I purchased a new USB Wireless Adapter so I can connect online. I puchased a 802.11b/g compatible. After I installed the driver properly, I tried to connect online. The icon tells me that I am connected but I cannot open any web page at all. I tried my old laptop with a 802.11b PCMCIA card and it worked. What's wrong with my new laptop/Adapter connection? It says that the USB Adpater is reversible to 802.11b. The signal is there and I click the connect but it won't open any web page. Any ideas?

Thank you..

They do work well, just wireless cards of any kind can be hard to get to work some times.

So you have got your self a new USB Wireless Adapter that is 802.11b/g compatible. You still have and old one that is only 802.11b, and that one works but the new one dose not. Is this right?

Do you get any errors about limited connectivity? How long has it been like this?
