Wireless detected but cannot use MSN/explorer?

  nikkieveritt 21:05 22 Aug 2007

I have a laptop computer and i use to connect to my wireless internet automatically when i booted up, but for last couple of months i either get a connection but cannot use explorer or msn or it says there is a limited coverage to my connection still cannot use internet functions?

When i plug in the ethernet cable i can use the internet fine, however when when i pull the cable out the internet stops working again.

I dont really know what to do as i have checked the settings however i dont really know what im checking for. Ive gone to wireless zero configuration and restarted this but still no luck.
If anybody can help me with my situation i will be everso grateful. It is very unfortunate because i have to use the web to study and using the ethernet is becoming annoying, i would just like my wireless to come on automatically like it use to without wiring up!

If any firewalls are installed, uninstall them.

This includes Zone Alarm, Sygate, Kerio, Norton Internet Security, Zero Knowledge Freedom, Cisco VPN Client, F-Secure, McAfee Firewall, Trend Micro, Comodo, PC Tools Firewall Plus etc.

In many cases, disabling the firewall is not enough; you have to actually uninstall it.

Do not install or re-install the firewall until after you have the network functioning properly
