adsl connected but no access web.

By Lazy Dog ·
Windows Xp Home with all Windows updates.

D-link 604+ with latest firmware.

Using wireless connection as impractical to run cables.

XP tells me that wireless network is available

can connect to router perfectly either with or without WEP.

router tells us that the connection to the adsl service is fine - recieve IP address, DNS server details, etc however can't connect to any web sites either by name i.e or i.p adddress i.e

I can ping dns servers and google from the router config pages.

Broadband provider confirms we're connected to their service and they can ping the ip address assigned to the router.

I've tried entering dns server addresses manually but this makes no difference.

turning firewall on or off doesn't help either.

The REALLY WEIRD thing is...... a neighbour somewhere in the vicinity has an unsecured wireless lan. If I connect to it I can access the internet no problem at all.

any ideas folks??
