Hi I have just bought a DELL inspiron 1525 Laptop with wireless.
I have a Netgear wireless router with a network. It is listed in the 'Networks avaible' I click on it a type in the correct password and after a while it says this is taking longer than usual. Then it says connected to the router but does not have access to the internet
Can Anyone Help?

I had the same exact issue. You may want to try the following.

Start, Programs, Accessories,***right click on Command Prompt, Select Run as an administrator.

At the command prompt, type ipconfig /flushdns

After it completes, type in ipconfig /registerdns

type exit and reboot the machine, it should have worked
