Wireless in Vista is working But no Internet

By alibnou ·
I have an issue that is driving me NUTS, i bought a Linksys USB Adapter WUSB600N, installed on my desktop, and i tried to browse the internet through My Router LinkSys WRT54 which is connect to my DSL modem.
The problem i am having in this situation is that my USB shows that the wireless connection is fine and i can easily ping my router and resolve any domain name e.x:,.... but as soon as i tried to navigate to any Website from the IE, Google chrome i get, after few seconds, a page connot be displayed and no matter what i do it is always the same problem. But as soon as i plug in my Ethernet cable ALL works fine.
To troubleshoot this here is what i did:
1- Disabled IPV6 from the REgistry and from the NIC interface>Properties, for both Wireless and local interfaces
2- Disabled QOS for both interfaces
3- Tried using a static IP address for my Wireless interface
4- downloaded the most recent fireware for my Linksys WRT54G and the apropriate vista driver for my wireless USB adapter
5- Did Windows Vista updates
6-checked is the Radio frequency (RF) is enabled. and i don't have any RADIO, Phone,...) nearby
7-Disbled the wireless authentication(WEP, WPA2,...) and left the wireless wide open to anyone to connect. and still didn't work
8-Disabled the Upnp on my WRT54G Router

All the above didn't fix the problem and i don't know what else i could do any help, idea would be appreciated. Thank you.

For internet access, you need to configure DNS IP addresses correctly to resolve names to IP and configure Default Gateway on your PC to point the IP address of your router.

Depending on the router, you can either configure it to auto-resolve the DNS addresses or manually configure DNS IP addresses from your Internet Provider.

Check you internet security

To make sure that your firewall is not preventing access to this network, remember that if you connect to a network wireless ly your computer will see it as a different network to the wired one you used to be connected to, and this might be restricted by trust control depending on your internet security package
