    newb tryn' to set up a wireless connection

    I bought a laptop and a wireless router yesterday. i got the router installed and my lap top says that it's on my network, but i can't bring up any web pages. What am i missing?

    I'm a newb when it comes to computers and can't figure this out (although it's not all that surprising).

    Anything would be appreciated.

    Thx!

    What router did you buy?
    What laptop did you buy?
    What internet connection do you have(dialup, cable, etc)
    Did you follow the instructions that came with the router?

    Sorry forgot some info...
    Router: Linksys WRT54G
    Laptop: HP 5229om-b
    Internet: Cable
    Yup i followed the routers instructions. I have a wireless network but i cant view webpages. Is something not configured properly on the laptop? .I recieve updates from Microsoft but maybe it's just the two computers communicating?


    Ps. Me=Super noob

    Tell me about it. I spent all of yesterday trying to make my wireless internet work on both my PC's. Came down to using the wrong type of cable, which I would've known sooner had they actually labelled the cables using the same names they used in the instruction manual.

    I did practically the same thing yesterday. I was on the phone for an hour with my ISP and no one could figure out what was wrong (and I had a hangover). Then I replaced the old ethernet cable I was using between the modem and the router with a new one and everything worked perfectly. If I'd started with the new one, I'd have been done in two minutes.

    Yeah, it's part of an internet spacetime island created by Durf to trap us in a simulacrum internet controlled by him. What does he want with us? Our pants, of course!

    Okay, to complete the scene, go throw yourself down the nearest elevator shaft. The Millenium Falcon will catch you. I promise. :evil:
