Can anyone out there help? I have a wireless network. My laptop is definitiely picking up the wireless network OK but when i open Internet Exporer, it say that the page cannot be displayed. I have gone into the settings of IE and seleceted the "automatically detect settings" in the LAN settings but no success. Any help would be very much appreciated Cheers

Have you actually "Connected" to the wireless network? In other words, have you run the wireless adapter's software, scanned for "Available Wireless Networks", found and highlighted the one that matches your router's SSID (network name) and selected the option to "Connect" to it? Once "Connected", the wireless adapter should get its IP address by DHCP from the router and you should have network and internet access.
There is a difference between the Wireless Network Adapter and Router communicating with a good signal and "Connecting" (as in "logging in") to your Wireless network.
