    I have a MBP (2007 model) and i recently setup a home network. The router is a Belkin N Wireless router. My laptop is the main computer in my home. Now my Ipod Touch and my cell phone work just fine with my router; i.e they connect and i can surf the net and stuff, but my laptop will not get on the net once i disconnect the ethernet cable from it. It will connect to the network, but nothing after that. How can i solve this problem?? :confused:

    First make sure you're connected to the airport, than go to your Network Setting in System Perf, look at Airport and either take a screenshot or write down the info you see. Go to Advanced and tell us the information in TCP/IP and DNS tabs, you can ignore the rest of the tabs.

    I agree with what @MikhailT said and will add one more tip.

    Go to System Preferences > Network > Airport > Advanced >TCP/IP and verify that "Using DHCP" is selected (see screencap below). It sounds like you may have inadvertently put a static IP in.
