Problems accessing links/webpages


New Member
Here is my problem:
I bought a brand new laptop and have sucessfully connected it to the internet over my wireless network BUT I can't access any webpages (I returned the first brand new Gateway laptop I bought b/c I thought something was wrong with it....bought a brand new HP Pavillion notebook and am having the exact same problem) . I can get Google and search but can't open pages (such as or facebook ect). Pings go through for IP addresses but not URLs. I have another laptop connect to the wireless network that has XP and is working wonderfully. What is wrong???? Is it Vista??? Another little husband's computer is not on the wireless network (directly connected) and he has VISTA and it is working fine.
