I have 2 PC's. One is an Acer 5100 laptop and the other is an Acer desktop. I can get on the internet with my desktop but not with my laptop although it indicates that I am connected to the D-Link router and internet connection is complete. What could be wrong? Tom

Re: Laptop won't connect to internet
Your internet link is connected but your browser is not configured for wireless.usually once connected,if you restart laptop you can access internet.if this dont help right click on ur wireless icon(in sys tray) and select properties;in property box check wireless connections.
if ur not using a wireless manager put tick in box for let windows manage.press ok or apply.then restart.

On the bottom right hand side of the desktop you will see the wireless icon, right click on that ans click on troubleshoot problems. This will reset the adapter and assign an IP address for your your PC.
Yes,there is. Make a note of allowed sites on your old settings and put then in on your new settings. Or restore to the last known good point and save the settings in your documents folder and restore to your new point and import the settings from your documents.
Sounds like a hardware issue. I would guess that there is a bad connection between the usb's and the motherboard. If you are comfortable dismanteling the laptop and re-soldering the usb's than give that a try, but I would recomend you give it to a pro.
Here is a link that explains the process.
Hi the router has not picked up your IP address.follow this Turn off your wireless router and internet connection and your laptop aswell for 30secs .Then first turn on your internet (if seperate from the router) if not switch on the wireless router/internet hub and wait untill the lights stop flashing then switch on your laptop and that should work.
