I have a linksys wireless router. My desktop that is hard wired in can access the internet and network. If I plug the ethernet cable into the laptop it can connect.
I have used MSConfig to basically disable all programs not necessary. I have reinstalled my wireless card with new drivers. Also, I have checked the configuration on the router and I have no security set up - the settings in the microsoft wireless network setup properties match.
I have the router set up as dhcp and the wireless card has an ip address from it, however, it does not even connect to the router when I type the address in. It also does not see other computers on the network.
