looking at the first screenshot there seems to be a discrepancy with the lan settings and the DNS Address setting - may just be the way I'm looking at it but can you access the Internet through the router from the desktop machine.

If you can, please unplug the connection from the desktop and re-connect to the laptop and see if you can then access the net.

Once we are sure that you can access the net wired from both systems we can set-up the wireless

Hi Basically the way I understand the current situation ...

You can connect to the internet from your XP desktop through the router but you cannot connect from the win7 laptop wirelessly.

What I was suggesting is that you unplug the cable going from the desktop to the router at the desktop end and connect this to the laptop. Switch on the laptop, with wireless switched off if possible ) and see if you have access to the net.

If this works then we know that the laptop is correctly set up and it is a wireless issue, if it is a wireless issue we can then proceed to diagnose the problem step by step

YES I could get that connected but I still see.."Cannot connect to this page.".
upon looking around it seems the problem exists ..
with NOT having my ISP connection on the router.. or the laptop...
I saw the below screen :
Local Area Connections - No internet connection
ipV6 - No internet connection
Media State - Enabled
Speed- 100.0 Mpbs
plus other screens when I look at my ISP connections... the box was empty.
I DID not type anything or change anything as it was.

Hello LTP! Your router has a utility so you can make changes to the settings. After you log-in, you start at the page you posted. This is the "Home Page". It is like a report, it tells you how things are set now. It does not allow for any changes. To make a change to a specific area or item, you must click on the word in the dark area to the left, for example the word "Security" as shown here. Then you can modify the settings there.

Those groups and networks confuse the heck out of

The above screen I tried to share with you.. didn't display correctly.. it should have looked like your screen above..Not the error screen.
