laptop wirless connection HELP

  brooksby 17:09 10 Aug 2007

I have have a laptop that connects wirlessly to the my router, but since i have had to put recover disks in my laptop the computer will not allow me to view the internet. My wireless card is a belkin one and shows the wireless connections and can connect to mine no probs but when i go to click on internet explorer i just keep getting 'page not available' all the time, yet the status bar shows i am connected.??????

If you have any ideas please tell me

Sounds like something has been reset by the recover process. Check firewall settings.

Can you access a site using just its IP address?
E.g type in to the IE address bar and you should get Google UK.
If this works then your problem is down to your DNS settings in Wireless Connections.
