Default Wireless Network Connection No Internet

Network connection shows wireless as connected yet can not get to internet
- laptop xp using dell wireless card, this connection previously worked without issues, can not pinpoint what was changed since.

Some info :

-disabled wireless encryption still same does not work
-LAN conection works fine from laptop
-wireless from other computers works fine
-when looking at wireless connected on laptop, able to see ip address, subnet msk, ssid, etc.
-when logged into modem/router can not see the wireless connection for this laptop ?

Please advise ?

Greetings, protak.

Possible ethernet driver corruption? You might try reinstalling anything ethernet as a longshot - Dell should be able to provide the correct software if you plug in your service tag #.

And you've probably already disabled any proxy settings in Internet Options/Connections? And, the obvious: have you tried another browser?

Thanks for the response but dont fully understand, are you saying my ethernet driver may be affecting my wireless access ?
My wired connection is working fine from laptop, its only my wireless connection that can not connect to internet.

I assume proxy setting and browser not issue since works when plugged into ethernet.

I was thinking that a reload of your drivers might correct something we're not seeing. You're right, though: proxy and browser probably aren't the issue.

Just grabbing at straws.

Any way you can get hold of a wireless dongle, see if your symptoms change?

No, I'd leave it here: even though there may be root software causes, it's still a networking problem.

Be patient: the gurus will see your thread, and I'm sure someone will help you out - there are some good people here.

I found problem ...
In settings of wireless network connection
under Internet Protocol(TCP/IP)
It was set to Use the following ip address , changed to Obtain an IP address automatically and save.

This fixed my issue, dont know how this parm got changed but regardless my wireless is back up and running.

Thought i would post find in case someone esle runs into issue .. this thred can be closed now.

Thanks
