Problem connecting to internet on a wireless network

I'm having problems getting one of the computer's in our home network to connect to the internet.

The main computer that is attached to the Linksys Wireless router can connect to the internet, and so can one other computer that is connected to the wireless network.

I'm using Verizon FIOS service. Right now, it says that it has a connection to the Wireless Network, & an Internet Connection has been established, but there is still nothing connecting on Internet Explorer. What could I be doing wrong? I am guessing that there is something different on the setup of this one computer, since every other computer works, but i can't pin point the difference in setup.

** EDIT: I was able to find the problem myself. If anyone else has a similar problem, I had to lower the RTS threshold within the Linksys settings. A link to the FAQ from Linksys follows..

You have connected to the internet but the browser must be able to see that.

The usual fix to this is: Open Internet Explorer > Tools > Internet Options > Connections > LAN Settings > TICK Automatically Detect Settings.

Tell me if anything works..
