I have a wireless Network just set it up. PC works fine and 2 Lappys ok but when I take the card out and put it in my third lappy it connects to the Network ok cos I see activity on the "status" but I cannot connect to the Internet. I have been at it for days but no success even reinstalled XP but still no joy. Ayone have any ideas?

Do you have all the same stuff under the Connections Tab in Internet Explorer: Tools - Internet Options on the problem machine as on the others?

Also it has been working before on a wired network.

Have you checked that the Subnet Mask is the same on ALL computers and the Default Gateway is the IP Address of the computer which connects to the internet or router?

You should be able to solve it by re-running the Network Connection Wizard. I'd recommend that you choose to manually set your network connection and not let Wizard do it because it seems to be having problems connecting wireless networks properly when wired hardware is also installed and disconnected.

If I manually set it what exactly do I do?
