Hi guys,

Just brought a ASUS WL-520gc router the other day.  Set it up no problems. On my hp laptop it connects to it just fine and say excellent signal strength, but when i open up internet explorer and try to browse a page it doesnt work?

Please help

I'm not an expert but I would suggest try "ipconfig /all" from commandline and see if the default gateway and the DNS are set correctly.

Also try ping and see if it resolves the domain.

Is the router set up as a DHCP server?

Have you entered your ISP info correctly?

Is the laptop wifi internet ip4 protocol set to automatic ip address and auto dns?

Also try connecting laptop to router via network cable and see if it browses the internet - if not then the router probably isn't set up correctly.
