It might be that your security settings are wrong make sure that you chose the right encryption settings for example wpa or wpa2 if you have a dns issue make sure you can use your wireless with other devices. if cant then reset your access point
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

what you need to do here is manually set your static IP adress,
I had this problem as well and I know what to do.
you need to go to your network connections ( Controll panel>network connections) in xp (Controll panel>network and sharing center then left hand it sais: change adapter settings )
then rightclick your wireless connection and look at it's properties.
then you need to click on Internet Protocol, for vista/windows 7 it's internet protocol 4 which you need to select.
once selected click on properties just a little below.
there you'll see the setting is on: obtain Ip automaticly, but you'll have to choose ( use the following IP adress ) and enter
IP adress: 192.168.0.99 subnet mask: 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway: 192.168.0.50
once entered press OK and now go to your browser and type the routers adress (192.168.0.50) in my case and now you should be in your modems setup menu.
once changed your setting you need to change your IP back to auto obtain IP adress. or your internet still won't work
1- set up router trough desktop
2-run program for wireless, after it gives you the IP ( which it already has, set user name and password for protection)
3-set up the laptop as a "Shared folder" along with the printer if there is one.
For Router drivers is not required ,U can configure though the command prompt
I can tell some configuration try it,
the default ip adress of the router will the 192.168.1.1 OR 192.168.0.1
In your Lan card configure,
1. obtain Ip adress automitically
go to command prompt----type ---ipconfig---check the ip address which ip is getting---
go to internet explorer ----type the ip address in adress bar-----------login page will get---
login as, user name admin
password admin------configure your internetip adress & DNS ip address,save & check.............
Connect it to your router with an ethernet cable.
Make sure the router is setup correctly to your modem, if you can
connect all your devices by ethernet cable to the internet then it's
set. If you are using a wireless connection and if it asks for the WEP or
WPA key, make sure that you are entering the correct encryption key.
You may want to call your router manufacturer to know the correct key
for the wireless connection. FYI, it will say that the wireless network
is connected but it will still fail the IP Address.
If you have a wired connection and the IP Address or DNS failed, I
suggest you to call your Internet Service Provider to check for the
Internet connection and obtain these (static IP address, subnet mask,
default gateway, primary DNS server and secondary DNS server). If your
Internet is okay, enter the IP settings manually on the console (System
> Network Settings > Edit Settings > IP settings).
let you router allocate the ip addresses manually by enabling DHCP and restart the router,and remove the usb adapter from the usb port and reconnect it, but when you right click on the taskbar on the little pc icons for your connection click enable WZC windows wireless Zero configuration as this will dissable the software you got with the usb adapter and hopefully make the connection more stable, but ensure you have a strong signal.
If not done allready, setup the lan IP address and default gateway in win98 Click MyComputer-ControlPanel-Network-Double Click TCP/IP Adapter for your 3com device-insert LAN info for IP Adress-subnet mask, Gateway and your Internet service providors DNS Addresses info Tab's (3x different Tabs "IP Adress" "Gateway" "DNS Configuration")
IP Adress will be at least one number higher than your gateway address and not allready being used by other PC's on your network and gateway address will same as your router interface address subnet mask will be the same for all PC's on your network.
For 3com and Netgear routers LAN setup is usually
Gateway = 192.168.1.1
Subnet Mask = 255.255.255.0
IP Adress = 192.168.1.10(choose alternate number than 10 if allready used by another PC on your network, try to use round numbers, must be a number higher than 1)
Once all info is entered click OK (this may trigger a database info update message and task)now your LAN is setup and ready to talk to your network
Restart PC and try browsing again. May possibly require reinstallation of the TCP/IP client (you double clicked this to setup your LAN in Win98) or reinstallation of the IIS(Internet Information Services)component found in, Add/Remove Programs-Add/Remove windows components and then try LAN setup again if this does not work first time round
