Laptop wifi connection problem

I have a Dell laptop with an internal wifi card and Windows XP. I installed Kaspersky virus-protection software, and it's suddenly able to connect to the Internet, even when I plug it directly into my cable modem with an ethernet cable. My modem and wireless router seem to be working because my VOIP phone service works when it's all plugged together. My laptop also registers my network (ie says the connection is "very good" or "excellent") but the web pages won't load at all. Maybe not relevant but there's some sort of Intel/Proset wireless software that seems to control the connections. Any thoughts? Thanks.

Seems like you have a pretty old laptop. I'm guessing its got a wireless B card installed internally. And wireless B supports WEP most of the time. And if you're lucky the manufacturer of that wireless card may have an update to patch your card so that it will see WAP. Otherwise you can replace that internal card or get a usb / PCMCIA wireless card that supports at least wireless G standard.

Try installing other anti-virus like NOD32 or karspersky. You can also try to do a system restore, this may or may not solve the problem though,also using the system restore may get rid of some application you have install prior to the date you will revert it to.

Or you can try this online virus scan

have them scan your system (its free),that way you'll know if your computer really has a virus or not.
