Wireless Internet Problem

  MrGeesBigCircus 01:21 15 Jan 05

Hi there,

I have broadband linked to my desktop PC, and to that I have connected a Linksys WAP54G wireless access point.

I have a Dell laptop with built in wireless card which I am trying to access the net through.

I can share files between both machines but I cannot get any internet access on the laptop.

I have played around with the TCP/IP settings on both but I'm now pulling my hair out!

what operating systems are on each computer please? may help a bit.

Sorry, WinXp on both

then you need to enable "Internet Connection Sharing" on the PC connect to net.

You can find how to do this by searching Windows' build-in help.

Already done this but still not working

have you tried the wireless network set up wizard in control panel?

I have tried this but it just sets up the connection, which is fine - it's the internet acces I'm trying to get.

Is it anything to do with my DNS settings?

check your firewall settings

y firewall is set to allow access for my local network and IP addresses within that range.
