Can't access internet on my laptop thru my wireless router

inGen
Hi. I bought a new wireless router 300 TDSL Type W2 (Type W2). I was able to connect my desktop (Windows XP) to the router via ethernet. The WLAN light glows on it showing that it is ON. And on turning ON my laptop's wiFi, it gets connected to it too. But, it shows "No internet Access" with an exclamation sign it the network area of the notification bar in my laptop (Dell Vostro 1015) (Windows 7). I checked my router for it's IP address and entered it in "IP version 4" of "change adapter settings" in "Network & Sharing center". I entered all other settings as :-
IP address : any one between 198.168.1.0 to 198.168.1.254
Subnet mask : 255.255.255.0
Default gateway : 192.168.1.1
Preferred dns srver : 192.168.1.1
altrnate dns srvr : 8.8.8.8

I'm not able to figure out why I can't access internet frm my laptop via wifi although I can access it on my desktop via ethernet....

Plzzz help !!!

      You're getting ahead of yourself by assigning your laptop a static IP. Change it back so that it obtains automatically. Then open a command prompt (Start > Run > cmd) and type ipconfig

      What results do you get for IP address, Subnet Mask, and Default Gateway?
