what are the ip addresses of the two systems and do you have dns on both systems?   It sounds like the one that can not get to the internet does not have a valid dns value or dns at all.   From a command prompt enter. [  ipconfig /all ] and check to see if they both have a gateway and both have dns values that are valid.  If this does not solve your problem please let us know the values from both systems.

have you configured internet connection sharinbg, or are you going through a router?

why are you not using dhcp on the wireless connection? Have you entered the DNS entries in the wireless computer?

D. Cooper.

have you configured internet connection sharinbg, or are you going through a router?

I believe it is going through the linksys router?

why are you not using dhcp on the wireless connection?

I don't know.  How do I check DHCP?  This computer has worked before.  So I don't understand why DHCP would have changed.

Have you entered the DNS entries in the wireless computer?

No.  How do I do this?

okay...

if the computer is windows xp, you will need to go into the control panel. (make sure it is set to clasic view - there is an option on the left hand side of the control panel screen if you can't see what i'm talking about)

double click network connections.

right click the one that says wireless network connections and open up properties

from the list in the middle of the box that opens, you need to select internet protocol (tcp/ip)

clcick on properties

select both the settings on the general tab to obtain automatically.

click okay through all the screens, and restart your computer

You might want to change the wireless channel on your router, it might be a noise or busy chanel you are on.  If you router has wireless N you might want to change it to B-G we have noticed routers that are running N have produced this problem even more...
