Hi all,

I have a laptop running Win98SE wirelessly connected to a mixed wired/wireless network (Netgear WGR 614 router). I have no problem seeing the other computers on the network and sending jobs to the printer, and I can log into the router, but I can't access the internet for beans. I have no site restrictions specified for either the router or the laptop. Any suggestions?

Thanks.

I can't ping any public IP's, unfortunately - all I get is "request timed out."

How many internet shares does your router have set?

The router is currently set to distribute up to 50 IP addresses. At the moment, I have two Win XP machines directly wired into the router, as well as a network printer, leaving one LAN port free. There are also two Mac OSX PowerBooks, a Win98SE laptop and a Win98SE desktop wirelessly connected, apart from the laptop that is giving me troubles. Wireless access is limited to the MAC addresses of the wireless devices in the office, including the troublemaker.
