error message saying, 'Forbidden

You were denied access because:

Access denied by access control list.'

How do i fix this problem?

You will need to use the WEP key. On the lappy right click the monitor icons in the taskbar and select 'view available networks' Select your network and click connect. This should promt you to enter the secure key which is often found on the router lable. Type it in as you see it and then click connect...

PS> If this does not work you will need to reset-up the main computer to your ISP
