    Hi there.

    I have just upgraded my Pc from XP Pro to vista home premium.

    i have always connected to the internet through a wireless connection from a router on my other pc which is running XP pro.

    now, when i look on network connections, (on vista) my wireless signal comes through, i put in my password and i have an "excellent" connection. when i run my mouse over the wireless icon it says i have local and internet conection. However, when i open a browser, (Firefox and IE) nothing will load, saying there is no connection. the same happends when trying to update virus and spyware protection, logging onto msn etc etc.

    I have tryed many tips including turning off firewalls on pc and router. to be honnest im pritty stuck as to what to do now!!

    Any help would be amazing.
