Hi -- I have an PH pavillion laptop. The laptop has a wireless card installed, and it is recognizes my wireless network at my home. However, I cannot get internet explorer or Foxfire to connect to the internet. Any suggestion on correcting the problem would be most appreciated. I have tried some options, but cannot seem to get rid of the problem.

Post this question in the networking forum, you'll get better help there.

Edit: Meanwhile, some questions. Did this ever work or are you setting it up for the first time? Is it a new wireless router, new wireless card in the laptop?

What does ipconfig /all from a command prompt show you? On my Dell Inspiron 6000 laptop it looks like this:
