Hello MANY APOLOGIES I THINK I PUT THIS IN THE WRONG FORUM BEFORE

I have a desktop with windows 7 32 bit installed connected to a wireless router (addon nwr5000) all is well
Wirelessly off this I have 2 x xp laptops, a Samsung tv, ipod touch and a epson wireless printer.

All are working fine with no problems and running off my wireless home network
I have just bought a desktop that has windows 7 64 bit installed with a usb adapter for wireless (addon nwu280). This is for a present for my son to use upstairs instead of the xp laptop.

Connected and tested it yesterday whilst he was at school so it can just be plugged in on Christmas day.

The new desktop can see the wireless network gets a strong signal over 90% and attaches straight away but is not able to connect to the internet. The network map shows it connecting to router but no connection on to the internet.

If I connect using my next door neighbours unprotected wireless it connects straight away no problem all be it on a weak signal

I have tried running my network unprotected but this does not help

Please help

Many thanks in advance

Check that the router and the wireless adapter are both using the same network protocol (and passphrase, obviously).

I would test with wireless security temporarily turned off in the router.
