Wifi problem...

We just moved into a new place where internet is included. Before this my wifes wifi stopped working on her computer, it would never connect. We even bought a new router and cleared all the history and nothing. Now at the new place my laptop connects up to the internet, and hers connects but you can now browse at all. it shows packed received but none sent? help!

Sounds like a firewall issue.

whats the ip address on her computer once connected?

I've seen them connect to the AP even when the password was entered incorrectly, making you think you can browse as normal. Look at her IP and make sure it's not something like 169.*
