Netbook problem?

Microsoft Outlook 2003 (full product)

Specs: XP Pro, not sure
My mother was having a problem with her net book not connecting to her wireless network. I went over and took a look and it was connected to the network but would not access the internet. I took it home and it did the same thing on mine, connected to my network but IE would not. She happened to get a new laptop for mother's day and it connected and accessed the internet with no problems through her wireless network.

It must be a setting somewhere but I can find it?

Run ipconfig /all from a command prompt & post the output.

It's not getting an IP address from the router. Look at the device manager to make sure the drivers are installed correctly.

The wireless network adapter, of course. Isn't that why you posted the question?

Was there an update that changed windows firewall settings? I've seen that happen. Also disable Norton, Zone Alarm or any firewall that you may have.

Try safe mode.
