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 little icon will get its "halo" to indicate it is connected to that network and it should then get its correct IP address by DHCP from the router.

go into the router settings and tick broadcast ssid....is your network open or shared and you need to make a note of the access key.

what router do you have?

i have a speed touch 576, ive seen alot of problems on site with this modem, and im obviously part of the majoritey that cannot connect wirelessly. ive downloaded the xp sp2 patch from aol and done what they said to do, now it apears that my laptop thinks its connected to the router by saying connected but try to log on to aol or go to a website on explorer and there is no connection there. to configure my router i have to log onto the speedtouch website on explorer via ethernet. ive done this god knows how many times and followed the solutions that people have recomended on other helproom pages to no prevail
