|I have a D-Link DWL-G700AP. Bought it from someone on Craig's List who told me we could just plug it into our cable modem with ethernet and we'd be able to access the internet. I have G4 Imac (Intel) and we have the Compaq Presario C700 laptop. Mac connected to it no problem right out of the box, without even running the install wizard. The Compaq is not allowing access to the internet.|
I ran install wizard and set the security to WPA2-PSK with a passphrase. The wireless window says it is connected, signal strength is good, but it is only allowing "local" access with no internet access. I've tried everything to get it to allow internet connectivity, but it won't. Is this the computer's problem or wrong hardware?, Did I buy something that should not be used in this way from someone who just wanted to get rid of it?
I'm thinking there is probably a setting that I'm missing on the Compaq to make it work. Thanks for any insight you can provide!
