I apologize if I'm posting in the wrong spot, this is a first time for me.

My wireless computer is connected to the internet but I can't update the virus definitions in my anti-virus program. I've tried downloading a different anti-virus program but I can't get to the websites. The wired computer has no problems. I'm using a linksys wireless router. Does anyone have any idea what's wrong? Thanks for any help/suggestions.

Thank you hughv for your reply and suggestion. I'm scanning right now and will post the result (good or bad).

The error message that I got when I was trying to update the antivirus programs was just that I wasn't connected to the internet.


Do you have a firewall installed? My firewall once blocked my anti virus program, try looking to see if internet or server connection is blocked/denied access.

Which anti virus/firewall are you using?
