I have an XP computer that will not "connect" to links when viewing a webpage.

If I am on wireless, I can type any url in and it will go there.  But if I click on a link on that web page it just sits there until it times out (which is a really long time).

If I plug directly in to the router and bypass the wireless, it works just fine.

Any ideas?
