    Hi Carl – Welcome to Askageek.com!

    Has your laptop ever been able to connect to different sites from this wireless router?

    I would suggest the following before getting too indepth into troubleshooting.

    1. Clear the current wireless profile from the computer that is not working correctly.
    2. Check your network adapter TCP/IP Properties and verify that there are no static IP/DNS settings configured to the adapter.
    3. Re-configure the wireless connection on the computer.
    4. Try to go to the sites that you previously could not.

    Let me know if the above works, if it does not then I will provide you with further troubleshooting steps.
