You have a signal that's a start- are you associated with an access point? Is it yours?
Check your SSID and WEP encrytion settings.
Check to see if you're getting a DHCP address from the ACcess Point
Check to see if the Access Point is getting an address from your ISP

I am connecting to a public wireless access point network which only requre a SSID. The weird thing is when I added the network, I didn't check WEP box. But when it actually connected to the network, WEP box is automatically checked and I canot change it.

I can get an IP but no DNS address. And also my wired connection doesn't work either. Still Connection is set up but cannot browse internet.

You'll have to contact the provider to see what that issue is.

With no DNS you're going to have a hard time...

It worked before, I didn't know what I did . I must have changed something. My IP address is not assigned by DHCP. It is an automatic private address. I didn't know what it means. I still cannot solve the problem.

I  am connecting to a public network. How do I get info about AP. My wireless card is a built-in IBM high rate mini combo card.

I think the problem is not hardware. It woked great before. I lost both wired and wireless connection now. What should i do?
