first you can Ping (free DNS from Google) if you can get reply in your lap the router configuration and your system is working perfectly ,if not check ip address on Your Lap , play as DHCP.Otherwise check the browser and look any Proxy configuration in Lap ,If remove it .

Go to router web interface

and Put the DNS

Try it

ahh...i've had this problem many times...reset the router...connect the router to your computer through the ethernet port...type in your adress bar...admin...make settings the way you want to...DO NOT USE THE INSTALLATION CD-ROM OR THIS WILL NOT WORK
