Wireless connecting to network but won't see internet.
I have an HP Compaq NC6000 running Windows 2000 SP4 with pro adapter. I can get it to connect to the wireless network but it won't give me any internet connection.
I can connect to the internet via the LAN here but when I clear out the proxy server settings in IE6, it cannot find anything on the internet, giving cannot find server or DNS error. I have set IE6 to detect settings automatically, but no joy. I try to ping external sites but it times out. I can see it has an IP address, which I can ping and it has a default gateway set too.
I have tried various options like changing the channel and setting it to 802.11b only but again, no difference.
Software versions would appear to be 18.104.22.168, dated 26/6/06 if that makes any difference.

I am not sure what chipset you are using for your network card na dvideo adapter card.
If the download doesn't work,installed all the update including BIOS from the above link and check our again.Windows service pack 3 usually doesn't give problem on any other drivers installation except audio driver.
If wireless card is listed in device manager under network adapters-that means you dont have to install it. If you running on vista, go to control panel and find ssomething like wireless contol manager or wireless assistant and see if its not disabled there. may also be disabled in bios settings. on windows xp-check if windows has possibility to manage wireless networks or its blocked by third party software. for example i use bt voyager wireless card and its managed by bt software. built in cards are likely managed by windows. type services.msc in run box and see if wireless zero configuration service is enabled.
if u truely wanna see u have a wifi then go to device manager from my computer and click device manager and go to network adapters and explore it u must see it there and to get connected to awireless network, get closer to atmoast 100m from a wireless source and the network connections tab will give a message if not then u lack driver
