I'm using a linksys  wrv54g router and several pcs on a home network all running XP.
I recently installed a DPR-1260 printer server from DLink.
On 3 pcs that are hard wired to the router, everything works fine.
On a 4th pc that is wireless, I can get the printer server to work, but now I can longer access the internet using IE6.
I am using DHCP on my network.
Anyone have any suggestions as to why the wirelss pc cant get onto the internet, all others are fine

Does the 4th PC work properly when connected with a wire to the router? Please do this to eliminate troubleshooting steps.

Connect the 4th PC wireless, open a command prompt, do an ipconfig /all and post the results back here.

It is connected to the network if you are able to use the print server. Have you tried using the troubleshooting steps in IE6 when the "not connected" page displays? Using that feature has often fixed a wireless connection for me. I would also try disconnecting and reconnecting to the network.

It turns out the DPR1260 acts a router in that in has a gateway address, confusing wireless devices not knowing which gateway address to use to get to the internet. Once the addresses are changed in the print server , all iswell
