I'm suddenly having a wireless networking problem...again. My computer says "successfully connected to Network, status: connected, signal strength: excellent. You are currently connected to this network".  However, Firefox and Explorer won't actually connect. I simply get the page cannot be displayed error.

I've verified that my D-Link USB wireless adapter is working, because when I transferred it to my other system and I'm able to log on to the Internet.

Under my connection options I have the following:

Broadband Connection (default)
Auto-detect settings


LAN Settings
Auto-detect settings

When I use the new connection wizard for wireless devices, my network shows up successfully under the "choose a wireless network" list. It then prompts me for a network key, which I enter. A few moments later my tray icon says "Wireless Connection 2 is now connected", and I have a full signal strength bar. However, on the main screen i simply get a information box saying "waiting for the network."



Any suggestions would be appreciated

I toggled off the "auto-detect" fuction, and attempted to set my TCP/IP, subnet mask, default gateway and DNS manually. Once again, I'm showing "connected" in the system tray, I have full signal strength, but I'm still unable to load explorer or firefox.  (No Page Displayed)

I have no idea what else to do. I ran various virus scanners just to see if something else was going on, but I'm getting clean results from AVG and malwarebytes.

<edit>

Went back and deleted my wireless connections. Then started from scratch by using control panel>network and Internet connections>Setup Your Connection:

The following information was displayed after selecting the appropriate network:

-Waiting for network.......
-Acquiring address....Success!
-Connected.

Still can't use any form of browser.

I sometimes have a similar problem on my laptop. It says I am connected to my network but not the internet. when this happens I reboot or do the repair option and it will then say connected to network and internet. I think a couple of times I had to do a hard reboot on the cable modem.  Probably not related to your problem though.

If your router works, then the problem lies in either your Cable Modem or in your computer.are you absolutely sure your Cable modem works, and is connected to the router, and that the cable modem has acces to the internet?

Have you tried to see whether you can acces your router through the computer? Usually, you do this through either an IP adress or www.routerlogin.com or somesuch

The router and cable modem are definitely working. The entire system is wireless, and I still have complete access to my PS3, 360, and laptop. Furthermore, I know my USB wireless adaptor works, as I've transferred it to another computer and it successfully logs that computer onto the Internet.

If everything else works, and the internet connection works on other systems, it seems to reason, that its your computer then. Is there a dongle of something in your computer you connect with, or is that a wireless card as well? Although, if you can acces your other systems through your computer, it does seem like a software failure on your system. Perhaps reistalling your explorer or what you use?
