XP Wireless Issue

I've just done a clean install of XP onto my laptop. I've gone through the motions of setting up the connection to my wireless (which my Win7 laptop is connected to) and it's showing as a success - the icon is there showing full connectivity with a strong signal. However, when I try to access the internet via IE or Chrome (or indeed to update antivirus definitions etc) it goes nowhere.......... I get a 'this page cannot be displayed message'. Within IE, if aiming for Google for instance I get a 'website found waiting for response' message but then the old 'this page cannot be displayed message'. Opening the network dialogue it appears that data packages are being sent but next to nothing is being received. I tried temporarily turning off the firewall but this did not help. Chrome helpfully suggested that it could be a DNS issue but the settings are to 'obtain DNS server address automatically'. I'm with BTInternet and my WIN7 laptop wireless is working fine as is the PC connected via ethernet. Can anyone suggest what may be wrong please (non-techie please!!!)? Thanks Peter
