Do you have Xp or Vista?
The little computer on the tool bar is one of your network connections (you have 2, one wireless and one wired)
It ssems like the laptop is not connecting automatically to your wireless network. To change this go into whatever program you are using to configure wireless (it may be configured by netgear or by windows) and make sure you have your wireless netowrk selected as conect automatically and at the top of your list.

Hope that helps.

If you get a 'Limited connectivity" on you wireless connection on your laptop, it means that the wireless card on your laptop probably did not get an IP address from the wireless router.
To fix this problem, right click on the wireless icon on the Task bar and then click Repair.
This will force the wireless router to issue a IP address to the wireless card on the laptop.

Netgear wgt624 wireless router installs through wizard up to step 3 and then stops. the computer is a dell inspiron 6000 laptop.


I never use the software supplied with the router, you don't need it. Google "let windows manage wireless" and you'll find many walkthroughs.

Dell Inspiron 6000 with network card Intel/Pro Wireless 2200 BG


So u can connect to the router, but you arent allowet to access the internet?
The router gave your dell a new ip-number, but it dident gave you access to the net. You ned to do the settings in your router manual, let the router give your dell full access.

Good luck
