Hi,
I can not connect to internet from laptop #1. Gateway AMD Turion64 Windows XP Home Edition

My work laptop can connect no problem.
Both wireless connections.

I go to Start>Connect To>Show All Connections
All connections are Disabled and I find the wireless connection which shows the Name of the network so I connect.
It shows connected. but can not access internet sites.

I go to Start>CMD> ipconfig
and laptop 1 shows
