Local area connection and wireless networking prob

  ado5 14:10 11 Aug 2006

Facts: desktop: apple mac
Laptop: sony vaio Windows xp
Adsl router: Dlink DSL G604T
IPS: Talktalk broadband

Problem: Mac connected via ethernet cable to router: No problem.
Sony viao connected via buit-in wireless adapter. Problem.

Showing in all connections panel is as follows:
Internet Gateway:local area connection: connected on DSL-G604t(Status=614.4kbps?) This is like dial up, but I only have broadband.
Lan: 1394 connection 2 (Connected Firewalled)
Local Area Connection (Network unplugged)
Wireless Network Connection(Connected,Firewalled) Status =24.0MBps.(2MB)

Why have I got two separate connections and also why does Innternet Explorer not work. I have used the fix winsockfix several times and it works for a time but then goes off. The strange thing is I use the laptop at work on the cisco network and I have no problems. Is this other Local area connection causing the problem.
Any help would be appreciated
