Question WLAN Card is up but no internet connection

Sorry if this has already been discussed. I installed ndiswapper and got my card to activate. Both lights are on, and iwconfig shows that it is communicating with the router. BUT, when I try to go on line, nothing happens. Any idea what I might be missing? Thanks

Try ping your router, if all went fine then check /etc/resolv.conf if dns propably configured.
Hopefully there's a line telling: nameserver <IP-adres wireless modem>

Maybe this thread is interesting for you as well:
