connected to wireless network but cant load webpages


I am running Fedora Core 5 and I am tring to set up an internet connection. I have a Intel Pro/Wireless 2200BG card that I managed to install the firmware for. I have it configured as a new wireless network.

[root@localhost ~]# ifconfig

[root@localhost ~]# iwconfig

I can ping my router without a problem but whenever I try connect to a webpage it says that it could not load. I have tried everything that i was able to find on forums like:
ifdown eth0
ifdown eth1
ifup eth1

If you have anything else that i could try it would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

are you using DHCP? if so, you need to get a DHCP address from the router. This can be done with:

dhclient eth1
or
dhcp eth1


Good Luck
