    Limited Connectivity to Wireless

    Alright, so I recently have subscribed to a cable company to obtain internet. They offered me a Belkin G router free. I took it. My Wii connects to it, so everything with it seems fine. However my computer has trouble with it. I have never had trouble connecting wirelessly to any other router other than this one. Whenever I try to connect to it, it says that "This computer is connected to the network but does not have access to the internet."

    What can I do to fix this, any ideas? I feel like it's some weird setting somewhere, maybe not though.

    Upgrading driver would fix this,

    connect to internet through internet cable or to other wireless

    go to

    control panel
    hardware and sound
    device manager
    network adapters
    wireless adapter network
    right click and update driver software

    Did you give your computer permission to access the network.
