I have a linkseys wireless router at home connected to one computer. My younger sisters picks up the wireless through her network card and I have a toshiba wireless laptop. All was working fine on my laptop for a couple of months now all of a sudden I cannot gain internet acess. It says I am connected to the wireless router and that the connection is strong, but everytime I try to go on the internet it says page cannot be displayed. It's not the router because I have even tried to work it at a Internet Hotspot.
The laptop is a couple of months old, it picks up the router signal but no internet connection what could it be? I have tried internet set up and it seems all in order.

Note: Generally, wireless IEEE 802.11a cards cannot be used for 802.11b/g or 802.11n wireless networks. Some cards are rated 802.11a/b/g but they must be set to either 802.11a or 802.11b/g and not both. In the US wireless channels allowed are 1-11. Generally in Europe it is 1-14.

You may bring these questions to work IT as you may not have all the answers.
If this laptop has a wireless switch, make sure it's on. Did you get the wireless hub? Wireless is controlled by the wireless zero service, which should turn on automatically when your adapter is detected. You can turn it on manually in Control Panel/Admin Tools/Services
Check your router is accepting backward compatible connections of 802.11b, as it may be set at 802.11g only especially if it's a 108 or 125mbps router as your laptop will only be 54mpbs and not see the router at all.
Sometimes you have to dissable then re enable the wireless network adapter or refresh it for it to do a new search of networks.
