I have an HP pavilion lap top. I had a wireless connection in my dorm that was shared with my roommate. The wireless box was set so that only my computer and her computer could use the connection. All of a sudden, i cannot use the internet. I checked the connection, and it says my connection is enabled and excellent. I cannot sign onto AIM, or use AOL, or Internet Explorer. I am connected with Linksys. My status currently says connected, and my strength is excellent. My roommates internet was not affected. I dont know why my internet doesnt work.
