hi folks

i am having a problem connecting to my wireless network
i have a pc that i installed my netgear wireless router on. my pc has no wireless on it so i connect to the net on this by using the wire.
i bought a laptop and tried to set up wireless on my router so that i can go on net with my laptop wirelessly (it won't work)

i took the laptop to friends house and browsed for his wireless network, found it and connected to the net no problem.
with my network it says i am connected but when i try and browse i cannot. it says limited or no connectivity.
surely it can't be laptop settings as friends network is easy to browse the net.

cheers.
any help will be appreciated

Bring up a Command Prompt box on your wire-connected PC (start -> run -> cmd). Type in ipconfig /all and find out what the default gateway address is. Now open your web browser and try to access http://<that address>. That will probably give you the configuration page of your Netgear

Strange, I'm also not sure why it shows a PPP WAN adapter here. I'm beginning to have other doubts. On the same (start -> run -> cmd) type:

[code:1]
ping 192.168.0.1
[/code:1]

What does it show you ?
