My PC is wireless and it is shown as connected with a good signal, however, I
cannot connect to the internet or revtrieve my email.

Any ideas on how to troubleshoot this?

Connected to what?

A wireless connection to an access point can be showing as good, however
that only shows the 'physical' connection. The laptop might not be
connected in network terms - it may not have an appropriate IP address,
or the WEP key might be wrong. You probably have an issue at layer 3 or
above

Greetings

Are you receiving an IP address from your router? Check by right clicking
the adapter in Network connections and click support. Make sure you do not
have an automatic private address. Another quick try would by to right click
and repair the connection.

If you are getting an IP, try to run nslookup from DOS, perhaps it is a DNS
issue.

start->run->cmd
nslookup www.google.com

if you get back an IP address, your DNS is working well.

Hope this helps

When I right click the adapter connection it does not give me the option to
choose support
