Hello all. Yes, i do know that this is an apple forum, but over time i have noticed alot of people on here do use windows based machines, and hopefully those individuals could help me out with this problem. My dads almost new laptop is having wireless issues. He can connect to the availiable wireless network, but for some reason cannot use it to connect to the internet. It says "connected" and it has "excelent" reception. All the other machines in my house, powerbook, imac, ibook, and windows desktop work fine. When i plugged the computer into the ethernet it worked fine. Considering i am the family's technical support, i have spent hours trying to figure something out, but cannot. Im begining to think that his wireless card is simply messed up. Do you guys have any suggestions? Thanks for all the help.
