I have got a wireless connection through an access point hardwired to broadband modem through ethernet. Connection is established on all pcs, but cannot access the internet. Any ideas on how to access? Thanks

What operating system are you using?
Have you configured the access point as per start up guide?
What access point is it brand and model number?
Can you connect directly to internet with out using the access point? (this to establish your internet connection is working)....

Generally when you configure a wireless access point first you need to physically connect to one of the computers and configrue the access point so that is can detect the computers settings has this been done?? it appears that as you can see all the other computers but cant access the internet that you will need to congfigure access point correctly.

The one computer that you configured the access point with ,was it able to connect to the internet then ??

Also on each computer have you added the name of the network (ssid) so the wireless card knows to connect to that network?( if you right click on the wireless network icon and "view availble wireless networks" can you see the name of the network ?
