Re: wireless router does not work with pc
Since you are able to ping remote address it shows that Router has no problem. Its more at the computer side. Since you haven't indicate your operating system I will give you general troubleshooting steps. reset the Internet explorer settings (If you are using Windows XP you can uninstall-reinstall the Internet explorer). Also you can check and reset firewall settings.Please inform the outcome and your questions if you need further assistance.

Do other wireless laptops connect to your wireless router, and give good speeds? Do you have many wireless networks, other than your own, that show up when you try to connect? It could be interference from other wireless networks in your vicinity.
The PC connects to the Internet because it uses a network cable that is attached to the router. The laptop connects to the router with a wireless connection, you most likely have enabled encryption on the router's wireless settings and if the laptop's wireless card has not been configured with the router's encryption settings, then it cannot connect to the router via the wireless until you enter the encryption (security) key.
I am having exactly the same problem. It occurred on Sunday 17th. I have phoned Optus who seem unable to work out what has happened. It will work wirelessly but not recognise it when set up via ethernet cable.
When connected via wireless open a command box and type "ipconfig /all" and note the DNS settings assigned to your laptop. Then do the same with the wired connection. If the wireless connections are not receiving valid DNS settings, that would explain why you won't be able to access any Web sites. You can then re-configure your router to issue the correct DNS settings as per those issued to the wired connection. You could alternatively add these DNS servers as static settings on your laptop, but its best to do it on the router and leave your laptop set to automatic.
It appears to me that you have everything plugged into the desktop PC. This is not the way that it should be done. Plug the cable modem into the wireless router via the Internet/WAN port. Plug your desktop PC into one of the ports numbered 1-4. Now connect to the router via the wireless connection for the router and you should be able to now connect to the internet with your laptop.
If it still does not work, power down everything in this order: Laptop, Desktop, Router, Cable Modem. Bring everthing up in the reverse order (Cable Modem, Router, Desktop, Laptop) waiting for each device to stablize before moving to the next.
Once you get everything working, turn on your wireless security (WPA not WEP) asap to keep your computers and surfing safe, and to keep intruders off your network.
I think you have lost your PPPOE internet connection. Reestablish the connection. If this is not the problem, click your wireless connection on the taskbar and search for your wireless device and reconnect. BPCS
