I'm setting up a network with 3 PC's and a wireless-enabled laptop. Not a great problem as everything has gone fine with the hard-wired connections to the PC's and the router.
BUT... I cant for the life of me figure out how to get the laptop connected to the internet via its wireless USB device. It detects and connects to the wireless network fine and the router sees and allocates it an IP address fine as well.
As well as the wireless connection in "Network Connections" there is a 1394 firewire port (which always seems to connect automatically for some reason), and a normal NIC socket. I've disabled both of these in an attempt to force it to connect to the internet via the wireless connection. Laptop is running IE at the moment (user is not too happy about changing) which pops up a window saying that its unable to find an internet connection every time you try to access a website. I've tried manually configuring an IP and DNS server but still no luck.
I think it must be a local setting on the laptop but dont have a clue what.
Any ideas on how to sort this??
