wireless internet works but no internet

I just installed a Linksys Wireless-G WRT54G broadband router connected to a cable modem (Rogers service), one PC running Win XP and setup on a new Averatec Notebook, running XP, with built-in wireless. Very simple right?

The attached PC is up and working file through the router (Internet access, email, etc.).

I have anther PC on wireless port that work fine

the laptop on the other had tells me it is conected has an ip address i  can ping it with 0 loss but no internet access the browser tells me no internet access point to get on tho the internet

Current WEP is disabled. When it was enabled (as suggested by Linksys tech support), the Notebook coulld see the SSID.  

I've tried every "solution" listed on Linksys tech support and can't get this last connection working.

Can anyone please tell me (step-by-step; a monkey could do it) how to fix this little problem?
I've been through this so many times over the last three days that I can't even see straight.
Thank you in advance for helping this befuddled old soul

From the laptop , can you ping a website ?

can you give the specific error that you get when you try to go to a website ?

can your email client like outlook or outlook express or messenger server like msn messenger or yahoo messenger work from your laptop ?

try to restart your laptop and see what happens.. just in case you have not tried that..

If you have any firewall , temporarily disable it and see if that would help

And, in My Network Places can you 'see' the other computers on the internal LAN?  And if reference to the above suggestions, if you can ping outside the network, can you use an IP address to access an internet site?  If so, then the probem is more than likely DNS.  If not, then it sounds like a Gateway problem.

I can not get to any websites or use e-mail or messager programs

It tells me I do not have a connection to the internet.

I can ping The Router but no outside websits.

Do you know if the laptop or the problem PC connects to internet fine with a wired connection from the router.

have you tried to recreate your wireless connection once again to see if that would help.
add the wireless network name like default or whatever name you have got and see what happens.

Have you tried stopping and starting the Wifi Services?

Go to Control Panel.
Choose Administrative Tools.
Select Services. A two-pane window comes up.
In the right-hand pane, scroll down and click Wireless Zero Configuration.
Click Stop the Service. A progress bar may come up briefly.
Click Start the Service. Again, a progress bar may come up.
Close the Services window.
