      Unhappy Wireless connection to sky router wont access internet

      Hi folks
      hope this hasnt been answered elsewhere as i did have a quick look.
      in short:
      had pipex broadband, white netgear dg834gt router, wpa-psk wireless, 3 laptops and a few wired connections AND a wireless access point all working.
      now:
      sky broadband, black sky netgear dg934g, one wired laptop (working), 2 laptops (not working), one wireless router (not working).
      I've been in IT for 20 years, so not totally thick ;-)
      Here's what ive done / where i am:
      1. got a wireless connection (initially wpa but now trying with NO security) to the router, which tells me i'm connected
      2. got a dhcp ip address from the router
      3. got a valid default gateway
      4. can connect via wireless to the sky router config / home page
      5. can ping external addresses (DNS resolution works too) e.g. BBC - bbc.co.uk homepage - Home of the BBC on the Internet
      6. can't see a bl00dy thing from internet explorer.


      anyone help me out please???

      ;-(

      Re: Wireless connection to sky router wont access internet

      UPDATE
      started having lots of issues with the router / broadband connection last night (ain't it great!) and eventually did two hard resets on the router.
      Fortunately, for whatever the reason, my wife's laptop is now able to connect (as above) BUT can also access the internet via IE now.
      I've NO idea how i could get to the point of successfully resolving external dns names and pinging external sites but NOT being able to access via IE, but it's working (for now).
      I'll post an update if the problem recurrs in the next 24 hours or so...

      Re: Wireless connection to sky router wont access internet

      Argh... No replies to this post, but as i said, it seemed to resolve itself. However, after the fuse box tripped yesterday, i'm back as square one. The router came back on, but for some reason with WPA PSK disabled. I restored my sky router settings (for once i DID back them up) but exactly as above. everything is set correctly, i can from a wireless device ping external websites, but cant browse them wirelessly. wired connection works perfectily so cant see it being a port forwarding, nat issue.

      any ideas?

      It could be related to the problem being experienced by BT/Connect users reported elsewhere in the forum.
