Just bought a new laptop with sp2 embedded. I am informed that I am connected to my wireless network but I can't get out to the internet/ messenger etc ! I can access the lot on my old kit though... Any ideas where to go as I have been tearing my hair out for the last week or so !!!

Cheers

Are you using a router or are you using pier to pier and using a gateway and what OS is your "old kit" using

yes I am using a Netgear router. All the 'old kit' is the same as the new exept that sp2 was downloaded rather than embedded.

T_H - having a similar problem myself with my Netgear router thingy, guess I should really open a fresh thread but - -

There are times when I can access my Netgear router/modem/hub but not the internet - when I request Connection Status it does say 'connected' but am wondering, does that mean the router is connected to the internet or just my PC connected to the router. I am using this router purely as a wirefree access point; as yet there are no other devices attached to it, just my PC.
