Specs: Windows XP
Hello all,
I just recently bought a wireless adapter for my Laptop (dell) its a bit old but it has XP home edition. When installed my netgear wireless usb adapter it says it is connected to my newtork and it has a great connection but it will not let me go to any websites. If I go to facebook it gives me the login screen but then wont allow me any further. Youtube won't let me search videos, i basically cannot do anything with it and im not sure why it also rarely rarely lets me access ANY websites even when my connection is 100%, Please Help I know a very small ammount about this kind of thing! Thanks in advance.

Did you disable the laptop's wireless in the bios or is it disabled on the laptop itself?
