    I recently set up a new wireless network in my home. The other lab tops not used in the setup have no problem locating and accessing the network. Mine however indicates that is connected to my network and that it has full signal strength yet when I go to use a browser (either safari or firefox) I get an error message that my computer is not connected to the internet. I have checked the proper router and IP numbers and that doesn't seem to be the problem. Any thoughts?

    This may work:

    1. Download OnyX (a free maintenance utility).

    2. Open OnyX and Click Cancel on these two Alert Panels:
    -Cancel the S.M.A.R.T. Box
    -Cancel the Startup Volume Box

    3. Enter your Password

    4. Click on the Cleaning Tab

    5. In each tab, execute the command. Check all the boxes in each tab. When its finished in that tab, it will ask you to reboot. Say NO. Go on to the next tab and repeat until all tabs are done. THEN REBOOT.

    Not a lot of information to go on.

    Wireless Router (Type/Firmware version)
    IP address of the computer connected to the WiFi
    WEP (64-bit or 128-bit)/WPA/WPA2-PSK/AES, (please don't share)
    SSID name
    The router's IP
    DNS servers

    Oh, and while you're trying to diagnose these things, repair your permissions.
