hi

Hope someone can help. I've set up a BT total Broadband system for my wife's home office (Business Hub-368 with BT2700 Router) I can access the wireless network on my laptop but cannot access the internet. The system works perfectly from the main computer (running XP) and it all checks out. My problem is simply that I cannot access through my laptop. I had this problem before whlist trying to access a hotel wirelss network so the fault lies in my laptop settings I'm sure. what simnple thing have i overlooked? I have a free version of AVG anti-virus running and The windows firewall also on.


Has anyone any ideas?

Thanks
