Default LAN connection works wireless does not

I have a Rangemax DG834N Router. My wife's compnay Dell Latitude laptop will only connect to the internet when connected to the Router by a cable. It is configured to connect wirelessly and the wireless network icon on the laptop shows it is connected to my network and there is a v.strong signal.

It could be a firewall issue but I cant understand why it works with a cable but not on wireless.

Is there something in the router I need to trun on to make the wireless work. I have already made it a trusted latptop under setting up wireless station access so the router recognises the MAC address

I am not sure what you are saying?

I have one other dell laptop with note book adapter card that works fine as does my daughters acer which has an inbuilt wireless card like my wifes dell

Is there a solution? why should my wife's dell not connect when the wireless icon shows it is receiving the signal

Check that the router isnít set to use wireless MAC filtering.

If by that you mean access control that is not turned on. Personnally I think the problem lies with how the laptop is configured but it works on using a ethernet cable but not on wireless
