Please help, I have a problem on my laptop which cannot surf the net even if im connected to the wireless router. It says connected and but however I cannot use the internet at all. I have made sure that the password is correct and in another discussion(http://ccm.net/forum/affich 10833 modem is connected but not the internet), it said to find the Internet Protocol Properties and change my Ip address, and I really cannot find it. However, if I use aUSB wireless adaptor, the internet works just fine.
Here's the picture of my network connections. Currently, Zyxel is my USB adaptor and Intel Wifi Link AGN... is my laptop's wireless network card or thingy. I really cannot find the Internet Protocol so can you please give me more info?

I really hope this can be answered as quickly as possible as I really don't wish to get the repairman to come.

Thanks your answer helped me by using the same solution of going to the propeties portion on my wireless connection and selecting the two buttons you recommended. Thanks great help.
