Windows xp laptop can only access the internet at my house. Can't access anywhere else eventhough it can join other wireless networks, it never resolve to the internet. The wireless connection says that is firewalled and I can't change it becuase of a policy. This laptop has never been on a domain so the policy thing is not applied. My system things that Norton is still on the machine all though I removed it from add remove programs. Mcaffe use to be on the machine. I tried the norton removal tool, but it though there was another version of norton on the machine and it would not run. This also applies to the wired network adpater. The only running security tool is avg antivirus.

    Symantec Firewall can be funny like that - as scan McAfee. It sometimes won't remove at all. You may need to do manual removal of each product. Removal tools don't always work. Check to see if their services are still running.

    Sounds like there is a rule setup to block the wireless adapter/IP
