What is your means of access to the wireless network, do you connect to a router (Infrastructure Mode) or connect wirelessly to a another PC (ad Hoc). In both cases check whether you have been assigned a Ip by DHCP.

Since you uninstalled Norton, you need an anti-virus... so install (free) MSE!

I second the MSE package... It's been awesome for me, and I have begun to use it as my standard AV recommendation.

I have trapped at least 20 viruses using MSE. The UAC is ALSO very effective in reducing the effects of virus attacks.

Lots of happy users out there now... Fast and Effective software!

Enjoy!
