Question

Can connect to internet but not go anywhere

I'm trying to connect to the internet via a wireless router. The computer says it is connected and I can ping yahoo.com but whenever I try to go to a web page it takes me to the Belkin Wireless Setup Page. There is no password on the router and other computers can successfully surf the internet. Any suggestions?

RE: Any Suggestions ...

When you created your post there was a note that stated:

How about telling us the browser used, the Operating System, the home page for the browser used, have you tried a different browser, the brand and model of the router used, etc. - <i>specifics related to the
problem</i> as it were.

Info Update

The computer is a Dell XPS m1330 running Windows Vista Business. The home page of the browser(s) is www.yahoo.com but it never goes there. No matter the address it still goes to the Belkin router setup page. We've used Internet Explorer and Google Chrome. The router is a Belkin N+ F5D8235-4 v1.
