hi there
i have an external USB wireless stick. i have just signed up to AOL and have activated broadband though only when i have the ethernet cable plugged in. when i unplug it, despite the fact that it says i am connected via wireless to my network, i have no internet. does anyone know how to fix this?
thanks alot

i am actually on a mac OSX - i know this is a pc website but couldnt find anything else. macs have inbuilt firewall and anti-viral stuff apparently...
