That happened to me once, and all it ended up being was that the "main computers" firewall had it blocked. I use a Linksys wireless system with XP. I allowed it to pass the firewall and have had no further problems. Just a thought.

make sure your TCP/IP settings on the wireless computer are correct; specifically the Gateway (Wireless router) IP add

Simply connecting to the wireless router does not necessarily indicate internet capabilities
