You may want to check your connection settings in Internet Explorer - Tools + Internet Options + Connections. If you had any dialup settings or anything in there previously you should disable them. The other thing you can try is running the network setup wizard and telling the machine that you connect directly thru a network hub.

Windows WiFi Fix, Windows Zero Wireless Configuration is one of the best programs to run a WiFi in Windows XP or Vista. Most of the other software packages that come with the different adapters have been poor at best in keeping a connection through Windows. Here is the best guide to get you back up and connected. Windows XP: Click Start Right click on My Computer When a window pops up click on properties Click on the Hardware tab Click Device Manager Click the [+] next to Network Adapters Find your wireless card and right click on it. Click Disable Windows may warn you that disabling the device may make it stop functioning. Continue disabling the device. Wait 30 seconds or so. Right click on your wireless again and click Enable. Exit the device manager. Reconnect to your router. You should now be able to connect to the internet.

Try connecting to another wireless connection... if it connects to another connection and you get to the internet, then it is something with your wireless router or modem. Your PC can "see" a wireless connection, so it is NOT PC hardware.
It sounds like you can connect to the router, but cannot go through the router to get to the internet. Probably a simple issue with your modem or router. Try power cycling the modem, and power cycling the router. Then restart your PC and try connecting again.
If all that fails, try installing Mozilla Firefox and see if that will get out to the internet. It may be a problem with Internet Explorer.
ok so you are connected to the wifi network. if your wifi is broadcasting internet and you got server nt found errors, it could be a browser problem...also, are there any other computers connected in the same network that can't connect to the internet? if so, then it is a network configuration error
if it is a browser's error, misconfiguration, etc, try to check:
1. right click on the IE's icon on desktop and click properties 2. Go to Connections tab 3. Click on LAN Setting 4. Check "Automatically detect settings
Make sure also that in your browser, you did not check the "Work Offline" option. Look at it at the File menu
When you have IE up, there is a tool tab over on the right side of the screen. On the drop down list there is a tab marked "work offline", make sure that is not checked. In most cases when this has occured, I had to take a paperclip and push the reset on the router for approx. 40 seconds, then power the router down and then the computer....after a minute power the computer back on, then the cable modem....once the lights get stable, power the router back on....check your status, if you get online, access your router settings and re-engage your security.
On the Support tab - what does it say the "Address Type" ? If its DHCP then check that on the TCP/IP properties; If on "automatic IP address" then it wont take any entered IP address.
Do not put any IP address.
Check that "Obtain an IP address automatically" is checked and also "Obtain DNS server address automatically" is also checked. On wireless network tab check "Use Windows to configure my wireless network settings".
On preferred network check that your wireless network is there, if not add it and move it up
HI If the browser shows working offline and wireless is connected fine then it could be an issue where work offline is checked in the browser. In internet explorer 6 its found on File in the menu, if work offline is already checked, check it again to remove the check mark and then try, if its internet explorer 7 its found on tools, the same steps and in firefox under file, Also try this step as well, if its internet explorer go to tools-internet options-and in internet options-go to connections tab-there is dial up and networking box-remove the dial up connections from the box-and check the one never dial a connection
also check the firewalls and antivirus programs, post your results.
