I have recently set up a modem to allow two computers to have wireless internet access. Both computers are affected by the same problem:
The computers recognise the wireless network and connect to it, showing excellent signal. However, when trying to open a web page, it won't work and instead the 'internet explorer cannot find this page' message is displayed. In addition,
the old broadband access window shows up (i.e. Bt broadband window, asking for old password and user name).

I have tried disabling the broadband connection and repairing the wireless but neither has helped. I have configured the computers to look for the Ip address automatically.
I would really appreciate any advice about this problem, as hopefully it si not too difficult to solve! On one computer I have tried to uninstall the bt broadband program but I'm not sure if I have done so sufficiently,

thanks a lot for the help!!
