Just posted this in another relevant thread, but I think I should also post it here.
FYI: I did not go via the normal wired LAN configuration method. I turned on the router
. Connected to the WiFi network directly. Went into the admin area and configged the thing. Voila, WiFi + Internet is up!
The connection is working fine, but only on one PC - this Windows
7 PC that I used to config the router. My iMac is my primary machine and the other frequently used machine is my mom's laptop
. While both of them can see and get onto the wifi network, they are unable to access the internet (there's no globe icon over the network icon).
Vista on the iMac (yeah) gets on the WiFi. When I tried to diagnose and repair connection, it said there's nothing wrong with it. WTF! I have no internet! That's what's wrong with it!
Is there any setting in the admin thing to enable more than one machine to access the internet?

Okay.. non-issue.. got this working.
Restarted the router once. Turned off the Netgear
(Hathway) router. iMac connected, Win7 PC connected, PS3 connected and so is the XP laptop.
I must point out that I had to switch from "Use Windows to manage my wireless connection" to the third-party mode on the Win7 PC and the laptop (both use Netgear wireless devices - WG111 and WG311 respectively). I had to use the Netgear Smart Wizard thingie to find and connect to the network, after which everything is happy happy joy joy.
Thank you all for your help, especially @socrates !!
