T42 ibm wireless from SMC wireless router ok running printer

\015 But not finding the web. Mozilla won't bring up Google but my Linux partition wireless runs my Brother 9840 wireless printer all right. This is a new situation. \015\012I've always had good wireless pick up wherever I've traveled but on coming home this time I had SMC help me set up encryption for some security and then had Brother tech help me with the network to my printer, and immediately after, I found that my wireless would not automatically find my router without going into 'Connet to Other Wireless Network..., entering the name of my network, selecting wireless security method 'WEP 64/128-bit Hex' and entering my encryption key. \015\012That worked fine for a week, then suddenly this new situation develops where I can't get on the web, and have to use my windows pc model to access the internet fine off the same router. \015\012Incidentally, I haven't been able to access my windows side of the partition for weeks after hitting a key too fast and not even knowing which one when I was starting the laptop up from cold while it was taking 10 seconds or so to choose Ubuntu 8.04.2 automatically. \015\012When I want to go into Window, I would just cursor down to xp, which \015\012i seldom use because I think 'Uncle Bill' deserves a rest while some of \015\012us use stable platforms like Linux distributions. [Ubuntu for me]\015\012\015\012Any help and direction will be appreciated. \015\012Malcolm\015
