dns problem?-cant connect to internet

I have two computers
Both are connected to a combined wireless modem/router

The first is connected by a cable and has no problem connecting to the internet

The second, connected by wireless, manages to establish a good connection to the router and to the wireless network (Shows strong connection signal) but shows an error message:

Cannot connect-DNS or server problem.

I am unsure what to do next

Hello,
Did you get an IP from the router? (If you are using Windows, go to the Command Line and type ipconfig <Enter Key>). Can you see that your wireless adapter got an IP?
A "strong signal" is not a proof that you are already connected to the Wireless Modem.
You should view the list of available wireless networks, choose your wireless Modem, and select Connect.

Best regards,

Dov
