Anyone know?

I am staying at a friends house and she has wireless, and on my laptop I can connect to their wireless network but NOT to the internet. It says I'm connected We have tried so many things and nothing is working

When you connect to a new wireless network, a box should pop up asking you if it is a private connection or public and if you want your computer discoverable. It could be that the privacy setting was set too high and it is hiding their connection from you.

I have no problem getting a connection, they are unsecured BTW. anyway it says I'm connected at full strength but something is stopping me from getting a web page. Other people can get on but not me, it doesn't make sense

What OS are you on? and what other software are you running security wise? Maybe something is blocking you on your own computer.

I had a similar problem with Vista and an older router - it simply was not going to work. Another thing to try is maybe releasing and renewing dhcp.

Also, have them refresh their settings on their router. That sometimes fixes things.
