Cannot use wireless connection on Debian (Sarge)

I've been trying for some time now to get my box in the basement hooked up to the wireless net upstairs. I have the linux wlan-ng package installed and everything works great. I tail the /var/messages and it goes all the way through until it says LINKSTATUS=CONNECTED. Then, when I try to ping someone/thing or browse in firefox it doesn't work! I know the access point is a Microsoft mn-500 and the usb reciever is a mn-510 (yeah, they're microsoft, but they were free) and that the a.p. is in fact using dynamic IP. I'm thinking that might be the snag. There's no way that I know of to turn off the dynamic IP, and i'm really desperate for some help.

Dunno about wireless, sorry. But if you post in the wrong place, you can report your own post to a mod asking for it to be moved, rather than cross-posting.

Please do not post the same thread in more than one forum. Picking the most relevant forum and posting it once there makes it easier for other members to help you and keeps the discussion all in one place.

Like digiot said, feel free to use the "Report this post to a moderator" link below your post and request that it is moved.
