Specs: IOS , i5 Intel
I have a desktop PC running windows 7 professional.

I have inserted a D-link wireless dongle to link it to out home wifi. It connects with the said wifi, but fails to connect to the Internet. (Other devices in the house have no problem in this regard) What could this be? I have checked the firewall settings and they dont appear to be the problem.

Any advice will be appreciated.

Kindly

Ok, here is a start, check your settings as per this page, fingers crossed one will work.

Let us know if they don't.

If one works, let us know which one.

Can you compare settings for the browser on the problem computer with another which works (connects to the internet) ok -using dongle in question?

Also, if the dongle requires its own driver(s) perhaps uninstall the device fully (drivers included); then reboot and reinstall it?

What does ipconfig /all reveal on the laptop in question, compared to a working one (with same dongle)?
