I have a couple of old laptops that have wireless capability. They both recognize our wireless network and list it as connected and show the signal strength, yet when I try to go on the internet I get that nasty message that it is unable to get online. What am I missing. I removed the checkmarks on LAN settings...I am stumped!
Is your wireless network secured? What type of encryption do you employ and are the older laptops able to use that level of encryption? Some older wireless NICs can only use WEP whereas more recent models use stronger encryption such as WPA/PSK
