I've just set up a router on my pc & have set up the wireless on a laptop. The connection is good & strength excellent but internet pages won't load on the laptop. Can anyone help please.

Can you connect to the Internet from your PC?

Can you ping the router from your laptop? It sounds like you can connect to the wireless router from the laptop, but are the network settings correct? (Like, if you have DHCP running on the wireless router, is your laptop set to automically acquire an IP address?)

Do you need to enable NAT (network address translation) or port forwarding on the router?

Welcome to Geekzone.
Are the laptops internet settings set up to use the router?
