I'm with AOL and had a Speedtouch 510 wired router, I recently upgraded to a wireless speedtouch 585 router.

Connected to the router is the following:

A 4 port switch
My Laptop

Connected to the switch is:
x 2 Xbox 360
PS3
GF's Laptop

I want to connect my wireless laptop and the PS3 to the router via wireless, they are finding the router but not the internet. Whereas the wired devices in the switch are fine.

The thing that is confusing me more, my Laptop even wired doesn't pick up the internet, but can see the router and other devices on the network.
The other laptop (gf's) works fine.

The DSL and Internet LED's are lit up fine on the router. I have tried resetting it and the software numerous times but for some reason mine just won't connect to the internet :(

Any ideas???

Have you set any ip, dns servers or gateways manually on the laptop? If you can connect to the other devices connected via the switch, it could be a problem with your dns settings.

On the laptop what OS you running ?

Can you ping IP address's on the new eg external ?

Can you ping WWW address's ?

Are you running any firewall on the machine ?
