Wireless Networking

  1. I am on a Wireless Network with three PC's, two of the PC's can get on the Internet but one cannot! The one PC that cannot get on the internet is receiving a signal, a very strong signal but when I click on my browser (IE) I continuously get the page "Cannot Connect To Server", does anybody out there have a remedy or know what the problem is?

    Thanks

    you could try and rerun the wireless network wizard and redue the home network wizard.. that is what i do on my wireless at home and it seems to work..you could also try pinging a name server if you know one and wait for the ip address and then input that ip address into the network setting for the dns.i would do the dns on the main box since you are more than likely sharing the internet connection to the other pc's..if not then we need to know how you have you network settings in case it is something like a simple firewall issue... make sure those are all off when testing and troubleshooting wireless issue.let us know
