I recently bought a new laptop (HP zd8000) and I love the thing. I bought it with Home Edition and then reformatted and installed my own legally bought from Staples Professional edition. The zd8000 has a broadcom 802.11b/g WLAN card installed, and i have a linksys WRT54G router. The wired internet with the laptop works, however the wireless does not connect to the outside internet. I inistally thought that this was a problem with the hardware, but when the wireless is on (and the wired connection is not plugged into the laptop) i can connect to the router and acess the status page, as well as acess a local FTP on another machine on my local network, but i cannot view any non-local webpages i.e. google. This was happening when i pulled the machine out of the box and after i reformatted too. Is there a certian setting i need to have on in the router or on the laptop? thank you so much for any help.
