Wireless Connection

I recently had to replace a router and purchased the same kind-different brand and I have set up the router to the modem. I have two laptops with internal wireless cards. They worked before but now I can make a connection to the network I created but when I try to access the explorer it says there is no internet connection. I can use a cable and connect to the router directly and the internet works. I don't understand why I cannot get the internet wireless if it is showing that I am connected to the network?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

When you open the wireless zero configuration tool does it actually say you are connected? If not, then disconnect and reconnect the network and reenter the key. It sounds like the computers see the network but aren’t actually connected to it.

Hope this helps!

Check to make sure that the “gateway” address in the TCP/IP set up for your wireless NIC matches the address for the router. Different manufacturers can use different addresses. Without a proper getway you can see the network, but you cannot see the internet.

Goodluck!
