I am no computer genius, but, I have managed to connect a laptop to a pc via a wireless connection. This works, drives mapped etc, all great. Both on XP (though of slightly different ages).

The pc is connected to broadband and the laptop has detected the available Internet Gateway, this shows in Network Connections. The wireless connection and broadband connections, on the laptop, are both quite stable, with excellent signal.

But, when I attempt to use IE, it shows that painfully repetitive screen about how the website is not available etc. I feel like I have tried every method of getting online with the laptop and am nearly there, just need a bit of assistance! Could it be something to do with dial-up or LAN settings or something like this?

Any assistance greatly appreciated

what about your wireless repeater, is your security setting on or is everything set to default
