Unable to connect to the internet when using DHCP

I am running Windows XP Pro SP2 on my laptop with a Sony PCWA-C300S wireless card. I have a Linksys WRT54G v3 wireless router. I am connecting wirelessly. It is acting as the DHCP server, I have turned off WEP, I have turned off MAC filtering. I am getting an address via DHCP from the router. I can browse the other network computers and ping the gateway, I can ping myself. I cannot ping outside the network, or access the internet. I also have tried setting the DNS statically while receiving the IP via DHCP, and that didn't do any better.

When I use a static IP, I can browse the net just fine. When wired to the router, I am able to browse the net just fine.

I have tried WinsockxpFix. That didn't help.

Please help.

put the machine into the broken setup that should work but dosen't then open a cmd prompt and do an ipconfig /all and paste/save the results so you can put them in here. it sounds like you're not getting a valid (or any) default gateway from the dhcp server.

Here you go. I am getting a valid gateway. Everything there is exactly correct as far as I can see.

Very strange. I went and changed the Router's Ip from 192.168.1.1 to 192.168.2.1 and then did a release/renew on the wireless and everything is working now. I don't understand why the 1.1 would be a problem.

Anyway, Thanks spazztik69. You gave me the idea, so I am accepting your answer.
