Dell Inspiron 600m cannot find web pages

  1. Good morning everyone...

    My old 600m for some reason last night decided NOT to find any webpages. The wireless network indicates that it is connected to the router, functioning properly. My daughter's notebook easily connects to the network, so I know it's not the router. I'm using XP Pro, SP2, Linxsys wireless, Intel 2200BG card.

    I'm not that computer literate, but am usually able to fix most things.


    HELP, please!!

    Thanks!

    We need to verify that you actually have connectivity.

    Join the wireless network and follow these steps

    Click on Start -> Run -> type in "cmd" without the quotes in the box and press Enter.
    This will open a box. then type "ipconfig" (again without the quotes) and press enter.
    This will display your ip configuration. Take a screenshot (print screen key->open paint or word, select paste)

    Or, list what you see under ipv4 address under the "Wireless LAN adapter" section.

    We can go from there.
