Internet only working with proxy

Alright, I got a problem. Not mine personally, but here it is. I have a set up with two computers, and three servers connected to a D-Link router using Comcast's Highspeed Internet. The main computer and servers work fine, however the second computer which is connected wirelessly with a Belkin antennae doesn't work right. The Wireless computer cannot connect directly to the internet, I only get 404 errors. However it does work with instant messangers, just not browsing, or FTP or anything else. If I use a proxy however then it works. Anyone know what might cause this prevention from direct connecting to the internet?

AnalogMan, my initial gut reaction is router firewall. Sounds to me like for some reason or another you're being blocked. Why? Dunno.

Hmmm... I don't have physical access, but I'll try and look into it. In the meantime, does anyone have any other ideas??
