Cisco Aironet 350 connects to AP but not to internet?

Hello,

I am very new to wireless networking so please be easy on me. I have a Cisco Aironet 350 series wireless card in my laptop (Windows 2000). The Cisco Utilities is able to find the access point and connect to it (it says something like "Your 350 series is associated with MAC address XX:XX:XX:XX:etc").

However when I open up Internet Explorer it can't connect to say yahoo.com or anywhere.

I realize this info is sparse and can give more info if necessary.

Thanks!

Hi w3x,
From the machine can you open a DOS prompt and type "ipconfig /all" and post the output here.

Note that above was for "Ethernet adapter local area connection 3" which is my wireless card.
Also above that is WINDOWS 2000 IP CONFIGURATION

Node type is hybrid, IP routing not enabled, WINS proxy not enabled.

192.168.0.1 is the IP address of your internet router?
Are the DNS server IP address(s) correct?

As it turns out they're not, the DNS servers coming up are the ones used to log on at work (I usually use this laptop for work with LEAP authentication). I'm trying to "Make a New Connection" inn "network and dial-up connections" in Windows 2000 but once I click on "Finish" no new connection appears (I choose "Dial-up to the internet">"I want to connect through LAN").

What I mean by the above is I want to keep my "Local Area Connection 3" settings with the work DNS Servers and such and create a new one for home use, if that is possible.

You wouldn't happen to have your Internet Explorer configured to use a Proxy Server?  

Tools>>Internet Options>>Connections>>Lan Settings   -  If this is checked off this could definately be causing an issue

Just a stab at it..

Good Luck

Your work DNS servers should be allocated to your machine via DHCP either when you connect directly to their network or connect over VPN.
If you have them permantly configured manually you will have problems resolving names and therefore connecting to the internet.

crazynoodle, tried to ping google.com and its corresponding IP address without luck. But there was a proxy server in IE which I removed so thanks.

grblades, what do you mean by "permanently configured"? I've gone into the TCP/IP settings of the network card and deleted all DNS servers and everything (now it's config'd to get DNS and IP address from server). Now when I do ipconfig /all, I get the right DNS servers listed but still no luck getting online.

Can you ping 192.168.0.1?
How do you connect to the Internet? Do you have a cable modem or router etc...?

OK I have a couple questions for you.

1) On the Aironet Access point is the gateway correct?
2) Also from the Aironet can you ping your wireless card?
3) From the Aironet access point can you ping google.com 216.239.39.99?
4) Are you using LEAP or WEP?

As it turns out, the signal quality was poor because I was too far from the AP.
