RE: having problems connecting to internet

If your wireless is connected, it sounds as if the problem is the connection from your router to the internet. Can you connect via a wired connection?

You may have a specific wireless connection manager on your machine, it depends on which wireless card you have. Otherwise, look in Start/Control Panel/Network connections, you should be able to set up the wireless from there.
