Does not connect to Internet
I have a Vista notebook. I have the wireless NIC configured and connected to
the Access Point. I can ping the gateway, ping a public address by IP but not
by name. Thus I cannot get on the internet. It sounds DNS issues. The router
does DHCP and issues DNS IPs. I even set the IPs and DSN static. Did not help.

All other Vista machines seemed to get on to the internet easily. What am I
missing?

RE: Does not connect to Internet
Can you try the command "ipconfig /all" to see if the name server(s) are
being assigned by DHCP correctly? Also, can you ping the nameserver(s) by ip
address?

You could also try the nslookup command to see if it can resolve names. Try
"nslookup yahoo.com".
